Translated from the Japanese
by Jean-François Laffont and Tadahiro Oku
Literary fiction / Japanese literature

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS BOOK
After listening to The Phantom of the Opera, I could not choose a more different book. Three Men in a Boat totally hilarious, a bit in the style of P.G. Wodehouse.
