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.
Read this with a box of tissue nearby. You'll be laughing one moment and crying the next. A wonderful tale for woof lovers. Marley is wonderfully quirky and lovable. You'll want a copy for your library and to give as a gift.
