Item description for Three Men on the Bummel (Large Print) by Jerome K. Jerome...

A "bummel" is a journey without end. Whether we want to or not, most of us have to settle with a return to our regular exertions.

So do these heroes of THREE MEN IN A BOAT, only on this occasion, a cycling trip through the Black Forest, it seems they may cycle on forever, such are their problems. Whether it's George attempting to buy a cushion for his aunt or Harris's harrowing experience with a road-waterer, not to mention the routine problems with language and directions, things get very confused indeed!

"A delightful excursion in a world which, alas, exists no longer--and indeed may only have been found in the author's lively imagination." (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)

Reviews - What do customers think about Three Men on the Bummel (Large Print)?

Three men - Two stars  Mar 8, 2006
Three men in a boat is a fantastic read - the mix of comedy and adventure is perfect and it captures the Victorian era to a 't'.

I therefore had high hopes of the sequel, Three men on the bummel. Unfortunetly I can not praise it. The laugh aloud comedy element has given way to, at beast monologues you smile through, at worst, ones you want to skip. The adventure is in short supply and doesn't sit well with the comedy. A real shame.
What could possibly go wrong?  Feb 3, 2005
Three Englismen decide to go on holiday in Germany. They plan to take their bicycles; they will travel by train between the major cities and do day trips by bike. What could possibly go wrong?

The answer is EVERYTHING! You will laugh yourself sick.

I'm surprised that this hasn't been made into a film or a TV series; get some of the guys from Monty Python, or the guys who played James, Tristan and Sigfried on "All Creatures Great & Small".
Rollicking story of three gentlemen on a cycling tour   Dec 9, 2004
Three Men On The Bummel is Jerome K. Jerome rollicking story of three late-Victorian gentlemen on a cycling tour in Germany's Black Forest. This long out of print comic classic of English literature is now finally available in a complete and unabridged audiobook format (6 CDs, 6 hours, 56 minutes) enhanced with a superb narration by David Case. School and community are encouraged to send for the free Tantor Media catalog for a complete listing of their unabridged literary classics of popular fiction.
Humorous tales of cycling the Black Forest  Jan 13, 2004
I read this book--which I assume is a fictionalized account of an actual journay--after having spent a year in Germany and I bemused by the fact that the Germans that Jerome K. Jerome characterizes in this book (published in 1900) are very similar to those of the present day. Added to this, is the fact that the book is mainly set in the Black Forest region of Germany, which is where I stayed. So not only was this book humorous and entertaining, it rekindled fond memories as well. The writing I fear will disillusion the more casual reader, but for those who have the inclination, this book is a very worthwhile read.
