• Wonderfully fresh and funny, and among examples of Victorian humour I would place it high in the pantheon, right up there with The Importance of Being Earnest and The Diary of a Nobody...Jerome's writing...triumphantly stands the test of time, with its comic flights of exaggeration, its occasional archness, and its entirely innocent hint of the camp

    Daily Telegraph
  • A charming comedy of friendship and human nature

  • One of the funniest books I've ever read. I laughed out loud and that doesn't happen often

    Vic Reeves, Daily Express
  • Brought laughter to a country in the throes of Victorian gloom

    The Times
  • As well as being very funny, it captures the innocence of a time before adventure became synonymous with bungee jumping into ravines in faraway places
