Well I read this book because it was part of my school syllabus But that doesn t mean that I didn t read it without any interest I couldn t help but be interested in this smashing novel It s got a tinge of nice old nostalgic era of the 20th century but that is simply no reason to let you down It s great book full of comedy There are hits where it gets a little boring because of historical descriptions about some locations You might need to sit with a dictionary because there are a lot of words that aren t used much in the modern day But it s immensely fun to read this book A happy start although the characters are an awful lot unorganised and a happy ending And don t forget the dog It s all about the dog First off, I really enjoyed this book But it really isn t that funny It s mildly amusing at best, not laugh out loud funny like so many of the reviews here suggest It is however, an extremely enjoyable little read, being half travel guide half comedy, with some amusing scenes and anecdotes interspersed with historical accounts It was actually originally intended to be a travel guide interspersed with personal anecdotes but when he started writing he turned it into a novel I live on the Thames and it did inspire me to visit some of the places mentioned such as Sonning which is described as one of the most beautiful spots on the Thames and just up the road from me in Reading which is described as the worst place on the Thames In fact when they arrive in Reading a body is floating in the river Despite this I would recommend this book as it s short, entertaining and will inspire you take a holiday. I giggled and cackled my way through this book ,often with members of the public staring at me wearing expressions of both pity a d alarm, for I was, by my behaviour, evidently afflicted by some peculiar ailment laughing whilst reading being an uncommon and strange sport.The author gently and skilfully mixes delicate and poignant prose with such vivid description of outrageous lunacy that one s breath is stolen actually that could be due to Montncy s thievery or indeed, laughter in the extreme.Unreservedly recommend everyone should read this account. On there journey up the Thames the Three Men and their dog have ludicrous adventures during almost the whole journey but they also encounter history and an often lovely riverscape It is an epic journey, but they survive in spite of their not inconsiderable incompetence But there are always delicious asides which are so typical of the author s style The saga belongs to that golden era before the Great War an era which was not entirely mythical. Not much what I would call comedy Merely observations of the middle classes doing their best to have leisure time in the late 1800 s The phrase mad is used a lot one assumes that the phrase these days would be doing our heads in 3 4 of the way through it now and getting a little bored However, A family man hanging a picture Uncle Podger is a gently funny belly laugh to all those that struggle to put a shelf up The rest is a rambling farce. Its sort of hard to describe the plot of this book It doesn t really have one exactly, it s a collection of humourous observations and funny anecdotes As others have noted the humour has aged very well and much of it feels quite modern Just like the trip itself it does feel sort of pointless but then not everything has to have one I suppose. One of my favourite books of all time Full of humour and charming anecdotes from a bygone age Timeless though as so many of the places on the route these friends took up the Thames are little changed and in my own small way encouraged by this book I have set about exploring parts of the river Like many good books this is one where you can make yourself part of the story. well, said Harris, reaching his hand out of his glass, we have had a pleasant trip, and my hearty thanks for it to old Father Thames but I think we did well to chuck it when we did Here s to Three Men well out of a Boat Three Men In A Boat Jerome K JeromeYear of Publication 1889Genre Humour fictionPlot Story of three overworked friends who decide to holiday boating from Kingston to Oxford and back to Kingston on the river Thames.George,Harris and Jerome with their dog hired a boat and started their two week journey in which they faced numerous incidents which were challenging but hilarious and breath taking with the sudden disappearance and reappearance of Harris Their journey in which they exchanged their past experiences,funny incidents of their friends and friends of friends.My review There is so much to talk about this book This book has been ranked 2 in the 50 funniest books ever written All 4 characters and their attitude is so relatable and are so wonderfully narrated.It s part comic and part travelogue, which is full of funny stories Anecdotes in the book are so akin that you may imagine yourself in that particular situation and end up laughing multiple times in a day Story line is very simple but very intriguing because of the small stories that they exchanged from time to time.One of the best moment is hypothetical conversation between their dog and a stray cat.Few highlights from the book which I found very hilarious.Chapter 3 Uncle Podger tries to put picture on the wall.Chapter 5 The unreliable weather forecasts.Chapter 8 When Harris sings a comic song and when 2 young men fooled everybody in a high class party.Chapter 10 George and Harris got entangled in the canvas and struggles for freedom.Chapter 13 Sudden and strange disappearance of Harris and a pie.A hypothetical conversation of their dog and a stray cat.Chapter 17 Trout story by George and Harris All I can say is that..just go for this book You will enjoy it, cherish it and surprise yourself thinking there are books like these which exist too.5 5 I purchased this e book recently and downloaded it to both my kindle book and kindle tablet Only to discover that it was unreadable due to garbled text, something isn t right Given that this version of a very good book is No longer available on they are aware of the problem I contacted customer services to advise them of my problem a week ago but have had no reply from them not had my money been refunded.
