General notes at the end of the book that present an overview of the book, contexting it in the period in which it was written, and discuss the major themes, characters, or the genre of the book f. Artwork that bring to life certain episodes in the story Suggestions for further reading and website links that the reader will find informative and helpful   Three Men in a Boat is a humorous story of three men and a dog who undertake a boating trip on the Thames. Jerome K Jerome based the characters of the three men on himself and his two friends, George Wingrave (George) and Carl Hentschel (Harris). However, the dog Montmorency is fictional, whose antics add substantially to the humour in the story. When the book was first published, it was not liked by critics, who considered the writing flippant. The book professed no wish to improve the reader's mind, intent merely on sharing the excitement and fun of a boating holiday. Unlike the other writers of his period, Jerome used colloquial language to portray the tone of exuberance and fun. In both content and language, therefore, it was a complete contrast to the kind of books that were written at that time. However, the general public liked the book for precisely this very reason, as it brought a whiff of fresh air to staid Victorian manners and society. At a time when hard work and earnest endeavour were lauded, and the country prided itself on its commercial and political progress, the story of three young men doing nothing more than boating down the Thames was a refreshing change.   The book was an instant bestseller and was reprinted many times, so much so that its publisher, J W Arrowsmith, wondered whether the public was eating the copies! The book has stood the test of time and continues to amuse readers even today. The humour in the book is based on a fine insight into human nature, exposing pretensions to refinement and knowledge in a lighthearted way. The book has been adapted to almost every conceivable medium - television, films, musicals, radio, and even audio tapes.

Jerome K. Jerome

If this is your first encounter with Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog) you're certainly in for a treat! One of the most delightful examples of Victorian humor, this book by Jerome K Jerome is all the way a fun cruise down the Thames River with some funny characters for company.Three Men in a Boat was originally meant to be a serious piece of travel writing, full of local flavors, legends and folklore about England's mighty river. As it turned out, somewhere along the way, the author Jerome found himself catapulted into a madcap adventure. The plot is relatively simple. It describes three friends, namely, the author himself, Jerome, George Wingrave and Harris, who set out with their dog on a boat trip and encounter a series of amusing, poignant and strange happenings along the river. Wingrave and Harris (Carl Hentschel in real life) are both friends with whom Jerome often took trips on boats. The dog Montmorency however, is fictional!The three friends meet one evening and begin discussing their busy lives and how they feel stressed and overworked. They also imagine that they are prey to exotic and fatal diseases. The solution, they feel, is a nice long holiday. After much discussion and consideration of many options, they decide to take a boat and sail along the Thames from Kingston to Oxford, camping in suitable places along the way as the river takes them.There are interesting nuggets of history thrown in like the landmarks of Hampton Court, Marlow, Magna Carta Island and the like. In between, the author goes off on several entertaining tangents regarding a host of topics like anecdotes about his Uncle and Aunt Podger, imaginative flights of fancy, the mischievous doings of Montmorency and a hundred other digressions. Jerome's thoughts on steam ships verses tug boats, putting up tents, cooking on oil stoves, the uselessness of barometers and many more add spice and zest to the mix.

Jerome Klapka Jerome

Jerome K Jerome is best known for his hilarious book "Three Men in a Boat" charting the misadventures of the author and his friends on a boating trip up the Thames. The book started off as a serious Travel Book, but morphed into a very funny book and a social commentary. The success of this book caused the author to write a sequel "Three Men on the Bummel", the same character choose this time to take a cycling trip in Germany. "Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow" is another humorous book, but this time peppered with philosophical truths. As is its sequel "Second Thoughts of an Idle Fellow". "Told after Supper" is a series of humorous Ghost Stories. "Diary of a Pilgrimage" is another funny travel book - a journey to see the famous Passion Play at Oberammergau, again very witty and deserves to be read along with Jerome's more famous book. The "Philosopher's Joke" is a short story involving six friends who meet an old philosopher. For a joke, or perhaps a dream, they start a strange journey into their past. Will they take hold of this opportunity and reap the benefits? "All Roads lead to Calvary" is a very different book. Set at the beginning of World War I it charts the progress of a number of professional women who make their way through life without the support of men. Jerome reveals his theology in this book, a theology of the cross: as God in Christ suffered, so all self-giving leads to God. In addition, God is not to be thought of as a great king but as a fellow-worker and his purposes are worked out in the everyday struggles of life. "Sketches in Lavender, Blue and Green" is an excellent and sometimes amusing short story collection. It includes "Reginald Blake, Financier and Cad," "An item of Fashionable Intelligence," "Blas Billy," "The Choice of Cyril Harjohn," "The Materialisation of Charles and Mivanway," "Portrait of a Lady," "The Man Who Would Manage," "The Man Who Lived For Others," "A Man of Habit," "The Absent-minded Man," "A Charming Woman," "Whibley's Spirit," "The Man Who Went Wrong," "The Hobby Rider," "The Man Who Did Not Believe In Luck," "Dick Dunkerman's Cat," "The Minor Poet's Story," "The Degeneration of Thomas Henry," "The City of The Sea," and "Driftwood."
