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 - not to mention the devastation left in the wake of J.'s small fox-terrier Montmorency. "Three Men in a Boat" was an instant success when it appeared in 1889, and, with its benign escapism, authorial discursions and wonderful evocation of the late-Victorian 'clerking classes', it hilariously captured the spirit of its age. In his introduction, Jeremy Lewis examines Jerome K. Jerome's life and times, and the changing world of Victorian England he depicts - from the rise of a new mass-culture of tabloids and bestselling novels to crazes for daytripping and bicycling.

    In assoluto la cosa più noiosa mai prodotta in Inghilterra.
    Ironico? Umoristico? Spiritoso? Divertente? Ma dove?
    Quando raccontano di fare i dispetti alle barche a vapore restando al centro del fiume e quando poi, trainati da una barca a vapore, si lamentano di chi fa i dispetti restando al centro del fiume?
    AHAHAHAHA. No.
    Tempo perso.

    La gita in barca dei tre uomini, e del cane, diventa l'occasione per raccontare degli aneddoti e alcune osservazioni sulle cose comuni, ciò che capita nella vita di tutti i giorni. Alcune sono divertenti, altre lasciano indiffenti.
