"I had the general symptoms, the chief among them being a disinclination to work of any kind."So begin the hilarious misadventures of a merry, but scandalously lazy band of well-to-do young men-and a plucky and rather world-weary fox terrier named Montmorency-on an idyllic cruise along the River Thames. Feeling seedy, muses one of them dreamily, "What we want is rest." What they find instead is one hapless catastrophe after another. Soggy weather, humiliating dunkings, the irritating behavior of small boats and the "contrariness of teakettles" are just a few of the barbarisms our genteel heroes are forced to endure. But which a delighted reader can only sing, Hooray!First published in 1889, Three Men in a Boat was an instant success, and Jerome has been compared to comic master P.G. Wodehouse.

4.0 Three Men in a Boat
Lovely little book, perfect for rainy days. The comic situations and the magnetic writing are the key ingredients of Jerome K. Jerome's most popular novel.

"Trzech panów..." wpadło w moje ręce zupełnie przypadkowo. Przyznaję, szukałam darmowego audiobooka na spotify i napatoczył się ten utwór. Od pierwszej chwili mnie porwał ciętym humorem i sporą dawką ironii. Trudno uwierzyć, że to tekst dziewiętnastowieczny. Barwna opowieść o dziarskich facetach, i ...
