Three men in a boat - to say nothing about the dog!
Written by Jerome K. Jerome
Three men and a boat is quite an original book. The plot of the book is about three men who decide that they should take a boat trip down the Thames. The three men are George, Harris and the storyteller, also named “J”, and a dog, called Montmorency. They rent a boat, and after many discussions they set of along the river.

It all ends up by George happening to fall on the fish and accidentally drags it down when he is trying to get a closer look at the fish. The fish turns out to be from Paris.
The book contains many different stories, making it feel like many short stories rather than a book. But the stories are all very nice to read and I really enjoyed reading the book.
