Audible Editor Reviews

Three Men on the Bummel reintroduces audiences to the three humorous friends from Jerome K. Jerome's earlier book, Three Men in a Boat. In this sequel, the boat is replaced with bicycles as the three men try, with many comical mishaps and misunderstandings, to navigate the German Black Forest. Grammy-nominated performer, David Case, handles the production of this audiobook, and with his sarcastic and sly delivery, the comedy hits full force. Despite having been written over 100 years ago, Jerome K. Jerome's comic tale, with help from the energetic performance of Case, remains one of the favorite English comeic novels.

Publisher's Summary

When three late-Victorian gentlemen escape from their claustrophobic suburban life to go on a cycling tour in the Black Forest of Germany, their trip turns into a comic expedition.

Many of their humorous adventures and mishaps relate to the nuances in language and customs; one attempts to board a train unconventionally to avoid German procedures; when riding the Bummel in Dresden one butts and rolls into German passengers who, being familiar with the route know how to brace themselves and don't see the humor, "the dull lot"; another tries to buy his aunt a cushion and gets angry after he pays for it because he gets only a kiss from a young girl instead. Three Men on the Bummel is one of the most popular classics in English comic fiction.

    "Three Men on the Bummel"

    Absolutely amazing. And if you liked it, read Three Men in a Boat. That's much better still. There is no use my praising it anymore. Jerome K. Jerome is perhaps the greatest writer of comedy of all time, and this goes without question for anyone who knows him. I have read many many writers of comedy, and trust me when I say he is among the greatest writers of all time. In his style he is king. But three men in a boat's better.

    "This could have been written last year !"

    Its true, people never change.

    I have a lot of dealing with German people through business, and if you would not have told me the author, I would have assumed this book was written last year - not last century. The book is a pleasure to experience purely because of the authors excellent style and many diversions in the book. I have heard many say its a poor sequel to the 3 men on a boat, I'm having none of it. Its far better.

    On the downside I think the narrator could have been more upbeat and put more effort into the characters. It was difficult to distinguish between Harris and George until the narrator told us who was speaking - but this was a minor point as the story outshone this.
