The Jungle Book Rudyard Kipling read online review & book description:

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Although most of The Jungle Book is set in India - where Rudyard Kipling spent much of his early life - he actually wrote this beloved story collection in Vermont. The most famous of the book’s seven stories feature Mowgli, a boy raised by a wolf pack and mentored by head wolf Akela, who teaches his human charge to survive and even thrive in the jungle. But when Mowgli eventually finds himself in human company again, he’s treated as an outsider and feared for his differences. Eventually, Mowgli uses his experiences to try and help the villagers and the animals co-exist in peace.

Many people got to know The Jungle Book through the Disney adaptation - and the story’s messages continue to be relevant today. More than just an all-ages adventure tale filled with talking animals, Kipling’s classic is a metaphor for acceptance and a touching exploration of themes of revenge, loyalty, and family.

    Having seen the multiple adaptations by Disney (yet to see the version by Serkis) I decided to finally read it. Aside from the poem If, I don’t recall reading anything directly by Kipling. I know I’ve read Rikki Tikki Tavi but an abridged version which is odd because it’s already a short story. Only three of the stories deal with Mowgli. The others are all animal based with poems following. They often compliment the story and are briefly mentioned in them. There’s a reason why Rudyard Kipling is considered a master of the English language. You can find out for yourself by reading this collection of stories.

    I really enjoyed this book, however the language needs a second or two to understand.

  • Excellent writing but incomplete version?

    I enjoyed the writing & story but it seemed to end in the middle of......as if there were several chapters left to read. I had read some reviews before selecting which Jungle Book to read & at that I just guessed at which version to choose. I never knew that would be a problem. Certainly not by hundreds of pages! If I choose another version, will I read a more complete book or a whole different book? I think I'll just go to the book store for this one.
