79 – Quest for Kim

Ein interessanter Ansatz den Abenteuern der Figur “Kim” von Rudyard Kipling nachzuforschen.

Leider völlig uninteressant für ein wissenschaftliches Gerichtsgutachten.

This book is for all those who love Kim, that masterpiece of Indian life in which Kipling immortalized the Great Game. Fascinated since childhood by this strange tale of an orphan boy’s recruitment into the Indian secret service, Peter Hopkirk here retraces Kim’s footsteps across Kipling’s India to see how much of it remains.

To attempt this with a fictional hero would normally be pointless. But Kim is different. For much of this Great Game classic was inspired by actual people and places, thus blurring the line between the real and the imaginary. Less a travel book than a literary detective story, this is the intriguing story of Peter Hopkirk’s quest for Kim and a host of other shadowy figures.
