Lovely escape from the modern world.
on 22 April 2017
My husband and I are really enjoying listening to this audio version of Three Men In Boat. Martin Jarvis is perfect in his portrayal of all the wonderful characters, particularly Harris!. We both read the book years ago and it's so nice to have it brought to life in such an excellent way, particularly as none of the TV and film adaptations have been satisfactory, really. What a lovely escape this is from all the doom and gloom of modern life; BREXIT and Theresa May and Donald Trump can be forgotten and we can lose ourselves in the magic world of Jerome K Jerome. Yet it is amazing how modern some of his views on life are, considering that this was written over a hundred years ago. You could meet many of the characters today. I love all the naughty 'small boys' that pop up in the stories, not to mention various dogs! Putting up a tent is probably just as stressful today.
