Reviews

UNIQUE COLLECTION

(4.5 stars)

Eclectic is over-used; ditto for potpourri. Suffice it to say that there is no way to categorize this collection. Even the few that are not truly interesting still inspire the listener to marvel at the unique workings of Kipling's mind. Not every author produces even one story which displays such new ideas; in this collection Kipling displays several. He does save the best for last.
