Hugh Laurie is the perfect reader for an audio edition of this book...but I think that edition might have been abridged 😕 Nevertheless, I thought this was light and fun, and I chuckled aloud a fair bit. Would read again in print.

Sorry @SerialReader #unpopularopinion I didn't think this was funny at all and I was quite a bit bored. I guess I just don't understand old fashioned humor. #whoknows 🤷🤷 #15 #2019

sophierayton Me too. I have friends who love this book and I'm like "seriously?!" Just goes to show there's a book for everyone and not all books are for all people. 11mo

Aimeesue @jillrhudy It is! And the chapter headings of To Say Nothing of the Dog are modeled on the ones from Three Men in a Boat. 😁 1y

What a gem @SerialReader !

This tale of 3 friends and a dog boating on the Thames is hilarious. Witty, even laugh-out-loud at times, the series of vignettes is like an 1880s Seinfeld. There are flights of poetry, and bits that are solemn, but overall it is very funny travelogue. It is amazing how timeless it reads. Just by updating some of the language and references, this could be a contemporary work!

SerialReader Totally agreed! I started this a few days ago. Absolutely lovely so far. 2y
Chelsey I adore this book! 2y
mabell @SerialReader @Chelsey I expected "humor," but it turned out to be insightful and VERY funny. Loved it! 2y

A sunny afternoon in the garden was theperfect moment to finish this gentle comedy of mishaps, anecdotes and travel commentary down the Thames in late 1880's. So sees me finish my 11th book in my #LitsyClassics journey with letter J.
Not totally on track so i may have to step up the pace from july- dec despite there being some chunksters left to go.

It is not that I object to the work, mind you; I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours. I love to keep it by me: the idea of getting rid of it nearly breaks my heart. #ThreeMenInABoat #JeromeKJerome

Escape from the real world with dry British humor. Perfect palate cleanser after highly charged fiction or nonfiction. Laugh out loud with the predicaments these men slam up against undertaking a boat trip. Fast, short read

mabell I'm reading this now - I love it! 2y

It is so cold here in New Orleans, I thought I'd share an illustration from my Folio edition of "Three Men." I'd rather be ⛵ on the Thames in Summer. #foliofans

Is anyone familiar with Gutenberg.org? How do YOU use it? Any tips for audio? I haven't found how to stop & resume play. Downloading text is not a problem. So as not to interfere with #secretsantagoespostal I'm trying to read odd books of those I own.

Redwritinghood No clue. What is it for? 2y

I‘m never quite sure if my interpretation of “cult classic” is the same as everyone else‘s, but here are five that I‘ve read that I feel fall into that category.
What are your thoughts, Littens? Feel free to join in & post yours!
Thanks for the tag, @sprainedbrain 😊

sprainedbrain Great choices! I still need to read the top two... 2y
Mamashep Not familiar with the top two, but the bottom row definitely qualifies, especially the 2nd & 3rd books in that row! 2y
Ange44 Great choices! I love House of Leaves. ❤️ 2y
Coleen @Ange44 @Mamashep I accidentally lied. House of Leaves is the one of the five that I‘ve not yet read. It‘s been sitting on my shelves for quite a long time now & I just haven‘t taken the plunge. But from what I‘ve heard, it qualifies. 😉 (edited) 2y
Mamashep It definitely qualifies! My son read and loved it but it's a giant challenge to read. 2y

Frequently hilarious. Quite funny at times. Somewhat droll on occasion. A bit dull periodically. Overall a 4 star rating for me. 5 stars for the beginning. I skimmed a few passages that I found tedious, but enjoyed this on the whole.

My current read put me in hysterics starting with chapter one. Written in the late 1800's, it's a travelouge of 3 Victorian men (and a dog) taking a holiday traveling up the Thames to escape their ills. Fun, British humor. It's a bit dated but I think it holds up well more than 100 years later. This is a great break for me as a wend my way through some non-fiction reads + my next read will be Connie Willis's book: To Say Nothing of the Dog. 😊

Melissa_J I totally want to read this one. 2y

This book was supposed to be The Story of the Thames, a travel guide book, but somehow turned out as a humorous account of three friends on a boating trip.
This is my cool Pulp Classic edition, look at the dog's face!

yoavshai This is one of my all time favorite books. When done, don't miss the author's next adventures in Three men on the Bummel. Some would say it is even funnier 3y

My #SerialReaderTBR list is getting a little ridiculous. I'd go bankrupt running a bookstore - have to buy every other book I saw! What's your Read Later list look like?

DragonSadhana Mine is also pretty long! House of Seven Gables, Phantastes, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, The Yellow Wallpaper, Uncle Tom's Cabin, The Song of the Lark, The Book of Dragons, just to name a few! It's a great app!!! 3y

This may be one of the funniest books I've ever read. It was my "purse" book because it's so small but trying to read it in public is comical because I couldn't stifle my laughter. Some parts were a little slow toward the end, but this was just hilarious! Read this book!

dairine AGREED! This demands a re-read, so I can record all those quotes this time around--presumably I won't laugh as HARD the second time. SO GOOD. (And I agree, slow in some spots.) 4y
