This title came to me from a book store in Durham NC. They were about to have a local author review it. The thing that interested me most is that it was published 120 yrs. ago and has Never been out of print. Yet, it is just as interesting now as it was then. The one major drawback for me was that the book didn't include a map of the river area where the characters were boating.

The author originally planned this book as a travel narrative. He decided that he should add some characters to make it more palatable. He added himself and a couple of friends. And the dog, which I didn't think added appreciably to the book, regardless of the cover blurb. What he winds up with is an interesting mish-mnash of travelogue and stream of consciousness chatter. Not boring. Mostly not laugh-out-loud. Just a nice fun read. Good hammock reading. A good pick to keep in your purse to read in waiting rooms and such.

Don't bother

This has been digitized from a print edition. It has so many typos it's not worth reading.

    British Humor At Its Best

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is British humor, which I love, so rather tongue in cheek. The author also gives the history of various cities along the river so he is really giving you a "history lesson" without making it seem as such. And he is a beautiful writer; there are a few passages here so are so lyrical. I loved it. Characters were great and the dog is a total ball.

    I Loved the book 15 years ago, I still love it!!

    We had to read this book in our undergraduate program as part of the curriculum. I loved it then. I read it again and again even after I had finished my masters. Unfortunately I lost the book during a move. I would like my daughter to read this book one day. I would love to have it in my 'collection'.
