Three Men in a Boat

Three Men in a Boat Jerome K. Jerome




Three Men in a Boat





It would be unfair to say that any of three men were hypochondriacs: it was simply that they suffered from a constant malaise, consisting of every symptom but housemaid s knee. The only cure for it was a revitalizing river trip in an open boat.



Bearing frying pans, elusive toothbrushes, pies, lemonade and whisky, for medicinal purposes only, the three men and Montmorency the dog (whose ambition in life is to get in the way) embark on their hilarious adventures on the Thames. After considerable enjoyment and irratation - getting lost in the maze, arguing with some quarrelsome swans, falling in the river - the three men decide that being out of a boat seems a more inviting alternative.



Despite being over a century old, its sparkling insights into human - and canine - nature ensure that Three Men in a Boat is as fresh and invigorating today as when it was first published.
