Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog), published in 1889, is a humorous account by Jerome K. Jerome of a boating holiday on the Thames between Kingston and Oxford. The trip has been recreated many times since most recently in 2005 for the BBC. Quotes and references turn up regularly, ranging from references in Robert A. Heinlein's 1958 Have space suit will travel through to the 2006 film Pirates of the Caribbean.
Clever advertising and marketing turns Tono-Bungay from an ineffective tonic into a miraculous one with powerful placebo effects and even greater profits. H.G. Wells exposes medical charlatans for what they are in Tono-Bungay. A story of relevance when it was first published in 1909 and very much still relevant today.
A pioneer in travel literature, Travels with a donkey in the Cevennes is Robert Louis Stevenson's account of his 12 day journey through Cevennes, France. He suffered from ill health for much of his life, and this was his opportunity for a long desired adventure. Accompanied by a stubborn donkey, Modestine, Stevenson takes a serious note at times and at others, regales with tales of his encounters. Very entertaining indeed.
