Martyrs to hypochondria and general seediness, J. and his friends
George and Harris decide that a jaunt up the Thames would suit them to
a 'T'. But when they set off, they can hardly predict the troubles that
lie ahead with tow-ropes, unreliable weather-forecasts and tins of
pineapple chunks â€“ not to mention the devastation left in the wake of
J.'s small fox-terrier Montmorency.
Three Men in a Boat is a humorous book, written by the British author Jerome K. Jerome, about a two-week boating expedition on the River Thames. The book was originally supposed to be used as a serious travel guide but that gave way to the timeless humor as Jerome kept writing it. Jerome would later write Three Men on the Bummel, a sequel to this classic book.
