Book Review: Three Men in a Boat

Three Men in a Boat book cover
Three Men in a Boat
Jerome K. Jerome
1889
★★★★☆

If P. G. Wode­house had writ­ten a trav­el­ogue, it would have been Three Men in a Boat. Jerome does give some his­tory of the towns along the Thames, and waxes elo­quent about the river two or three times, but the main draw here is the hu­mor. The dry, British, tongue-in-cheek hu­mor holds up re­mark­ably well af­ter 125 years.
