The Gate of the Hundred Sorrows

Rating: 2 out of 5.

I have never read The Jungle Book – in fact I’m only vaguely aware of its story. This collection of short stories however deals with Northern India, where Kipling grew up. They were a quite random collection and it hardly resonated with me.

The title story, the Gate of the Hundred Sorrows, was rather depressing as it describes the effect of opium addiction.

This was not really for me.
