Publisher's Summary

It could have been an idyllic, relaxing trip down the Thames, if George hadn't insisted on camping, if someone had remembered a can-opener, and if Harris had steered clear of those old men and their fishing lines. Join in the comedy of a mishap-filled boat trip with 3 buddies and their dog. The journey may not be a smooth one, but it is sure to be filled with hilarity.

Just awful sound quality

This cult classic seemed like a lot of fun but eventually I gave up because it was nearly impossible to make out the words through the horrible distortion of the low-quality recording. Hope this gets an upgrade eventually.

Very Bad Quality Recording

I want to read this book, and it seems like it would be ideal to listen to as an audio book. But this recording is of such poor quality that I haven't been able to stand listening to it. I've tried to start it several times, but the worble and wow and flutter make me rip the earphones out of my ears in disgust. I hope Audible gets a better version.

Classic British humor

This book has a very dry wit. The veneer of Victorian sensibility masks a deft hand at, effectively, slapstick humor. The humor doesn't jump out at you, it is more a matter of sitting back, enjoying the boat ride, and watching the silliness grow.
