Publisher's Summary

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.

A gorgeous, funny tale told by Hugh Laurie.

Jerome K Jerome's wonderfully funny tale of three men and a dog going on a river holiday is rendered perfectly by Hugh Laurie. He captures the deluded optimism, the ineptness and the trials of three friends who have scant idea of what they are doing. I could listen to this beloved classic over and over.

interesting

Great choice of narrator. Humorous in parts, a bit dreary in others. Glad a chose to listen to it rather than read the book.
