Martyrs to hypochondria and general seediness, J. and his friends George and Harris decide that a jaunt up the Thames would suit them just fine. 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 (To Say Nothing of the Dog) 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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jan Strnad | 2/15/2014

    " This book has some of the funniest writing I've ever encountered in literature. Jerome may have been writing in the early 19th century, but his sense of humor is right up there with P. G. Wodehouse, James Thurber and Dave Barry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Susan Denney | 2/11/2014

    " Such a cute book. Charming tongue-in-cheek understated British humor mixed in with glorious descriptions of boating on the Thames. And I loved Montmorency's meeting with a cat. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Angela Helm | 2/4/2014

    " If you have a great British accent, then read this book. Otherwise it is best to get it on tape. A very funny at witty book, it will have you laughing all the way through. A great book! "

    " I enjoyed this, but the novel it inspired, "To Say Nothing of the Dog" is far superior in my estimate. "
