Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome

I believe this book to be English literature’s answer to Mark Twain.

It’s the story of three silly and profoundly lazy men (and their disreputable dog) who decide to take a long boating trip down the Thames River to cure them of their hypochondria-inspired illnesses. What follows is a series of misadventures as the men discover that boating may not be as relaxing as it appears.

This book is comparable to Mark Twain’s “Life on the Mississippi.” It’s over-the-top humor interspersed with descriptive passages of life along the river.
