A very funny little book, though its style takes a little getting used to. Once the cadence can be established, it is a charming story. A very quick read, but it'll bring a smile to your face.
A delightful period book, 1889. I read it a 2-3 pages at a time and thoroughly enjoyed it. The book is basically a long string of very short stories, strung together one after another with the common thread of 3 men who take a cruise down the Thames - to say nothing of the dog.
Love this one! A combination of humor (British so very fun), historical information, and just lyrical writing.
His descriptions are beautiful; the humor is typical British; and the historical information is presented in a way that is informative and not at all boring.
What a fun book!
