Fans of actor Hugh Laurie will be thrilled with this classic tale of three English gentlemen and a dog who take a short boat ride on the Thames for a holiday in 1889. The dry humor throughout the gentlemen's adventures is enhanced by Laurie's crisp delivery and jocular tones. Listeners may laugh aloud as they experience the travelers' culinary follies and navigational challenges along their journey. Laurie also expresses a sincere tone of nostalgia as the author who is warmly recounting his exploits with friends—both human and canine. The only flaw with this recording is that it’s abridged. The listener is sure to be left wanting to know what parts were left out. K.M.D. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2009]
