Three Men in a Boat (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.61

Three Men in a Boat is a classic novel by Jerome K. Jerome describing a boating holiday on the Thames between Kingston and Oxford.

Summary of the Book

Three young men get bored of their routine lives, and convince themselves that they have been overworked and are suffering from some manner of illness. After considering a country escape and a sea trip, they decide to settle for a boating trip, disillusioned with the ocean after Jerome’s account of the mishaps his brother-in-law and a friend suffered. They choose the Thames as the marvellous river for their trip, and decide to sail from Kingston to Oxford. Jerome, George and Harris are joined in this adventure by a fox terrier named Montmorency. They plan to camp on the trip despite Jerome’s stories about his previous experiences with tents and camping stoves. What follows is a hilarious account about everything they undergo, from the unreliability of barometers to forecast the weather, to the impossible act of learning to play the Scottish bagpipes. Circumstantial and slapstick comedy come together in this classic work of comedy, part memoir and part fiction, by Jerome K. Jerome.

About Jerome K. Jerome

Jerome K. Jerome was an English writer. Two of his other works are Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow and Second Thoughts of an Idle Fellow.

The mishaps of Jerome and his friends continues in Three Men on the Bummel.

Three Men in a Boat was adapted into several major motion pictures, including a made-for-television version by the BBC in 1975, starring Tim Curry and Stephen Moore.

Good fun book

I found the book really humorous and a good book to read while traveling in a bus or train. I even gave my neighbour a jolt a couplke of times when I sudddenly burst out laughing.

A book really worth reading and once it is read, you will want to read it over and over again.

Do read it..

A good old witty , hilarious ,easy read book....
just don't read in a place where you have people around, you might be looked as a lunatic laughing out loud.
The way in which the book is written is as naive as a children story book and it doesn't preaches any philosophy of any kind. It is just a plain read of three men and a dog's itinerary on Thames in a boat .The level of details and wittiness of day to day situation astonishes me and i think everyone should give it a try.

Not exactly a story

I bought this book after reading good reviews on Flipkart and as I love reading humor, I thought I must read it.

Its a good read. However, this is not exactly a story but rather it has funny incidents from old memories. So, the narration goes back and forth from current incident to old memory. Nevertheless, there are some boring moments. But the funny ones just light you up and I beleive that you laugh out loud, then the author is successful in conveying exactly what we wanted to. So, this book did have those funny moments. But, somehow as there is no story, there isnt exactly looking forw...

So, this book did have those funny moments. But, somehow as there is no story, there isnt exactly looking forward to the next chapter.

So, if you not the type of person who are looking for a page turner, then go ahead and buy it. It has some light moments but its more like a text book read.

Read this if you fly HIGH

I was recommended this book by a friend in college, and even though I did not read it through, we did have a lot of sessions when one in the group used to read out his favorite part, mostly with a few beers ...

Please do not read this book when high ... you might never stop laughing :P :P

Excellent book...

This is one of the most humorous books I have ever read. It was written along time ago, so the writing style may seem a bit odd. But if you can get past the first few pages, it is an excellent read and the jokes are as funny as ever.
The delivery from Flipkart was good as usual. This book is definitely recommended. Certainly after a long and hard day a few pages of this book can make you feel lighthearted again.

lovely book..must read

Utterly delightful from,the beginning to the end. I loved the digressions, the tales about friends and friends-of friends. If you're looking a book with some serious plot..let alone serious, just plot..this is not the book for you, but if you'd like a leisurely journey down the tm Thames and rest...
