Three Men in a Boat
What began as three innocent friends ruminating on remedies for ailments – and an author trying to write a travel guide – turned into a timeless piece of British literary comedy, with the guide element now only a footnote to the humour. The trio of George, Harris and Jerome – who are based on the author and his two pals – head west up the Thames with their dog Montmorency, equipped with just a tent, a boat and plenty of anecdotes. An almost permanent resident in ‘Funniest Books of All Time’ lists, Jerome K. Jerome’s finest work is a cultural touchstone that simply must be read.
- Hilarious summer read
- 100 years old and ageing like a fine wine
- Peepshow meets P.G. Wodehouse
