    "I couldn't get interested, as hard as I tried"
    What disappointed you about The Man Who Would Be King?

    I thought the story had more to it... but it was plain boring and it dragged many times.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Rudyard Kipling again?

    No.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Not sure it had much to do with the performance.


    What character would you cut from The Man Who Would Be King?

    The narrator.
