I read through Chapt. 13 when I began to feel as though I were rowing in place! Bob pretty much described my take on it...liked the river/locks parts; the scenes along the banks. The three chaps...overdone, boring, and the dog a dud. Not my idea of a classic though it may be better a chapter or two at a time.

I did run across this poll (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2138...-All-Time.html) putting Three Men in a Boat 49th on a list of 50 greatest novels of all time, so maybe I'm missing something. I cannot see it on the same list with To Kill a Mockingbird, Catch 22, To the Lighthouse, or any of the other 30 or so on the list that I have read or am familiar with. Or even a list of 500+ others that I should read!

hope the italics come out right. It's the first time I've tried using them.
