    One thought on “The Jungle Books”

    1. My new favourite.Incredible. 10/10Timeless. So much thought and imagination. Animal lover forever.Everything made sense, the laws of the jungle. Can't rememeber the last time i read something so amazing and unique.I dont cry reading books but this very nearly got me at the end.

    2. eBookOnce again, I'm struck by the savagery that resonates throughout Kipling's writing. It would be so easy to think of The Jungle Book in a more Disney-fied light: talking animals, singing, the rhythmic cadences of a fairy tale or lullaby. But overarching all that is the ever-present reminder that the world of the jungle is a world of nature, red in tooth and claw. Mowgli is raised by wolves and instructed by Baloo for the explicit purpose of survival in a harsh world that actively seeks his d [...]

    3. Yeah, yeah, ignore the White Man's Burden stuff. Kipling is one of the best storytellers who ever lived, and neither the author's obnoxious politics nor a complete butchery of this wonderful wonderful story in its many terrible movie incarnations can take away the fact that the Mowgli stories of this and the Second Jungle Book are some of the greatest tales ever created. Read this, for real. It's a classic.

    4. My Mom bought me The Jungle Book from her school and for years I didn't read it.Not until the summers of 2015 came and I promised myself that I'm going to complete that years' ' challenge. After reading the book, I remembered the days I used to watch the animated version on TV. Everything was perfect. Thank you Rudyard Kipling.

    5. So what is The Jungle Book?A mosaic of man-cub-centric proverbs, draped in prose as leafy and antiquated as old growth jungle vines, dappled with splashes of whimsical imagination and flecks of the mud and dirt of colonialist attitudes and appetites, it truly is a far cry from the classic and much beloved Disney movie of the same name.Which, I for one, wore out my VHS copy because I watched it so much. (Back in the day, Beauty and the Beast was my other Disney fave, if you must know.)And, readin [...]

    6. Whilst I think it is important to note and be aware of Rudyard Kipling’s acknowledged support for imperialism and colonialism when reading any of his works – these aren’t themes which I found to be particularly evident let alone prevalent throughout this book. Whilst we may find his politics distasteful at best and abhorrent at worst, I do think it is valid to judge a book (or any other work of art) outside of and standing alone from the artists political / moral beliefs – more specifica [...]

    7. Cómo me pasa con casi todas las colecciones de cuentos. Me gustó pero evidentemente hay algunos cuentos que no están a la altura.

    8. I read this to Nick because I read it myself as a first grader. (Yes, I was a precocious reader.) Since I haven't even glanced at it in the quarter century of intervening years, it was interesting to come back to it. In some ways I was disappointed as an adult reader. The formal, quasi-Elizabethan language the animals use to talk to each other struck me as pretentious, which I don't believe was at all my original reaction. There was that almost total lack of female characters that is almost inev [...]

    9. The Jungle Books: I should have realized when it states "Books" there are other tales other than just the Jungle Book. I guess I was just a little dense from reading the Little Golden Book version for so long to my Son and Grandsons. So once I got passed the point of 340 pages not dedicated strictly to Mowgli I began to read and enjoy the many tales enclosed.Everyone (Im sure) knows the story of Mowgli and have seen the versions of films. It was the first film my Son saw as a toddler and the mov [...]

    10. Jungle Books… I was really iffy coming in whether I’d like this; never read Kipling before. At my favorite bookstore, I saw that they had one of the Reader’s Digest books that I love so much, but my dad said he had an old copy of this book, so I went ahead and went with the old copy (chiefly because it was free to me). Contrary to what I thought, it was more a collection of short stories than one contiguous tale, though Mowgli featured in several of them, and it chronically various episode [...]

    11. Simplemente perfecto, de principio a final. Es una edición maravillosa y super completa con hasta el ultimo detalle.Todos los cuentos del libro son únicos y te dejan algo diferente, aunque hay algunos que disfrute mas que otros. Lo único que me dejo con un sabor raro en la boca fue el apéndice del final que no me convenció mucho pero al parecer fue lo primero que el autor escribió sobre Mowgli, lo que tiene mucho sentido, por ende lo perdonamos.Si vos esperas en este libro encontrar la pel [...]

    12. Three and a half stars.Well, this was kind of a pleasant surprise. I expected absolutely nothing from this book. Instead I found a couple of stories exploring the eternal question of what is good and what is evil.The Jungle Books have been on my shelf for decades. I haven’t the foggiest idea where I got it from. Probably, I’ve inherited it from my mom or my parents-in-law, as this is not a book I’ve would have wanted to buy myself.The books consists of fifteen different tales. Some take pa [...]

    13. A series of stories, mostly but not always set in India. I did not know when I first picked this up that not all of these tales feature the most famous character: Mowgli, the baby carried off by a lame tiger and rescued by wolves, who grows to be master of the jungle. (In this, he predates Tarzan by a couple of decades.) I remember reading some, but not all, of this book many years ago, but I remembered little of it, especially from the second book.Some of the tales are well-known ("Rikki-Tikki- [...]

