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.

Rip roaring comedy

Brilliant rendering by Hugh Laurie. My best scene would be , where he explains how the stomach controls the brain.

Period Piece

Hugh Laurie sounding nothing like House! The feeling of life for the happy elite is seductive to imagine, although the author is clearly keeping a satirical point of view.
