About This Item
Rudyard Kiplingâ€™s Kim tells the story of Kimball â€śKimâ€ť O'Hara, an imperial orphan scavenging a hand-to-mouth existence in British India during the late 1890s. The novel functions as a fictionalization of Kiplingâ€™s own Indian childhood, but it is also a strong example of the adventure stories that became especially popular in the heyday of the British Empire. Kim has been noted for its detailed portrait of the people, culture, and varied religions of India. Kim was serialized in McClure's Magazine from December 1900 to October 1901 as well as in Cassell's Magazine from January to November 1901. It is ranked 34th on The Guardianâ€™s list of the 100 best novels and 78th on Modern Libraryâ€™s â€ś100 Bestâ€ť English-language novels of the 20th century. In 2003, the book was listed on the BBC's The Big Read poll of the UK's "best-loved novel.â€ť
