Three Men in a Boat (Three Men, #1) by Jerome K. Jerome

Into the Wild

Three Men in a Boat (Three Men, #1) Read Online Free - 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.

I loved this book so much. Timeless. I'm not a big fan of classics but this was different. Great story. Bonus points for having a dog. The bit with the pineapple tin was brillant too. Cant wait to read this again.

This book is a strange mix. Part of it is of a particular kind of obvious humour. Sort of like watching a very pompous-looking person talking loudly into their cell-phone and paying no attention to where they are going and therefore fails to notice the banana skin everyone else has been avoiding....

What a huge moron I was for not giving this book a chance. And now, I just can’t stop praising it. So here it goes… ‘Three Men in a Boat’ is an amusing account of three friends-Jerome(whom I’m in love with),Harris and George and of course their dog Montmorency; while on a little boating expedition...

Three young gentlemen, and I use that word, very loosely , are desperate to get away from the fast pace tensions, of every day, 19th Century, London life ( the horror !). And go someplace else, they should have stayed put, indeed. The men need a long rest, they're quite run down, but from what th...

Okay. Right from the beginning, it is a hilarious thing to read. This book was written in 1889, and it is still too funny. According to what I read, at first, it was going to be a travel guide, but that got lost among the humorous anecdotes that took over the whole book. I thank you, Jerome, for...

Updated in August, 2014 I lost count of the number of times I read this book. It was written in the late 19th century; it is still hilarious. The author attempted to write a travel guide on a Themes boat trip. At this, he failed miserably. In the book he switches the subject constantly telling som...

It's a book of comical anecdotes strung together to compile the history of a 2 week vacation of 3 men who rent a boat and go rowing on the Thames. Oh, and their dog, Montmorency, goes along. It is one comic episode after another and so ridiculous that it could be titled 3 stooges in a boat and I...

December 21, 2014 I love To Say Nothing of the Dog. Adore it enough to own two copies, a paperback for reading/ lending, and a hardcover for keepsies. Love it enough, in fact, to write a ridiculous review comparing it to a Beethoven symphony (my review). Willis dedicated her...
