Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog) is a book by the English writer and playwright Jerome K. Jerome. The book was first published in 2006. This book narrates about a boat trip on the Thames between Kingston and Oxford. The characters' prototypes were the writer himself and his two friends — George Wingrave and Carl Hentschel. Another character, the dog Montmorency, is fictional. The book was very popular at the writer's time, and it is still relevant because there are many good jokes composed by the author.
