Book Review   by:extrovert     Original Author: jerome k. jerome
ª
 
Three men in a boat It is a extremely interesting piece of story. The central characters of the story are George, Harris, Jerome k. Jerome & Montmorency. All of the characters are very interesting and nostalgic which adds spice to the story. They think different ways to enjoy themselves. After giving consideration to different options. They finally decided to go on a boating trip to soothe their nerves. They make extensive preparations in this regard. They take every possible thing they might require during the whole trip. After that they decide to embark on the trip. In this trip they create different funny situations which look quite hilarious at times. Harris is extremely lazy and always we see that he is sleeping in the story. The other characters have not got any peculiar thing except Montmorency. Jerome k. Jerome says that when he bought that dog he thought that he is very simple animal but he had to change his ideas when in no time he killed a 12 chickens and 2 cats. I was termed murder by the lady who owned the cats. On their boating trip they stayed at different hotels& different unique situations arose from them. Their hotel ling experiences were quite horrible &dreaded. They were forced to remember the forgettable events of George father being thrown out the bed and the vice versa alike. the humorous situation makes the reader to laugh whole heartedly. The opening up of fruit can without any result makes the reader to enjoy the story more. The different tricks and the tracts employed by the different characters makes us to love the tale all the more. The cooking up of eggs by Harris and the way he dances around when the fire touches his hands makes the reader enjoy the tale and love the way of description. Another important event to be noted is that when the boat hit the bank at Hampton court palace at the side of river Thames. Harris remembers of an interesting event. He remembers once he happened to be in a maze & some other people were also him. He had got the map of the maze. He pretended that he knew the maze very well but was not the case. He assured the people that he will lead them out of the maze but that was a white lie. An anxious lady with a child with her caught hold of him. When the people came to know that he was only faking them and they got really angry but the situation was calmed by theold keeper of the maze who led them out and saved Harris.
George also narrated a wonderful story that one day his clock stopped quarter past eight. And he went out and when he found that there is no much activity going around. He inquired with police fellow what is the time now. he told him it is 3. so he went away the spent the whole night in real agony. Jerome one day fell into the river when he came out he tried to put on his shirt but it was of no use as he had got no shirt and his shirt had fallen into the water but it was extremely amusing instance that the shirt not of him it was of George. They had also encountered with a trout in hotel. Different people in the hotel came and claimed that they had caught that fish which made them quite perplexed so I order to catch a closer glimpse of that marvelous fiaf. George climbed on a stool but in the process he got slipped and he caught the case which fell on the ground with and it got reveled that it was stuffed trout not a real one. Montmorency had got a great hatred with cats . he had also given terrible time to cats. By on their boating trip an encounter with the really frightened him to an extreme proportion. Harris had a bad day dream because of excessive use alcohol. When George and Jerome were away on their return he was told he had encounter with more than two dozen swans which the following he refused blatantly. Harris doing preparation for lunch fell into a pit which he said was masterminded by me ans George. The essence of the tale is that the writer has brought forward the funnier aspects of life which really make us enjoy ourselves. It is truly the most enjoyable book which the reader enjoy more & more as he makes his inroads into the book which tells about the greatness the book. &
