Three Men In A Boat | [Jerome K Jerome]

Three Men In A Boat

Martyrs to hypochondria and general seediness, J. and his friends George and Harris decide that a jaunt up the Thames would suit them to a ‘T’. But when they set off, they can hardly predict the troubles that lie ahead with tow-ropes, unreliable weather-forecasts and tins of pineapple chunks – not to mention the devastation left in the wake of J.’s small fox-terrier Montmorency.

Publisher's Summary

Martyrs to hypochondria and general seediness, J. and his friends George and Harris decide that a jaunt up the Thames would suit them to a ‘T’. But when they set off, they can hardly predict the troubles that lie ahead with tow-ropes, unreliable weather-forecasts and tins of pineapple chunks – not to mention the devastation left in the wake of J.’s small fox-terrier Montmorency.

Three Men in a Boat was an instant success when it appeared in 1889, and, with its benign escapism, authorial discursions and wonderful evocation of the late-Victorian ‘clerking classes’, it hilariously captured the spirit of its age.

    "Period Piece"

    Hugh Laurie sounding nothing like House! The feeling of life for the happy elite is seductive to imagine, although the author is clearly keeping a satirical point of view.

    Story
    "A trip along the Thames with Hugh Laurie"

    I never read this book before but have obviously heard about it so when I saw Hugh Laurie was the narrator I thought I don't have any excuse not to listen to this. I am glad I did. It's a wonderful plunge in a bygone society where three hypochondriacs and a dog go on a trip on the Thames. Jerome K Jerome really describes the scenery very well and it gives you an insight into what gentlemen used to get up to. Hugh Laurie is wonderful as always and the perfect person to read this book with his Cambridge accent. Enjoyed it immensly.
