    I expected the Graphic Novel to add to my experience of Three Men in a Boat. But sadly, the narrative only helped to take away the magic.Good work on the illustrations.

    I'll need to read the actual book, I think, but this was a cute graphic novel and a very quick read. I've wanted to read Three Men in a Boat since I read To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis. I'll need to read the actual book, I think, but this was a cute graphic novel and a very quick read.

    Jerome K. Jerome's classic fictionalized tale about a boating trip up the Thames with two friends and a dog. This version of the story has been adapted into graphic novel form. I was disappointed that this adaptation cut out three of my favorite parts of the original. There's no thoughts on cheese in a boat, no swans (how can you cut out the swans!?!), and no bagpipes. So sad. It's still a fairly good adaptation. It keeps the sarcastic spirit of the original and the illustration style definitely Jerome K.

A good introduction to this classic, but I'd still encourage readers to check out the original for the full comedic enjoyment. Notes on content: One mild swear word. No sexual content or decency issues. No violence, except a dog killing a rat. True to the time period, all three men smoke pipes and have alcoholic beverages with meals.

    Contains much of the original story and Jerome K. Jerome's style of writing works very well in graphic novel form. However, cuts the darker elements of the story (the worst part in this one is when they consider eating a rat Montmorency brings them) and only has one of Jerome's deep soliloquies (which is given one frame on the page). In other words, kept the cream, took out the meat; the full book is better. Content notes: Includes mild swearing occasionally; no sensuality; threatened bodily har Contains much of the original story and Jerome K.
