The ​book was meant to be a serious travel guide recounting a river trip from Kingston to Oxford undertaken by three young men, but Jerome's rambling anecdotes and humorous take on travellers J, Harris and George – and J's feckless fox terrier, Montmorency – turned it into something far rarer: an honest account of male friendship.

This pompous, hapless and touching trio are very familiar; in fact, reading this, it feels as if the only difference between modern and Victorian men is the latters' interest in pipe smoking. Jerome's narrative meanders through such wildly varied topics as hypochondria, tents, girls' uselessness in a boat, playing the bagpipes and making an Irish stew as his trio grumble, drink, smoke and snooze on the river. Yes, the prose quality varies, but the pleasure you derive makes up for that. It's funny and gentle.

Reading it is like spending time with a favourite uncle whose anecdotes you'd happily listen to over and over again because it makes… (tovább)

Jerome K. Jerome: Three Men In a Boat

Magyarul nem biztos, hogy ajánlanám, az angol humort csak angolul lehet igazán értékelni! Nyelvgyakorlásra viszont kiváló, egyszerű a szövege és még szórakoztató is.

Jerome K. Jerome: Three Men In a Boat

Egyik első angol nyelvű könyvem volt. Elvileg megkínlódtam vele, de gyakorlatban ezt nem éreztem. Élvezet volt!

When Montmorency meets a cat the whole street knows about it; and there is enough bad language wasted in ten seconds to last an ordinary respectable man all his life, with care.

Married men have wives, and don't seem to want them; and young single fellows cry out that they can't get them. Poor people who can hardly keep themselves have eight hearty children. Rich old couples, with no one to leave their money to, die childless.

Montmorency's ambition in life, is to get in the way and be sworn at. If he can squirm in anywhere where he particularly is not wanted, and be a perfect nuisance, and make people mad, and have things thrown at his head, then he feels his day has not been wasted.

It was a lovely landscape. It was idyllic, poetical, and it inspired me. I felt good and noble. I felt I didn't want to be sinful and wicked anymore. I would come and live here, and never do any more wrong, and lead a blameless, beautiful life, and have silver hair when I got old, and all that sort of thing.

How good one feels when one is full – how satisfied with ourselves and with the world! People who have tried it, tell me that a clear conscience makes you very happy and contented; but a full stomach does the business quite as well, and is cheaper, and more easily obtained.
