作品简介

Kim, aka Kimball O'Hara, is the orphan son of a British soldier and a half-caste opium addict in India. While running free through the streets of Lahore as a child he befriends a British secret service agent. Later, attaching himself to a Tibetan Lama on a quest to be freed from the Wheel of Life, Kim becomes the Lama's disciple, but is also used by the British to carry messages to the British commander in Umballa. Kim's trip with the Lama along the Grand Trunk Road is only the first great adventure in the novel.

吉卜林:英国小说家、诗人。以“观察的能力、新颖的想象、雄浑的思想和杰出的叙事才能”,于1907年获得诺贝尔文学奖,他是迄今为止最年轻的获奖者,这也是英国历史上第一个诺贝尔文学奖。吉卜林深受许多国家儿童甚至成人喜爱的作家,他的作品简洁凝炼,新奇浪漫,荡漾着大英帝国式的奋发的精神和意志力,其短篇小说尤为人称道,被誉为“狄更斯的继承人”“英国的巴尔扎克”。马克·吐温曾这样赞美道:“我了解吉卜林的书……它们对于我从来不会变得苍白,它们保持着缤纷的色彩;它们永远是新鲜的。”
