So begin the hilarious misadventures of a merry, but scandalously lazy band of well-to-do young men -- and a plucky and rather world-weary fox terrier named Montmorency -- on an idyllic cruise along the River Thames. Feeling seedy, muses one of them dreamily, "What we want is rest". What they find instead is one hapless catastrophe after another. Soggy weather, humiliating dunkings, the irritating behavior of small boats, and the "contrariness of teakettles" are just a few of the barbarisms our genteel heroes are forced to endure. But which a delighted reader can only sing, Hooray!
First published in 1889, Three Men in a Boat was an instant success, and Jerome has been compared to comic master P. G. Wodehouse.
There has not been any book which is so simple, crisp and humorous ever written. This book is so very funny and written with so much honesty. Jerome K Jerome was one of best writers ever and is sadly not very well renowned. It is pity that present day Indian authors who write scrap each time they take pen are so praised.
The science fiction novel is the most entertaining novel based on a trip of Jerome and his friends George, Harris. The book was published in 1886 but loved by all till date. The story centers on the three friends who are exhausted with busy life of London. They plan to go out for a week’s vacation. They decide to go on an Idyllic Cruise along London Thames River. They pack their food, clothes & the fictional dog, Montmorency, in a small boat and travel the country along the Thames. The three enjoy their journey a lot and also learn lessons. The story presents the events that happened during the trip truthfully and honestly. The book has hilarious comedy also. The story is narrated by Jerome K Jerome, the author. Jerome has written this book in a self-deprecating, and highly satiric tone. Jerome's style is masterful, and he uses it to create a strong sense of good humour. There are funny situations that are presented cleverly. Three Men in a Boat is an honest account of honest feelings which Jerome and his friends doubtless had. This is really one of the best books I re-read recently.
