The NoteStream™ app proudly presents Kipling’s classic The Man Who Would Be King. The journey from scheming adventurer to worshipped ruler wasn’t so far, and it mattered not that he was winging it. (Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?) But in life, as in politics, timing is everything.

The more things change...

Never read this story by Kipling, and probably wouldn't have if I hadn't found it here. Strangely, the story is pretty relatable, and the old pictures and illustrations make it easy to read. It's broken into short installments, helping it to fit into a busy schedule. Some cool articles in here on other topics too, like history and science and beer. Guess everything goes with beer. Give this app a try - I think you'll like it!

Cool Story

Haven't read this before, but enjoyed it. Really like the way they have other articles that fit with the book - stuff about the time period, Kipling etc. They've got chat rooms for the books so you can text with other people reading what you are, which is fun. It's a new thing for this app, so the chat rooms can be a bit quiet, but cool idea.

Kipling? Awesome!

Really glad to see Kipling presented in an app. Never read this novella, so glad to have the opportunity with NoteStream ...
