From Kipling’s Kim:

“It was intrigue,— of course he knew that much, as he had known all evil since he could speak,— but what he loved was the game for its own sake — the stealthy prowl through the dark gullies and lanes, the crawl up a waterpipe, the sights and sounds of the women’s world on the flat roofs, and the headlong flight from housetop to housetop under cover of the hot dark.”

Kim was a book gave up on on my first read through. When I went back to it, years later I thoroughly enjoyed it and the Great Game which is context that drives it.

I have a special bond with Kim as it took place in a city where I spent several years.
