JEROME, J.: Three Men in a Boat (Unabridged)

Here is one of the greatest English comic novels read by incontrovertible king of English comic audiobook readers—Martin Jarvis. Three men, worried about their health and in search of different experiences, set off ‘up the river’ in a boat. Jerome’s delightful novel, dating from 1900, paints a vivid picture of innocent fun.
