Pretty interesting to see how the area has been of interest for such a long time. The Darkest Jungle however, never rises to the story, fails to transport the reader's imagination into the jungle and never elicits suspense nor sympathy for any of the many characters. This is not a well written book, and worse, it is very poorly constructed.

The Jungle Book is one of the works for which Rudyard Kipling is best remembered. The Jungle Book falls in line with works like Flatland and Alice in Wonderland (which offer satire and political commentary underneath the genre title of children's literature).

Likewise, the stories in The Jungle Book are written to be enjoyed by adults as well as children—with a depth of meaning and symbolism.

While the CGI animals and jungle settings in the trailer are certainly reminiscent of Favreau's Jungle Book, the color scheme and general atmosphere is far more threatening and ominous by comparison.
