3 hours 26 minutes
Rudyard Kipling's classic comes to life in this brilliantly performed classic! Run with Mowgli through the tangled Indian Jungle as he wages war against the great, lame tiger, Shere Khan. Hunt with Kaa in the twilight, stalk through the forest on noiseless feet with Bagheera, and learn the Law of the Jungle and the maxims of old Baloo the Brown bear.

This audiobook includes the two most famous stories from 'The Jungle Books' collection - Mowgli, the man cub, and Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, the mongoose. Timeless tales of heroism, with their priceless characters, and flare of Indian culture.

Born in Bombay, Kipling infuses his taste for the lore of his birth country into his writing, giving his readers vivid pictures of the jungles and the bungalows in which his stories take place. He wrote two volumes of stories which he titled The Jungle Books volume one and two. But many of those stories do not hold the place in the hearts of his readers like Mowgli and Rikki-Tikki.

Awesome! The narrator is spot on. He does different voices for everyone and you get to know each character. A GREAT storyteller. So good. Yes, this is Abridged. But the chapters that are included are full and unaltered text. The Jungle Book is actually two books - the jungle book(S) and an unabridged version of only one book would be nearer 7-8 hours so really ALL of the audiobooks on are abridged versions. This is abridged well and I can see why they did it this way.
