Three Man in a Boat

Three Men In A Boat (to say nothing of the dog)

The preface of Jerome Klapka Jerome’s delightful little book begins with ‘The chief beauty of this book lies not so much in its literary style…as in its simple truthfulness…George and Harris and Montmorency are…things of flesh and blood – especially George, who weighs about twelve stone.’ These lines not only describe the book perfectly, but also outline what a reader can expect from it.
