Three Men in a Boat was originally meant to be a serious travel guide, filled with local history and sentimental tidbits. The book was also written with a large amount of humor and wit, so much so that readers have embraced the humor to a far larger degree than its seriousness. Contemporary readers love how well the novel has aged; it's as apropos to day as the day it was written, just as fresh as ever.
