Diary of a Pilgrimage

Jerome K. Jerome

Book Overview: 

A possibly fictionalized account by the comic novelist Jerome K. Jerome of a trip to Germany that he undertook with a friend in order to see the famous Passion Play at Oberammergau. The journey takes in London, Dover, Ostend, Cologne, Munich, Oberau, Oberammergau and then back to London via Heidelberg. As one might expect from the author of 'Three Men in a Boat', much goes wrong along the way, including seasickness, strange food, stranger beds, misleading guidebooks, bewildering train timetables, and numerous cultural and linguistic misunderstandings.

I replied that as far as I was concerned, I thought I could convey the desired impression without stooping to deceit at all, and prepared to make myself comfortable.

A few seconds later another man got into the carriage.  He also made room for himself among the luggage and sat down.

“I am afraid that seat’s taken, sir,” said B. when he had recovered his surprise at the man’s coolness.  “In fact, all the seats in this carriage are taken.”

“I can’t help that,” replied the ruffian, cynically.  “I’ve got to get to Cologne some time to-day, and there seems no other way of doing it that I can see.”

“Yes, but so has the gentlema. . . Read More

What can I say about this book. It is the funniest, best written comedy book ever to have been written. Sadly it makes all comedic writers, myself included, sound forced, clumsy and gauché.

Happily there has never ever been a film adaption that was anywhere approaching the quality of the writing and

Această carte ce cuprinde două povestiri este una plăcută, în care am întâlnit multe pasaje amuzante. Subiectul cărții nu este deosebit de complex, fiind redus la niște povestiri interesante, care însoțesc firul pricipalul al călătoriei celor trei.

Three Men in a Boat - 4 stars

I loved this. It was brilliantly written and had me laughing throughout. This was supposed to be a travel document but it turned out to be a laugh-riot.

Three Men on the Bummel - 3 stars

In the second book, our characters embark on a bicycle trip to Germany. I really loved

Unele pasaje au fost foarte amuzante, altele plictisitoare.
