    "Interesting story"
    Would you listen to Kim again? Why?

    I wouldn't listen to this book again, but I did enjoy it. I became immersed in a strange world that I never knew anything about before hearing this story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The main character is likable and I wanted him to succeed.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Hard question. There are several scenes that stick in my mind now, a few weeks after listening to the book. Probably near the beginning when Kim meets the old man by the canon.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was totally different from books I normally read or listen to, but I enjoyed Kiplings poetic style and attention to detail in the story.
