Critics savaged Three Men in a Boat, describing it as vulgar for its attempts to appeal to the lower classes. However, it was extremely popular, and its success ensured Jerome and his family financial stability for life. It sold 202,000 copies in its first year, and more than one million copies in the 20 years after its publication. Much of its success can be attributed to the whimsical tone and light humor of the book. It also has an authenticity about it that brings readers along for the ride with these very quirky characters.
