    Witty, though Kipling s whale story is a bit better Perhaps brevity really is the soul of wit

    Strange narrative, brilliant illustration.

    The writing is very strange They drop the first part of certain words, exclusively for example, and it just does nothing to add to the reading of the story.


  7. Mloy Mloy says:

    The story was kind of cute and I understand that Rudyard Kipling will be aaccomplished writer than I would even dare dream but I just dislike the narrative I really have no appreciation for writing that uses a tone or dialect that makes the speaker sound like a backwater hillbilly I understand that it a creative writing license to make your characters speak the way they do in order to add a little flavor to the character or a uniqueness to the story, I just don t care for it.
