3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult not to condemn with faint praise, 31 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Three Men on the Bummel (Kindle Edition)
We are used nowadays to authors, film makers etc doing follow ups to cash in on an intitial success. It often proves a mistake and you can't help feeling that here.
Three Men in a Boat is justly famed for its wonderful ironic humour. Three Men on the Bummel starts off in a very promising fashion as the three decide they need a change and make preparations for a cycling tour of the Black Forest. The first few chapters are brilliant but when the three men get to Germany it all seems to tail off. There is actually rather little about cycling through the Black Forest and by the time the final chapters arrive they are not much more than Jerome K. Jerome's views of the Germans with little attempt at humour. The whole idea of the book just seems to run into the sand. Worth reading though just for those first few hilarious chapters.

A good and honest review. I might be a little less condemnatory, having grabbed it when a callow youth, since it is worth buying even if it doesn't quite measure up to 'Three Men in a Boat'.
