Timeless. Bonus points for having a dog.
This book is a strange mix. Part of it is of a particular kind of obvious humour. Sort of like watching a very pompous-looking person talking loudly into their cell-phone and paying no attention to where they are going and therefore fails to notice the banana skin everyone else has been avoiding.

Three young gentlemen and I use that word very loosely are desperate to get away from the fast pace tensions of every day 19th Century London life ( the horror !). And go someplace else, they should have stayed put indeed. The men need a long rest, they're quite run down but from what though ? The b Leggi tutto
3.5 stars Digressive in style, meandering and episodic at worst, but bloody hilarious at the most awkward of moments! 19th century Victorian England — Witness three dunderheads (mis)adventurers/gentlemen/hypochondriacs, namely J., George, William Harris and a ferocious fox-terrier named Montmorency a Leggi tutto
What a brilliant book! If you are looking to the perfect follow up to The Pickwick Papers this is your genre. See what J (the narrator), George (the man with the orange red blazer), Harris and not to be forgotten Montmorency (the dog) experience on their picnic, camping and boat trip on the River Th Leggi tutto

The author attempted to write a travel guide on a Themes boat trip. At this, he failed miserably. In the book he switches the subject constantly telling somewh Leggi tutto
Okay. Right from the beginning, it is a hilarious thing to read. This book was written in 1889, and it is still too funny. According to what I read, at first, it was going to be a travel guide, but that got lost among the humorous anecdotes that took over the whole book. I thank you, Jerome, for tha Leggi tutto

What a quaint little book! I had no idea this existed. But I'm definitely glad I could rectify that now. The story is that of three friends, elderly gentlemen, who decide to journey up the Thames in a little boat together with the dog one of them owns. The preparations for the trip are already very en Leggi tutto
