A Very Short Review of Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome
This story relates the mild misadventures of three middle-class men who have decided to spend a fortnight boating on the Thames. The book has no heroes or villains. It is not ‘action packed.’ There is no explicit sex or violence (although they do find a dead girl at one point, but she’s just floating by minding her own business, and her appearance does not delay them long).
You can think of it as a Victorian English travelogue with commentary about the places they pass and the things they observe along the way. I found it delightful. It is witty, lighthearted, and simply pleasure to relax with for a quiet evening’s read.
I highly recommend it.
