Even when the sailing is smooth, the stories never stop in Jerome K. Jerome's comic novel. Plaster fishes, dead water rats, near-death escapes, and many, many jocose anecdotes create a colorful narrative of holiday life on the river. For once three hypochondriacs self-diagnose themselves as "clearly overworked", the rest practically writes itself!

A Classic, Funny Tale
If you could sum up Three Men in a Boat [Classic Tales Edition] in three words, what would they be?
Everything Goes Wrong
Who was your favorite character and why?
You get to be the most familiar with "J", the one telling the story. As such, he became my favorite. I felt the other two were there just to provide him with partners in this misadventure.
Which character – as performed by B. J. Harrison – was your favorite?
Jerome, or "J", the one telling the story.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There were numerous moments in this book that had me laughing out loud.
Any additional comments?
The antics of the three young men and the dog can be downright hilarious as just about everything goes wrong. Along the way they also share stories about things that happened to family, friends or friends of friends. The story add even more amusing dimensions to this funny tale.
If you are looking for a fairly short funny classic, this one is for you.
