This review is from: Three Men in a Boat and Three Men on the Bummel (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
Who can fault the Three Men in a Boat? I was talking with someone about pre first World War Germany and Three Men on the Bummel was recommended for it's acute observations on this subject. It's very well written with much comedy.

This review is from: Three Men in a Boat and Three Men on the Bummel (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
I had forgotten how hilarious these books are. Three Men In A Boat is full of characters whom we have all met - Uncle Podger in particular is timeless. And the description of the Thames is still true to life.

The Bummel is another matter. A bit more serious although still entertaining. His views of the Germans lead to sombre thoughts when you reflect on what has happened since. But he understood them (and their language) better than most English-speaking authors on either side of the Atlantic. Alas, most of what he describes of Germany itself suffered the attentions of the USAF and the RAF and is no more.
