Russians Though Hopkirk constantly bemoans the Russian advance he doesn t have much to say about Britian s imperial expansion in India the conuest f the Punjab merits a few sentences and the ccupation f Afghanistan twice is all heroic matyrdom and armchair generalship with a century f hindsight A uick read but truly disappointing This is narrative history that can keep ne enthralled from the first to the last page Cliches such as page turner apply No doubt the game itself can be discussed further new books published etc etc but who cares Hopkirk has written a book that had me looking at the

here however much you are made aware f the cynical political game playing behind it all Hopkirk tells his story engagingly if ccasionally dropping into some speculative scene setting As he donned a long uilted coat and black lambskin hat the two men with him watched in silence how do you know there in silence how do you know There narrative problems it covers a long period and the book is

it was for many centuries a pervasive uest harkening back well beyond Great Britain Czarist Russia the Ottoman Empire to the Greeks Romans Mongols Persians amongthers In Hopkirk s book the struggle

N in India and Kipling s sources f inspiration for Kim The history is anglocentric but takes a reasonable view towards Count Lev Nikolaevich Tolstoy (Critical Heritage) other players The writing is unpretentious and clear if somewhatversimplified and given to cliche at times Written in a style that is eminently appropriate for this story The Great Game is a good introductory book for understanding the struggle between Britain and Russia Pasto nudo over Central Asia in the 19th C If you love Kim by Rudyard Kipling you will slobberver every page in this book And I have grown to LOVE Kim Took me a few decades but it s the shit Especially if you read it in a Comp Lit class analyzing the colonial discourse and the unforgivable cries Escaping Me of colonialism If that s you give Kim a chance Written by someone who grew up in Anglo India I think you ll find it extraordinarily insightful despite the presencef the ponderous and stylistically stilted British Empire But back to the style f the Great Game Peter Hopkirk is a very masterful writer for sure but for this story he manages to write the history in the totally anachronistic rip roarin style that you find in colonial adventure stories late Victorian colonial adventure Basically it s fun to read in the way that Gunga Din is fun to watch Plus it incorporates classic spy novel style as wellThe history he s trying to relate is in no way compromised by this writing style In fact by using this style he takes an important tack that makes the book really sing By using that Victorian colonial adventure style he gets you in the heads f the Brits and Russinas who were in that day reading all The Maxx: Maxximized Vol. 3 of this rip and run super adventure stuff It s really hard to understand the mentalityf British soldiers in the late 19th Century Il cacciatore or even in WWI without recognizing that allf those guys grew up reading colonial adventure stories which were very much like the Wild West novels The Unscratchables of that day Think mid 40sWB cartoons if you re an Americanf a certain age They re so Therapy outf style now that it s hard for me to provide an example I keep thinking Karl May who was a German writer who wrote all kinds The Hug of thrilling Indian Jones type adventures set in locales that were exotic to a European the American Wild West India Africa Arabia cf Lawrence he read them too China and Central Asia Anyway I admire the abilityf an author to pull the reader back in to the minds The Resurrection Tree and Other Stories of their protagonists and their contemporaries Plus this style makes the book read like a cheap titillating novel This isne fast read considering the breadth Autostop con Buddha: Viaggio attraverso il Giappone of the workA bit about the contentf the
