This 19th century novel is the story of three men, accompanied by a dog, as they travel in a boat up the Thames River. The trip is taken by George and Harris and the narrator J., along with his rat terrier, Montmorency. After a few false starts in the preparations, the three men leave on their journey in a rented rowboat. As they pass each town and village along the way, J. provides brief, humorous histories of the area and the various monarchs and other notable figures associated with it, or side stories of his friends, himself or his dog (and even an uncle who has great difficulty hanging a picture). What starts out as a travel novel ends up being a comedy about the hilarious misadventures of this troublesome group plus one dog in a boat. The book is silly, but great fun, with a few rather poignant moments. One of my favorite was the description of being in the dark woods with the night stars. A 4 out of 5 stars.
