The Jungle Book Book Reviews

Rudyard Kipling

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 bookโ€™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, heโ€™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 storyโ€™s messages continue to be relevant today. More than just an all-ages adventure tale filled with talking animals, Kiplingโ€™s classic is a metaphor for acceptance and a touching exploration of themes of revenge, loyalty, and family.

Missing. I love this story, but at least half of Mogli's story is missing. I have a rather old copy of this story, and the story of the war animals and the seals was not in it.

Awesome. Yah, this book is amazing, read it out of curiousity and it was expertly put together and a nice change from the Disney movie. Loved both though!

Ok. This book was good but it had some adult content or language in it, but overall it was ok.

The Jungle Book. Having 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 donโ€™t recall reading anything directly by Kipling. I know Iโ€™ve read Rikki Tikki Tavi but an abridged version which is odd because itโ€™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. Thereโ€™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.

What a cool ๐Ÿ˜Ž story about life in the Indian jungle ๐ŸŒด.. This book ๐Ÿ“— about Mowgli the little lost ๐Ÿ˜ž orphan boy ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿผ and feral child ๐Ÿง’๐Ÿผ, his adoptive wolf ๐Ÿบ family ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ, his animal ๐Ÿฆ’๐Ÿฆ“๐Ÿฆ” friends Baloo the bear ๐Ÿป, Bagheera the panther ๐Ÿ†, Hathi the elephant ๐Ÿ˜, Chil the raptor bird ๐Ÿฆ…, and Kaa the python ๐Ÿ, & enemies Tabaqui the jackal and Shere Khan the tiger ๐Ÿ…, Buldeo the wicked hunter, & the civilized humans of the man-village, and his new adoptive kind, loving ๐Ÿฅฐ human mother ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผ, Messua and her kind, loving ๐Ÿฅฐ husband, and other animal ๐Ÿฆ’๐Ÿฆ“๐Ÿฆ” tales written by the famous book ๐Ÿ“—author โœ๐Ÿผ, Rudyard Kipling himself is amazing ๐Ÿคฉ!

It is awesome. So so so so so so great

Loved it. I loved it it was a very good childhood book not boring sometimes confused but overall great PS to all the roof people out there people work almost years to make books so be thankful Praying for witnesses of COVID 19 ๐Ÿ™๐ŸงŽโ€โ™€๏ธ

Much more than Disney entails. Great and wish there were more movies of the different parts of The Jungle Book


The Jungle Book. Loved it

Hit & Miss. Some stories were better than others, lots of good knowledge, I can say Iโ€™ve seen a lot of similar behavior in my lifetime.

Excellent writing but incomplete version?. I enjoyed the writing & story but it seemed to end in the middle 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.

Yes!. Ignore those ignorant blokes who say this book is rubbish! It's fantastic. I love the Disney movie and it's a real treat to see where it all came from. Superb. And it's free :)

Jungle Book. Amazing. Disney only did first chapter and completely different story for kids. Glad I read it.

Kinda racist. Shrug

The jungle book. I love the jungle book because i love the songs and i love manco. I also love the elephants marching

Cool. Love it

The Jungle Book. Wonderful stories!

Only part 1 included. This is only part 1. There is a part two that is not included in this edition.

AWFUL!!. I hated it it was long and boring.

Very good, but hard to understand just a little bit. I really enjoyed this book, however the language needs a second or two to understand.

Very Interesting. I loved this book it is very interesting and a little advanced

This book was great.. This book is a book you need to read in chunks, but after you finish them, you're glad you took the time to read them. Don't read to small children!!!! EVER.

Timeless. One of the best

Great. It's awesome!

Ok boomer. Your a boomer your a boomer ok boomer ok boomer

Just like the movie. This like awesome

Terrible. Just terrible.

Amazing. It'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.

Uhhโ€ฆ. This stuff is soo CRAPY.

Jungle Book. I loved this classic tale. So much fun to read Great Writing!

Wow. Awful do not buy this trash even if it is free

The Jungle Book. Enjoyed re-reading old favorites. Kipling uses great word pictures to describe India.

Warning: only an Abridged version.. It was not the full book, a very short version of the masterpiece. I liked it, but feel, cheated. The full tale is far better.

The jungle book. Great book

A classic!!. This ageless classic is simple enough to intrigue a child, but it has symbolism and depth that will challenge the most careful of scholars.

It was alright. I didnโ€™t really like it bc I got bored so I just watched the movie and i know it wonโ€™t be the same but it was good enough

The jungle book. A great book, this was my first book from this app. Would definitely recommend this amazing book.

Great book. The Jungle Books is a great book, really enjoyable.

Jungle book. It was very long it was interesting ad fun my fav riot character was Mowgli he was so funny lol he made me laugh so thank you for letting me reading this book bye

Pretty good. Still Gucci

Good. Could be better mid*

I Love It!. I can't stop reading it easy to read and very well written. ๎…ˆ๎Œ๎€Ž๎—

Classic. Haven't got the book on my iPad but I am reading the actual book it's interesting I haven't read it all but I think I know all the characters the only reason I wrote this was because I was bored there is not much to do in bed this isn't perfect but it's still a classic

I enjoy. I love it I would definitely recommend I never read anything

Jungle book. This book is ok to read but I would prob only read it a couple of times

Good for free. Good ol classic

Marvellous. Itโ€™s an amazing book that deserves the immense respect it has today

Loved it! (Especially Bagheera). I think itโ€™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, itโ€™s a really great book and Bagheera is the best.

Ish. It wasn't that bad nor good either so that's y I give a 3!! sorry!!!

not that bad. it doesnโ€™t tell the exact story from the original book and film but it was entertaining recommended for those look for a fan fiction style story

Good but could be better. It's a good book but in a lot of places it's extremely long and can get boring

Giod. Good

T. I enjoyed that Modigliani belonged to the wolves ๐Ÿบ. I thought they were going to eat him

Biptgi. This book does not work don't click it it will stay on your iPod touch or iPhone even if you delete it

Bad. Rubbish book wast of time ๐Ÿ˜ 

This will make you a little kid. This is a great book but it is very long ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Amazeballs. Amazeballs XD

Jungle book. This book is very good I would definitely recommend this book to my friends and my family this book tells you what the story line with there tweaks I gave this a 4 star . To get the book up to a 5 star maybe he opening be interesting as it just says the charatars

The vividness of the characters will never fail to amaze. The vividness of the characters will never fail to amaze

The jungle book. Good read

If. If 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.

Amazing. Very good book

Dont waste your time. I 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. Iโ€™m not sure if someone feels the same, but the anthropocentrism make me sick so I swear Iโ€™ll never open this book again. I stopped at page 100 and just canโ€™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?

A Classic!. You canโ€™t get any better than a masterpiece from Rudyard Kipling, Jungle Book is probably his best!

The Jungle book. This was a fantastic book I would definitely read it again.

Ok. An ok book but has a few faults ...

Good. Could be better

Absolutely amazing. I loved the book I give this a 1000000 stars I am 10 and love this. You should 5 star if good

The jungle book. Superb story

Ti is a good book to reed. 1122

Jungle talk. It is a very nice book to read but it has got three problems, one is that it has to many pages and that it has no pictures and that it isn't a free audiobook.

Rubbish. It was an old classic but now it's just absolutely rubbish

Sohail. Quit good I put it as three stars๎Œต๎Œต๎Œต
