Not short of moments of laughter, but romantic prose stole my heart.
No high-achiever but indolent-jester.

This is a really fun book for Anglophiles; for Dorothy Sayers or Agatha Christie or any Golden Age detective series, or any lovers of PG Wodehouse or the like. It was written over 100 years ago, and the three "heroes" (one is the narrator) are familiar goofy British upper-crust guys who decide to row themselves up the Thames to Oxford for a two-week lark. It includes slices of English history and social commentary (with gentle satire, usually) and descriptions of the countryside that make me want to go there right now.

One does need to keep in mind that certain attitudes and prejudices current in the 1880s make an occasional appearance, that are not so acceptable now. If "Anglo white male privilege" ruins books for you, give this one a pass.

The plenteous illustrations by Paul Cox make this a totally fun read. Get out your straw hat and your Wellies, it's time for adventure!

Uncle Podger is a classic character - should be in the lexicon. I used the Project Gutenberg, since I can never finish a book on my Sony Reader in three weeks. Happily it had the illustrations, as does Twain's "Roughing It" which I've started now.