    14. This review covers both the first and second Jungle Books, which are included in this edition. These included a lot of material which surprised me. I was not aware how much Disney altered the original material. Mowgli is so much more than a whiny git. Kipling's Mowgli is very much a proto-Conan. Kipling is more of a master of the action scene than Robert E. Howard, and the influence seems clear to me. Another clear influence is the discussion of civilization versus barbarism within the Jungle Bo [...]

    15. I REALLY don't like this edition. One of the things I liked about the versions I read as a child was that the cover was nondescript. The picture on the cover (photography credited to William Dow/CORBUS) is disturbing. I don't care for the abuse of tigers in the Mowgli stories. Shere Khan (named, by the way, after a Mughal emperor) is vilified, slandered, and murdered without compunction. This is not only a threat to the few surviving tigers--it's part of a general imperialist slander against any [...]

    16. The first time I met Mowgli was when I was very small. I must have been only around two years old and I had watched the Disney film. I HATED it. But when I realized that it was based off of a book (when I was around five or six) I immediately went to the library and checked out both Jungle Books. It was then that I fell in love.Kipling is very problematic racially and politically. Throughout these books it is easy to pick up on Kipling's inherent prejudice. Through Mowgli the reader is introduce [...]

    17. A great collection of stories, of which the Mowgli stories are the best. Kipling writes about the jungle world with great respect for the natural knowledge of the animal inhabitants from whom Mowgli learns more than many do from their human teachers.

    18. really a beautiful collection of stories. Though the book somehow leaves out the inclusion of Baloo singing "the Bear Necessities" a gross oversight in my opinion.

    19. Read this to the kids and we all really enjoyed it. I think I liked the stories that weren't actually jungle stories (one about a white seal and a few others) more than the kids did but they all really enjoyed the stories about Mowgli. AO year 3 scheduled read.

    20. An absolute classic!Like most people, I have seen the Disney classic film, Jungle Book, and it is actually one of my favourite Disney films.I always thought that I had read this book as a child and the first story is basically the story that we all know and love with Mowgli, Baloo, Bagheera, Shere Khan and Kaa the snake. However, there are so many different stories in this book, some I had heard of like Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, the mongoose who can kill even the biggest snake, but we are introduced to [...]

    21. When I was little, I was read this book by my mother. It was a red book with gold lettering, and it still sits on my bookshelf. Still intact, still with its bright red color and its shining gold lettering. Yet I can't remember the book itself I remember the feel of the cover; the almost rough surface felt pleasant between my two hands Yet still, I can't remember reading it. I hope to read it again someday, but for now I will just imagine the golden lettering and the bright gold letters. Then one [...]

    22. Vì mình đọc bản Việt nên mình sẽ review bằng tiếng Việt.Chuyện Rừng Xanh là một quyển sách thú vị. Mình rất thích câu chuyện của Mowgli dù cho nó có khác với phiên bản của của Disney, Mowgli của bác Rudyard Kipling rắn rỏi và linh động hơn cậu nhóc hay hờn dỗi của Disney rất nhiều. Hai nhân vật Baloo và Bagheera vẫn là hai nhân vật yêu thích của mình dù là trong phim hay truyện, cả hai đều th [...]

    23. Before Tarzan there was Mowgli, lost in a jungle in India as a child and taken in by a family of wolves. He is raised by the animals of the jungle, and has adventures with them. He learns loyalty and devotion and the Jungle Law. Every small boy eventually grows up but, to pararphrase Kipling, his adult adventures are a different story. Written in 1894 and 1895 the two collections of adventure/jungle/wilderness stories are included in one volume. Mowgli and his stories are the vast majority, but [...]

    24. I read this as a "I need to be culturally literate" read. I enjoyed about 2/3rds of this. And to be honest, had to force myself through the other 1/3. Glad I read it but glad it is done.

    25. I haven't quite finished this book yet, but I fell in love with it quite quickly and I think it's going to stay that way. An absolute timeless masterpiece that despite its age (over 120 years old) is still captivating readers today, no less myself. I've been completely hooked on the various adventures of Mowgli and his animal friends since page 1, and would fondly recommend this wonderful book to any avid reader who hasn't yet had the pleasure of reading it.Just one word of advice - don't open i [...]

    26. I'm glad I read this. I was prompted to do so after watching the new movie, in order to learn which movie was closest to the original stories. It turns out that both have their similarities and differences.The characters are all stronger in the original books: Kipling is not afraid of making his characters unlikeable - perhaps especially Mowgli himself, who lords it over the animals in the jungle with unpleasant cockiness. But I liked his Kaa better than the evil snake in both films, and his wis [...]
