Set in the days of the British Raj, Kipling's finest novel is the exciting and touching tale of an Irish orphan-boy who has lived free in the streets of Lahore before setting out, with a Tibetan Lama, on a spiritual quest. Kim later enrolls in the Indian Service and simultaneously embarks on an espionage mission of supreme importance. A thrilling climax in the Himalayas occurs when the two quests become entangled. Kim's search for identity is staged within one of the most magnificent and affectionate portrayals of Indian culture in literature.

A Classic beautifully told
The Indian grail quest.
In the mountains, when he rejects the woman's advances and also his Western root.
On the train when Kim disguises the agent on the run and fools the railway police, and his fellow passengers
The finale where the lama gives up his own enlightenment in order to return and help Kim to find his.
The reading added a dimension of gentle understanding which moved and awed me. Truly a one man theatre.
