Since I have not read the first Jungle Book, the Mowgli stories were a bit hard to follow at times but I did enjoy the non-Jungle stories more than I expected. I was expecting to find the usual Kipling problems of "White Man's Burden" perspective but there was pleasantly little of it.

Il voto riguarda le sole "Storie di Mowgli", che ne giustificano la lettura. La maggior parte degli altri racconti di contorno sono piuttosto noiosi e non sempre originali; talvolta stonano un po' con l'ambientazione. ( )

I was completely captivated by these stories. This is a book I could not put down. ( )

Not quite as entertaining as the first collection of stories. There's no doubt that the Mowgli stories are the best. ( )

The book appears to be written for children, but this can be misleading. The story is so much more of than fiction. The author hints at this when he includes in this book lines like "money is the only thing that changes hands but never gets warmer" ( )

Das Gesetz des Dschungels - es ist bei weitem das älteste Gesetz der Welt - enthält Vorkehrungen für nahezu alles was dem Dschungel-Volk zustoßen mag, so daß sein Regelwerk nun so volkommen ist, wie Zeit und Gewohnheit es nun machen können.
