Three Men, George, Harris, Jerome of the Merry & Lazy Variety of well-to-do Young men of the Victorian Era feel so depressed with their routine & assumed illness (Munchausen Syndrome) that they decide to go on an Idyllic Cruise along London Thames River for a fortnight, in an equally depressing soggy weather. They pack their food, clothes & the fictional dog, Montmorency, in a small boat. They travel the Country along the Thames. Right from the word ’go’, nothing goes right for them. This book narrates what all they are forced to encounter & endure in their jolly boat ride.

Anyone who has ever taken a tent camping trip with friends, and especially with a boat will immediately relate to this book. Really anyone can relate to this book. Full of ridiculous, frustrating, exhausting situations and yet the friends manage to have their fun. It is sort of a Monty Python of the late 19th century.
Ok, it takes a little getting used to the outdated wordage (is that a word?), but its definitely worth it. I've never laughed out loud reading a book except for this. I can relate to so many of the funny stories in it, and that's amazing considering how old it is! Read it, read it, read it!
