Three Men on the Bummel (kindle or ELibro) Autore Jerome K. Jerome – Epub, Kindle and eLibro
Cold lemonade This is the second book about the three London based friends going on an adventure This time some years have passed since the boat trip the dog is no longer with them and two of them are marriedIt s all about escaping once again and romping through a countryside without having the first clue but being convinced one is an expert and all others a Jerome s digressive style can be amusing in small doses but this book is almost nothing but asides I did enjoy the parts that most closely resemble a travelogue of the cycle
through Germany these are drowned nder a flood of irrelevant memories and anecdotes I much preferred Diary of a Pilgrimage As a followup to the brilliant Threetrip through germany

In this book we revisit the old friends introduced in Three Men in a Boat minus the dognfortunately They are much older and married now J and Harris that is George is still a bachelor The three men decided they need a change in their lives yet again This time they go on a bicycle trip in Germany s Black Forest hilarity ensuresThe novel failed to repeat the charm and the humor of the first one People familiar with Three Men in a Boat remember the constant change of subject by the narrator These side stories were short funny and to the point The first third of this novel has the same structure but the side stories became bigger and lost their focus somewhat The humor is still there but to a lesser degree

English Viewed The New Youngviewed the new young of Germany The book is really a series of sketches and observations some like the throwing things at cats and the German attitude to grass are laugh out loud moments others strike you as wry and strangely modern observations on such things as young children s habit of getting Happy Halloween from the Montgomerys (With Me in Seattle, up at the crack of dawn or the limitations of journalism I also learned after whom the cartoon cat and mouse Tom and Jerry were named thanks to a line in this bookNear the end there is a chill for the modern reader on reading JKJ s warning about the direction Germany could go in if they were governed by bad rulersA good piece of Edwardian comic writing well worth whiling away an afternoon reading seated in a deckchair with a glass of.
