Plain Tales from the Hills (Penguin Classics) - Rudyard Kipling

Plain Tales from the Hills, Rudyard Kipling's first collection of short stories, ... more

established his reputation and brought India to
the British imagination. Including the stories
"Lispeth", "Beyond the Pale" and "In the Pride of
His Youth", they tell of soldiers, wise children,
exiles, forbidden romances and divided identities,
creating a rich portrait of Anglo-Indian society.
Originally published for a newspaper in Lahore
when Kipling was a journalist, the tales were
later revised by him to re-create as vividly as
possible the sights and smells of India for
readers at home. Far from being a celebration of
empire, these stories explore the barriers between
races, classes and sexes, and convey all the
tensions and contradictions of colonial life.

similar by Price (less than 5 GBP)
Fascinating, often witty but ultimately horrifying story
Style a little overblown on occasion (*)
A gripping, moving, very worthwhile read
Discourages with its length, which is unfortunate (*)
Perfect little gems
None I can think of. There's not enough of 'em! (*)
Believable, lovable characters, some humour, some emotion, good interreactions, well-written, easy to re-read, appeals to all ages
Some 'preaching' typical of the period, won't appeal to those who like high action or excitement (*)
similar by Title (First Letter) (P)
Excellent writing, great theme, hilarious
None - maybe the vagueness, but taht's kind of the point! (*)
humour
obscurity (*)
similar by Author Surname (First Letter) (K)
briliant analysis of justice
long (*)
