About This Book


Published in the year 1889, Three Men in a Boat, is a humorous account of a two-week boating holiday on the Thames from Kingston to Oxford and back to Kingston. It is based on three best friends and a faithful dog who take this adventurous boat trip. The narrator in the novel J is the author himself and the two friends are his real friends George and Karl. The book was meant to be a travel guide depicting local history along the route, but the humorous elements took over and it turned out to be an undated comic novel – fresh and witty even today.

What is notable about this novel is the pace of the narrative; the story moves as the river does. For the most part, J tells the story–and all the stories within the story–at a relaxed pace, but there are certain moments and scenes where the tension rises. This mimics the way a river can become powerful in certain areas while remaining calm in others.

More recently, Three Men in a Boat has found a home on top-book lists, including “The 100 Greatest Novels of All Time” in 2003 and “50 Funniest Books Ever” in 2009.
