The best chapter is actually the first, containing a spot-on and very amusing explication of marital politics.
Mick Drake author of the comic novel All`s Well at Wellwithoute
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.
