I was lucky enough to recieve a verson of this book dating from before 1912! I am by no means well read, or pretend to be, but Jerome speaks to me from beyond the grave in such a timeless fashion that still leaves me in creases; I will always recommend him. The simple premise of writing an essay on clocks or tea kettles I find hilarious on its own. Where does one start with such a subject let alone make it interesting? Well, If humour be the food of love, read on. His sense of humor is very warm and apart from the odd noun its easy to forget how long ago it was written which impresses me. Alas, I am no fit judge of the writing style, I can rarely sustain a whole book - all those pages! So maybe that speaks for its self in that it is one of a select few that I have read cover to cover, a noble feat! Most books fail around page 19. I know what I like and well written or not this is it.

Why not try the thoughts of an idle fellow too?

i love this book, equally to 3 men in a boat..describes jerome and his friend going to see the passion play in germany...well, more the getting there than anything...and is so humorous and enjoyable as it appears to take weeks and neither seem to be able to be understood by anyone foreign (especially when ordering omelettes) and it is just perfect..highly recommend

The majority of the reading public should be charged with Criminal Neglect for failing to recognise Jerome K Jerome's literary talent. His nearest contemporary, Mark Twain, is widely lauded the world over, and yet we ignore the English alternative.
JKJ has a gentle, meandering style that soothes and entertains. His observations- often self-deprecating- are spot-on, and paint a wonderful picture of Life around the turn of the century.
This particular book is a rambling, loose-limbed saunter across Germany, and although you wouldn't want to use it as a travel guide today it does make for a wonderful, charasmatic read.
What's more, it's FREE, and so are all his other works! Read it, read the others, and spread the word!

JKJ genius. Some of his best writing.

Not all of his work, like his contemporaries, can now be captured/dramatized in period theme stories on film and, therefore, must be read.

I was not ware of the existence of this book until I searched on Amazon. Having already read Three Men in a Boat and Three Men on The Bummel I could not imagine that there could be another comic masterpiece from JKJ to be in existence. How wrong was I, he has in this book surpassed himself. Laugh out loud on every page as you travel with J and his friend across Germany. The most delightful thing is that even though this is a book written in the now presumed "dark ages" we can all relate to the trials an tribulations faced by this hapless pair as they meander across foreign lands, with J. trying out his knowledge of languages on the bemused and confused locals.
It is a triumph and I cannot recommend it too highly
