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

the best audio version, makes me hoot with laughter every time I hear it. 10/10 on all accounts.
I never read this book before but have obviously heard about it so when I saw Hugh Laurie was the narrator I thought I don't have any excuse not to listen to this. I am glad I did. It's a wonderful plunge in a bygone society where three hypochondriacs and a dog go on a trip on the Thames. Jerome K Jerome really describes the scenery very well and it gives you an insight into what gentlemen used to get up to. Hugh Laurie is wonderful as always and the perfect person to read this book with his Cambridge accent. Enjoyed it immensly.
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.
Great choice of narrator. Humorous in parts, a bit dreary in others. Glad a chose to listen to it rather than read the book.
