The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling Book Summary

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Although most of The Jungle Book is set in India - where Rudyard Kipling spent much of his early life - he actually wrote this beloved story collection in Vermont. The most famous of the book’s seven stories feature Mowgli, a boy raised by a wolf pack and mentored by head wolf Akela, who teaches his human charge to survive and even thrive in the jungle. But when Mowgli eventually finds himself in human company again, he’s treated as an outsider and feared for his differences. Eventually, Mowgli uses his experiences to try and help the villagers and the animals co-exist in peace.

Many people got to know The Jungle Book through the Disney adaptation - and the story’s messages continue to be relevant today. More than just an all-ages adventure tale filled with talking animals, Kipling’s classic is a metaphor for acceptance and a touching exploration of themes of revenge, loyalty, and family.

The Jungle BookHaving seen the multiple adaptations by Disney (yet to see the version by Serkis) I decided to finally read it. Aside from the poem If, I don’t recall reading anything directly by Kipling. I know I’ve read Rikki Tikki Tavi but an abridged version which is odd because it’s already a short story. Only three of the stories deal with Mowgli. The others are all animal based with poems following. They often compliment the story and are briefly mentioned in them. There’s a reason why Rudyard Kipling is considered a master of the English language. You can find out for yourself by reading this collection of stories..Score: 5/5

Excellent writing but incomplete version?I enjoyed the writing & story but it seemed to end in the middle of......as if there were several chapters left to read. I had read some reviews before selecting which Jungle Book to read & at that I just guessed at which version to choose. I never knew that would be a problem. Certainly not by hundreds of pages! If I choose another version, will I read a more complete book or a whole different book? I think I'll just go to the book store for this one..Score: 4/5

AmazingIt's so sad seeing so many ignorant kids reviewing this. Rudyard Kipling is an amazing author and wrote so many great stories into this. I really hate how so many people think of only the Disney version when the Jungle Book is mentioned (which is nothing like this book, at all). Great book, more people need to be reading this..Score: 5/5

Loved it! (Especially Bagheera)I think it’s an amazing book. My favourite character is definitely Bagheera. I think the people complaining that you have to read it instead of listening to it should really just get a brain because are you kidding me? The whole point of a book is to read it! That really annoys me. Anyway, it’s a really great book and Bagheera is the best..Score: 5/5

IfIf you haven't read this book then please find time to do so. It's amazing to read Kipling's observations of human and animal behaviour especially during that era . It evokes the Far East and the lifestyle of those both native and foreign. Remarkable observation and narration. I knew of Jungle book and knew some of the characters and promised myself I would read it all one day. Make yourself the same promise...and keep it..Score: 5/5

Dont waste your timeI guess it was a nice book back in last century, but it is absolutely horrible now. TBH, I dont think it was about the law of jungle, rather it's law of human. I’m not sure if someone feels the same, but the anthropocentrism make me sick so I swear I’ll never open this book again. I stopped at page 100 and just can’t keep reading it. Just think about it, by what right does a 10-year-old human child have the power to scare off all other creatures through a stare in the eye?.Score: 1/5
