Narrator George Taylor’s raspy voice and English accent perfectly match the "hut, one, two" pace of Kipling’s explorations of colonialism in the nineteenth century. The short stories that accompany the novella are also treated in an effective and dramatic way by this master narrator. Taylor characterizes the men of ambition with the best stiff upper lip imaginable. Moments of daring get the full dramatic treatment, with Taylor leading the charge. Listeners in search of adventure and bravery will find two companions in Taylor and Kipling.
