A humorous read, available as a free Kindle download on Amazon. But you don't need to read 100 pages to find out that Montmorency is a dog. Only 10-20 pages in the author mentions that Montmorency came to life in the form of a fox terrier.

It's the part immediately after where he goes to see his doctor and the doctor writes him a prescription for beef dinners, ale, lots of exercise, and to stop filling his head with nonsense that he doesn't understand that makes that chapter.

Don't worry I literally did the same thing in thinking Montmorency was a person. It wasn't until he started chasing cats that I twigged.

Jerome's Three Men in a Boat was a novel inspired by his honeymoon boat trip along Great Britain's River Thames. The book is part travel guide, part historical account from a humorous angle

It may seem to drag a little compared to modern action fiction but it is worth the journey.

This book though meant to be a travelogue of sorts ended up, inexplicable as one of the most loved funny stories of all time.

Jerome K. Jerome hits the nail on the head with 'Three Men In A Boat' and brings out British absurdities and traditions in a comic way.

very hilarious n teaches you a lesson in a healthy comic way... the wittiness in the writing style keeps a constant smile on your face... the ridiculous situations that they land on described with british humor makes u giggle out loud !!

If you haven't read To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis, do it. Read it now! It's so hilarious and awesome and has time travel. Need I say more? XD

Montmorency is deliberately introduced as a person (oh us Brits and our 'Ironic' 'Humour') so *everyone* is misled at the beginning. Also the story of the cheese makes me laugh just thinking about it. The punting section has also happened to everyone I know who has attempted it.

Oh man I've definitely had one of those days, namely when I read Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets for the first time, and kept imagining Dobby as a pillow, simply because he was introduced as being inside a pillow case... Yeah I wasn't the brightest kid :P

I did the same thing with Augustus Waters in The Fault in Our Stars--it was made expressly clear that he had dark brown hair, but I imagine him blonde. Like, I had to read it through a few times before I even noticed that was in there.

I love this book, and I love how you mixed up Montmorency! I just read the sequel, Three Men on a Bummel, which is equally hilarious - maybe even better.
elisabettebarczak - 8 years ago
It has always been one of my favorite books :) I wish that more people knew just how humorous some classic books can be .~And you seem lovely.

haha, I had the same problem with the dog! I realized what it was just a few hours before watching your video, as I'm reading the book right now. I've just gotten to the bit about bagpipes I think you're referring to. I agree on it being slow sometimes, but I found myself laughing in public more than once while reading it...

Sanne, I completely sympathize. I have done that so many times. When I read Twilight, I was convinced that Emmett was a girl for about 50 pages.

You should make a video on some books to ask for for the holidays (: all of the books that you review and show on your channel are quite fabulous reads, and I think you'd be a good person to get an opinion from about some great books (: just a suggestion.. (:

This is definitely on my reading list! This is second time I've herd about Three Men in a Boat recommended this year. How would you compare it to P. G. Wodehouse? Because it sounded very similar to what he wrote.

I've got a worse one. I didn't know that David Sedaris books were essays about his life and the first one I read, for a few essays, I thought he was writing from the point of view of a woman.

I'm trying to figure out which book to take overseas for the course of my travels, something like young adult fiction, but not such an easy read, any recommendations?
Noctuaminerva - 8 years ago
I listened to this book on an audio cassette, and I don't think I've ever laughed so much! The voices made it even better. And yes, it reminded me of The Importance of Being Earnest too! Oh man, cracking up just thinking about it.
