This audiobook collection features some of Rudyard Kiplings most cherished stories. The lead story, The Man Who Would Be King performed with a pleasant vigor from notable Audible narrator Rebecca Burns, is the tale of two men and their fateful journey to slyly conquer and take over a small region. After some success, the two men find their luck turning and what becomes of them is beyond tragedy. Also included in this collection, performed with the same dedication by Rebecca Burns, is "Wee Willie Winkie", "The Drums of the Fore and Aft", "Mary Postgate", and "The Maltese Cat".
Classical stories that have not lost the sense of thrill and interest. Well written and well read, the listener gets a sense of what it was like, and in many parts still is, in that part of the world that is so important today.
