I would and have recommended the book to my friends. This book is written about an orphan boy, but written for adults.
I liked the way that Kipling can put you in among the crowds in rural India in the late 1800's. He brings the sounds and smells right into your mind and lets you feel like you are among the people he is writing about. There is a game Kim was taught that the CIA uses today to teach their agents to see what they are looking at. I am amazed that the story is over a century old and still relevant today. It is a full and rich story that will bring the reader many hours of pleasure, long after the tale is told.
Why Kim of course!
Kipling wrote the "Jungle Book" and it was made into a children's movie, but once you read it you will know it was written for the adult mind. Kim is a master piece and should be on your "Don't Miss" list. You will love this book and I hope you think of this review after your done reading it.
I have already listened to this book twice. You will hate to turn it off to sleep. You can trust Jim Butcher to tell a great tale. Harry Dresden is a "one of a kind character." The flavor of the world Harry lives in is as sweet as honey. You can only hold your breath while waiting to see what Harry will do next.
Harry Dresden is my favorite character. He is the same smart a$$ as I was as a kid. He feels the pain of his choices and is always trying to do the right thing. Yet he is still learning that life is hard and often requires personal sacrifice for those we love. Harry always steps up to the challenges of life.
I like the way he reads the Dresden series. He does a fine job.
I laughed often and found myself on the edge of my seat. You won't go wrong with this book.
If this is the first book of Harry Dresden you have read, you have a lot of fun ahead of you. I envy you the chance to read these books for the first time. I have reread many of the Dresden files. But, there is just one first time for each book. Have fun, I did !
