My Papa bought me this book last June 12, 2012. It was an Independence Day sale at bestsellers and from 119pesos, this book went down to 50pesos. Reading this became such a drag to me. I had so "many" laughs while reading it but my attention span to things about boats and rowing and sailing is unfortunately limited.
This is a story about three men and a dog's journey to unwind themselves and get a quick escape from the city by travelling in a boat. It is a story about comradeship, facts about life, geographical landmarks and also history.
Reading this book taught me so well about England, the journey in the waters gives a similar connection to roadtrips in this era. A hankering for finding oneself is always best especially with friends. I can't quite give an explanation why a hundred years from now, with different style in narration and different approach in grammar, still this book is hilarious!
This is my first classic book-review and what a fresh start!
