Three Men in a Boat: (To Say Nothing of the Dog) | [Jerome K. Jerome]

Three Men in a Boat: (To Say Nothing of the Dog)

After his final trip up the river Thames with his three companions - - Harris, George, and Montmorency the dog - - Jerome K. Jerome sat down to write his proposed book, The Story of the Thames. But before he could tackle the work in the serious manner intended, his humor took over and gave birth to a masterpiece of unquenchable comedy. This is a classic of English humor, justifiably loved around the world.

Publisher's Summary

If you've never read anything by Jerome K. Jerome, you'd be well advised to heed this warning by the Glasgow Herald: "It would be dangerous to [listen to] this book in any place - - say a full railway compartment - - where the reader was not at perfect liberty to laugh as loudly and as long as he chose." The passage of time has not altered that verdict. Here is a perfect picture of those lazy summer days "messing about in boats."

After his final trip up the river Thames with his three companions - - Harris, George, and Montmorency the dog - - Jerome K. Jerome sat down to write his proposed book, The Story of the Thames. But before he could tackle the work in the serious manner intended, his humor took over and gave birth to a masterpiece of unquenchable comedy. This is a classic of English humor, justifiably loved around the world.

    "A Classic for a Reason"

    This is one of those books that you find authors referring to in the oddest places. After reading... or rather listen to...Connie Willis' "to Say nothing of the Dog" I was excited to see this in Audible. Now I will have to go back and re-listen to Willis's book.

    The humor is so dry and so very British. You can see the the influence of this book on so many of the great British humorists of the modern day.

    The author occasionally drifts in his descriptions but you will still want to reserve a seat on a boat on the Thames. A delightful listen to escape the commute.

    "An absolute gem of a book!"

    When I first saw this book, it came with the advice that one should not read it if one were in a place where sudden fits of uncontrollable laughter were frowned upon. What good advice that was. The story is an absolute stitch and the narrator perfect for it. I most heartily recommend it.

    "what charm and fun"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Three Men in a Boat to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    What about Frederick Davidson’s performance did you like?

    His accents and different intonation for separate characters are delightful.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, almost. I knew I couldn't do that entirely, but it would have been my preference


    Any additional comments?

    Print version is engaging but the Audible version captured more of the humor

    "Really delightful"

    Very, very funny in a classic British fashion and read in a way that beautifully showcases the humor. It's remarkable how well it's aged.
