the absolute funniest book I have ever heard...

This is now one of my favorite books of all time! I even convinced my wife to read it and now we quote lines from it. I don't think that I have ever laughed so hard while listening to an audiobook. It's uncanny how a book written so long ago can still apply to today. This is a must read for those who could use a good laugh.

Dry and Hilarious

The first time I became aware of "Three Men In A Boat" was in the late seventies or the early eighties when I saw a much-shortened film version which included in it's cast Tim Curry and Michael Palin. I do remember it was very funny. I forgot about it though until I heard part of this audio version on satellite radio. I had to hear the whole thing and I was glad I purchased a copy from Audible. It must be one of the funniest novels ever written with it's dry "English" humor set against the absurd and exagerrated scenarios and the "over-the-top, wild opinions. There is also a true sense of love of the river Thames and of English history.
