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.

Listener Opinions

    " I don't like comedy books and this 'classic' was no exception. However I can recommend Jerome K. Jerome's non-fiction; notably 'On the Art of Making Up One's Mind'. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline | 6/17/2011

    " I really enjoyed it. The book is timeless, gives a slight historical account as well as humorous anecdotes. Really quite funny. "

    " After starting off brilliantly, the book began to lose steam about 100 pages in. I don't know if it needed to be so long, even though it wasn't a long book, 169 pages. However, it was an enjoyable read and glad that I finally broke down and read it. "

    " Dated, obviously. The narrator is pretty dense, which was amusing initially, but didnt wear that well. Liked the bit with the dog at the end. "

    " HILARIOUS. Plus, I have never liked unreliable narrators as much as I do here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon A. | 6/3/2011

    " This was an absolute delight; a classic British story I'd never even heard of before, but boy am I glad I found it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 5/28/2011

    " After all these years, still hilarious. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jitske | 5/25/2011

    " Three men in a boat gives us a witty account of a boating holiday on the Thames between Kingston and Oxford. Yup... a good book can have that simple a story line. It is probably the funniest book I ever read, a true classic, funny now as ever. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tuck | 5/24/2011

    " if mark twain went on a camping trip on the Thames, he'd of written this? "

    " I loved Jerome's sense of humor. I also loved the "once-upon-a-timeyfied" quality. Overall though Montmorency was my most very favorite part of this book. I could have used a little more of him. "
