    Here is one of the greatest English comic novels read by incontrovertible king of English comic audiobook readers, Martin Jarvis. Three men, worried about their health and in search of different experiences, set off 'up the river' in a boat. Jerome's delightful novel, dating from 1900, paints a vivid picture of innocent fun.

    James says: "Dry and Hilarious"
    "just a gem!"
    Overall

    had first listened to this wonderful book in a distracted manner... only realizing how great it was toward the end ... so i listened to it again "straight away", as the Brits would say~
    although the references to "the bustle of the 19th century" sound quaint, it really brings home how "the more things change, the more they stay the same"... Jerome's witty stories illustrating human nature are so funny and so right on, i laughed out loud. the historical notes along their travelogue down the Thames are also wonderful, as the 3 young men take a boat outing one summer. just a wonderful treat~ i recommend it highly! (it does help to understand British English).
