The Man Who Would Be King Rudyard Kipling read online review & book description:

It is about two British adventurers in British India who become kings of Kafiristan, a remote part of Afghanistan. The story was inspired by the exploits of James Brooke, an Englishman who became the first White Rajah of Sarawak in Borneo; and by the travels of American adventurer Josiah Harlan, who was granted the title Prince of Ghor in perpetuity for himself and his descendants. It incorporates a number of other factual elements such as the European-like appearance of many Nuristani people, and an ending modelled on the return of the head of the explorer Adolf Schlagintweit to colonial administrators

    This is a fake book. Only the first chapter, apperantly made up by a Chinese hacker. It is not the book. The 90 5 star reviews should have been a give away. Fake.
