The story of Kim follows our cheeky, fun-loving hero as he journeys across northern India - from Lahore to the vast beauty of the Himalayan mountains - in the company of the lama. The two of them have different goals, but the physical paths they follow are very similar. Before leaving Lahore, Kim is entrusted by one of his father's friends to deliver a very special message. Through this he meets a member of the British Secret Service and discovers secrets he couldn't have imagined. As the story progresses and his journey continues, Kim begins to learn more and more about what is known as the Great Game. As we follow Kim, we see him transformed from a simple vagabond into a sharpened operative in the dangerous world of politics, betrayal and death. All the excitement of Kim's adventures takes place in the backdrop of a beautiful country full of amazing sights, incredible sounds and an extremely rich culture. In what is considered by many to be Kipling's finest work, he draws on his own experiences of living in India to tell an unforgettable and action-packed story within a vivid and accurate setting.

    Membaca novel grafis memang tak selengkap membaca novel full tulisan. Namun, novel grafis biasanya menggambarkan bagaimana reaksi atau ekspresi tokoh dengan seharusnya. Sayangnya, aku tak menemukan itu di sini. Aku belum pernah membaca Kim, jadi beberapa hal aku bingung, kenapa ekspresi beberapa tokoh dengan ucapannya berbeda? Cukup bintang tiga. Habis ini mau baca novelnya saja. ^^

    I read the novel "Kim" on a Kindle, and I felt that the vibrancy of the story was lost in the dullness of the device. This is a much nicer way to read the story. Sure, it loses some of the detail, but the artwork is lovely. I read the novel "Kim" on a Kindle, and I felt that the vibrancy of the story was lost in the dullness of the device.

    Graphic re-production of this classic 1890's English novel is a boon for lesser mortals like me, the style of Kipling being a bit difficult in the fiction novel. The pictures also attempts to capture the vision of India (Lahore) as the author might have truly imagined, making one visualize British India 100+ years ago. A recommended read!

    I have never read the full book, just this graphic novel version; the graphic novel made me want to read the classic. I've enjoyed what I've read of Kipling's classics (particularly Stalky & Co. and Puck of Pook's Hill); would I like this, too?

    This wasn't one of Kipling's strongest stories. In fact, I found it rather boring. This wasn't one of Kipling's strongest stories. In fact, I found it rather boring.
