Three Men in a Boat
(To Say Nothing of the Dog)
Narrated by Martin Jarvis
By Jerome K. Jerome

Three Men in a Boat was written more than a hundred years ago, but it is funnier than the vast majority of modern comic fiction.

"Three Men in a Boat" is the story of three Englishman who pile into a boat with food, clothes, and a fox terrier named Montmorency and set off on the Thames to see the English countryside. "Three Men in a Boat" is a first-class comic masterpiece. As the three well-to-do upper class gentleman set out on their excursion they are beset by a series of comic mishaps. Jerome K. Jerome masterfully weaves a tale that is a hilarious critique of the self-centered behavior of the English upper classes so typical of Victorian England.
