Three Men on the Bummel is the story of a Victorian bicycle trip gone wrong-then wrong and wrong again! A trio of British gentlemen attempt a cycling expedition in Germany's Black Forest. Confusion about the differences in language and culture get them into continual trouble, whether it's boarding a train, buying a present for an aunt, or simply trying to get safely from one place to another. Will they ever get back to their own lives-and will they really want to? Reprising the characters from Jerome's hugely popular Three Men in a Boat, this gently humorous book will delight anyone who has ever had an unpredictable vacation.… (mere)

    Tre mænd i en båd (og selvfølgelig også hunden) af Jerome K. Jerome (rakerman)
    rakerman: Three Men on a Boat (the first book) is much better at sustaining the humour throughout. Three Men on the Bummel is funny to start, but loses a bit once they start on the trip.

I didn't find this sequel nearly as funny as the first book ("Three Men on a Boat") but I suspect part of that is that narrator David Case (aka Frederick Davidson) wasn't as good as Stephen Crossley (whose narration I listened to in the first book). Also my attention has been poor due to current events here in the U.S. so that probably played a role. ( )

Overall as good as Three Men in a Boat. Makes one regret than the author didn't write a third such book, for instance about some travels in France. ( )

Jerome K Jerome had the misfortune to write one of the most famous-for-being-funny books in the English language, as a result of which no-one (including me...) seems to be much interested in the rest of his long and quite successful career as journalist, essayist, playwright, novelist and campaigner for copyright reform. This, his third travel book, which reunites George, Harris and J. from Three men in a boat on a trip to Germany, is one of the few that does still get read from time to time.

Three men in a boat was largely fiction — Jerome worked characters based on his friends "George" (George Wingrave, who had been his flatmate when he was starting out as a journalist) and "Harris" (the photographer Carl Hentschel) into the story of a boating trip he actually made with his wife — but the Bummel seems to have been based on a real holiday the three men took together.

It's billed as a cycling holiday, and the book contains a couple of very famous funny cycling anecdotes (the one about the unfortunate tandem rider who failed to notice that he had left his wife behind somewhere along the way, and the one about the officious friend who insists on "overhauling" your bike for you). But in fact cycling in the Schwarzwald and the Vosges only occupies a few days of the holiday, the rest of the time they are travelling around Germany and Austria-Hungary by train with their bikes in the luggage van.

Jerome has learnt from the earlier book that the "purple passages" describing landscape were the parts readers enjoyed least, so he keeps the scenery to a minimum here (but he does include a comic anecdote to underline the point that one forest is much like another as far as the reader's imagination is concerned). What we get most of are stories about the process of travelling in a foreign country (trains, hotels, linguistic difficulties, etc.) and stories about the peculiarities of the Germans (and Czechs and Alsatians) as seen by an English traveller. A recurrent theme is the Germans' strange need to have every aspect of civil life covered by detailed rules and official notices, as opposed to the English habit of leaving things to common-sense. It made me wonder what Jerome would think of the hyper-regulated police-state that is 21st century Britain...

What is striking is that Jerome's knowledge of German life clearly isn't just the superficial observation of a short-term holiday visitor it's presented as. He seems to have a pretty good understanding of the language and he knows about things that a tourist wouldn't think to look at (for instance, he refers to the German criminal law code several times). As he never seems to have lived or studied in Germany, I wondered if some of this is down to Hentschel, who came from a (presumably German-speaking) family that moved from Łódź to London when he was a small boy.

Is it still funny? Well, yes, mostly, although you do have to tune yourself to the slow progress towards the punchline that characterises Jerome's anecdotes, which can be quite painful if you already know where they are heading. And you have to put out of your mind how the sort of harmless jokes Jerome is making about "the Germans" got twisted into savage propaganda later in the century, and how elements of that propaganda, long after it was needed, are still distorting the minds of people who write for and read British tabloid newspapers.

And sometimes it is simply too subtle for a hurried modern reader — for instance, there's a running joke about George's aunt, whom he writes to every day and buys presents for. Only on this (third or fourth) reading did the penny drop that we're supposed to realise that she isn't an aunt at all, and that J and Harris are tactfully pretending that they don't know that... ( )

Seguito del fortunato Tre uomini in barca, di cui segue la stessa scia: un umorismo garbato e benevolo, improntato su quell'understatment un po' sornione che è così tipicamente "british".
A differenza di quanto accade di solito non è inferiore al predecessore, perchè se il primo aveva il vantaggio della freschezza e dell'originalità, in quest'opera troviamo un Jerome più maturo e consapevole delle sue potenzialità e dei suoi obiettivi (ricordiamo che Tre uomini in barca era nato originariamente come guida turistica).
E' un libro costantemente in bilico tra il serio e il faceto, che in uno stesso capitolo alterna aneddoti grotteschi a riflessioni acute sulla società; l'ironia quindi non è immediata, richiede al lettore un piccolo sforzo di comprensione del testo che in quest'epoca in cui siamo abituati ad avere tutto e subito può risultare antiquato e poco piacevole. Io invece trovo questo tipo di umorismo più stimolante: preferisco ridere meno, ma con inteligenza. ( )

George, Harris and J decide on a cycle tour of Germany. The early chapters discuss their family life with scant regard to their wives, the later chapters describe their travels. Rambling with a bit of humour now and again, quite good to read aloud. ( )
