Three Men in a Boat - Jerome K. Jerome, Ian Carmichael Ah, I enjoyed this very much, helped I think by the very fine reading by Ian Carmichael, who had just the sort of well enunciated, deadpan voice one could imagine the story might be delivered in. I particularly enjoyed the rambling, stream-of-consciousness style of the narrative, the silly anecdotes (the one about the narrator's experiences in rafting as a lad had me hooting with laughter), and the indulgent, poetically descriptive passages which punctuated the story. Lovely.
