This book is THE best, most heartwarming, laugh out loud book I have read in a really long time. You do not need to own a dog (but should probably like them) to appreciate this book and the story. I laughed so hard at some points in this book that others around me commented on what I could be reading. I highly recommend it, but you should also be warned to have your tissues ready! LOVED IT!!

Loved this book! I laughed out loud several times. Maybe because I've owned to golden labs in my life, but it was a hoot!

Anyone who has had their own "heart-dog" better have a box of tissues handy... the highs are high, but the lows will hit you hard...

Marley may be closer to the dog of your nightmares than your dreams, but he endears himself to the young couple who adopts him and teaches them the true meaning of love. If you love dogs, you'll love this book.

This book was a fantastic read! If you have ever had a dog of any kind you will relate to and cry with and laugh with the author. Marley and Me was a very lovable dog that taught us all lessons about appreciating the little things and enjoying life, but not always being perfect!

One of the better books I've read in a long time. I couldn't stop laughing nor could I stop crying. I recommend this book to all dog lovers.

âMarley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog John Groganâ

I give this book Two Paws Up. Loved it!!! I've listened to it on CD no less than five times.

âMarley & Meâ will take you on adventures that will make you laugh so hard you cry. It is a âMust Readâ for anyone who owns a Labrador. You will develop a special bond with Marley and John. I think every dog owner, or everyone who thought of owning a dog should read this wonderful book.

The only hard part for me was towards the end of the book as Marley aged, just as all lifelong companions do. I could relate to all that Marley (the dog) was dealing with and the questions and answers of John & his family. Like I told my friends, if you need to stop before the last chapter or twoâ¦.you will still have a wonderful read.

For myself, I am happy that I did not stop reading as Marley aged. The last chapter touched my heart. If you can deal with the age issueâ¦.get a box of tissues and read on.

Also you may want to note there are two versions of this book:

(1) âMarley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog John Groganâ (First book?)

(2) Marley: A Dog Like No Other - Reading Level: Ages 9-12 (same storyâ¦but age appropriate for younger readers)

I have both versions and I've enjoyed both. This is one book (or 2) I will be keeping for myself and will be buying copies to give as gifts.

I enjoyed this book so much I could hardly put it down. I found myself rearranging my schedule to find more time to read. I too went from at one time having the "perfect dog" to currently having one of the wildest out of control dogs I have ever seen. Like Marley, we love him in spite of or because of his shortcomings. This book will touch your heart with joy and sadness, sometimes both at the same time (my favorite emotion: laughter through tears) ... because it truly is about life and love.

I could't read it. Not because it's not a good book, but because I know sad things will happen in it and I'm just not good at reading stuff like that. Especially since I have a dog of my own and don't want to think about him in such a sad context (the end).

GREAT READ.

I enjoyed this tale of the author's life with Marley. The humor and love that his family had for each other and the dog was apparent. It was worth reading.

**I received this book with the cover bent**

Having said that, the widely anticipated was not what it was cracked up to be, but it was okay. There is some subject matter that is unsuitable for preteen readers (has NOTHING to do with the dog - not really sure why the author included it), so keep that in mind.

If you're looking for a great dog-related story read Amazing Gracie.
