So much more than justa spy story, Kim is one of the most enjoyable books.One of the particular pleasures of reading Kim is the full rangeof emotion, knowledge, and experience that Rudyard Kipling giveshis complex hero, Kim O'Hara, the orphaned son of an Irish soldierstationed in India.Raised by an opium-addicted half-caste woman since his equallydissolute father's death, the boy has grown up in the streets ofLahore.From his father and the woman who raised him, Kim has come tobelieve that a great destiny awaits him.when, at last, the long-awaited colonel comes along, Kim isrecruited as a spy in Britain's struggle to maintain its colonialgrip on India.There is the stereotypical Westernized Indian Babu Huree Chanderwith his atrocious English, but there is also Kim's friend andmentor, the Afghani horse trader Mahub Ali, and the gentle Tibetanlama with whom Kim travels along the Grand Trunk Road.Kim is a rogue like Huck Finn and Oliver Twist. He is the manfor all opportunities and is called the "Friend of allMankind".Kim is probably one of the best books ever written on India.This treasure describes India with a love and power of observationthat is absolutely captivating and charming at the same time.Rudyard Kipling, the Nobel Prize-winning author of the JungleBook, brought you another masterpiece.It is a timeless classic indeed.

This was her final completed novel before herdeath, and was published posthumously.As is often the case with Austen's fictions, Persuasion dealswith the social issues of the times and paints a fascinatingportrait of Regency England, especially when dealing with the classsystem. Rigid social barriers existed - and everyone wanted tomarry "up" to a higher station - and, of course, into wealth.This is also a very poignant and passionate story of love,disappointment, loss and redemption. The point Austen makes here,is that one should not ever be persuaded to abandon core values andbeliefs, especially for ignoble goals. There are consequences,always.Persuasion is the most highly esteemed novel of Austen.
Dracula Audio Book 1.0 APK
Appieverse
The classic vampire story by Bram Stokerrevolves around a struggle between good and evil, tradition andmodernity, and lust versus chastity. The author didn’t inventvampires, but his novel has so captured the public’s imaginationthat he is rightly considered their popularizer.In this audio book, you will meet not only the Count himself,but heroes Jonathan Harker and Abraham Van Helsing, plus an arrayof madmen, psychiatrists, and fair maidens who cross paths with thefanged menace.Written in 1897, Bram Stoker's Dracula is, hands down, thegreatest horror novel ever written. In addition, it is also anenduring classic of literature. The most striking characteristic ofStoker's masterpiece is its solid grounding in late 19th-centuryVictorianism.It is a classic of fiction, fascinating for its subject matterand still the subject of films a hundred years later. CountDracula, the epitome of evil, is exotic enough to keep even themost jaded reader of his exploits interested in their outcome, andgrounded enough in the reality of evil to make even doubters wonderwhether evil can be transmitted from one person to another againstone's will.The novel begins with the arrival of Jonathan Harker, a lawyerrepresenting a London real estate agency, at the Transylvaniancastle of Count Dracula to clinch the deal by which the count willmove to a British estate.Details about Harker's arrival by coach, his greeting at thecastle, which has no doors except the front door, his reception bythe count, and his instructions regarding where he may go or not gowithin the castle set the tone and establish the mysteriousbackground of the count and a sense of dread regarding the outcomefor Harker.
