A very enjoyable short story. This was my first forray into kipling and i think i will be reading more of his work in the future. I read this after hearing about the movie. The movie closely follows the plot of this short story and i was suprised by the depth contained in this 30 page novella.

Amazing short story

I have been reading Kipling recently. His Jungle Book was good so I bought "The Man who would be King" on Nook Book. This short story is okay, but very short! I would recommend renting the movie that was made from it instead. Michael Caine, Sean Connery and Christopher Plummer are great in the movie and the screen play makes Kipling's story very entertaining!

Slightly bent over with long flowing leaves that reach down to the ground and surrounding a small circle with a curtain. Inside is a flat rock and a small stream filled with fish.
