A true humorous classic

It is one of my favorite books. I read it when I was a kid and I could for instance totally relate to the struggle of the Three Men (not to mention the dog) trying to set up a tent-like cover on their boat for the night. This scene is very funny, especially for everybody who has ever gone camping and has tried to set up a tent with the "help" of many people - especially in the rain....
Also the things that happen when you are trying to open a can without a can opener has apparently not changed since over a hundred years - it is hilarious to listen to or to read.
I had high expectations in Hugh Laurie reading the book but I must admit I did absolutely love it - maybe because it is abridged. However, I can recommend this audio book but I can also (maybe even more so) recommend reading the original unabridged book. Enjoy!
