When I first picked up the book I was trying to imagine how an entire book could be written just about someone's dog. But, Grogan is really writing a family memoir centered around his beloved pet. Anyone who loves animals and most certainly anyone who has had a "rambunctious" pet will smile, groan and be shaking their head saying "Oh, yeah,,,I get that!" as they follow Marley through puppyhood to adulthood.

This book is a heartwarmer! Marley is your typical lab, playful, loving, loyal and totally destructive. They love to chew up everything. I know because I had a yellow lab who ate through our air conditioning wiring twice, the phone line, totally chewed through our wooden fence, dug up half the plants in our backyard, ate holes in my son's brand new comforter, and would bark back at me when scolded--and then pout. He also learned how to turn on the back yard faucet, flood the yard and roll in the mud. Ah yes, good times, good times. Marley, however, really IS the world's worst lab I've ever heard of. He put my dog to shame. But Marley will make you fall in love with him in spite of all his flaws. How can any dog lover not fall in love with a lab puppy? This is a true story, so get ready to laugh and cry. Marley is the type of dog who is one of a kind and will remain in your heart long after you read this book. Can't wait for the movie that's being made.

A story that mimics my 10 years with my Dalamatian Sadie. It made me laugh and think about similiar times I had with Sadie. I hope to be like John Grogan when he had to part with Marley. I passed the book on but would read it again and again.

John Grogan puts into words what anyone with a soul-mate pet feels into the words we wish we could express. The story makes you laugh and makes you cry. One of the best animal reads since James Harriot.

What can I say, other than that John Grogan's book, "Marley & Me", will surely have every dog owner laughing their way through the pages of this book, wondering if he was somehow able to peer into their homes and write about the antics and adventures of their own dogs. A thoroughly enjoyable, sweet and charming read that no dog lover should miss!!

This book was given to me by a family member, as I have a yellow lab. I immediately began relating to the stories of getting used to a new puppy and all the personality quirks that you learn to love when raising a new dog. It started out for me as a great light-hearted book that I related to a lot.

However, I soon felt an eerie connection with the book... it began to mirror my own life more and more. My husband and I had welcomed in our yellow lab pup into our home, and we became pregnant around the time I started reading the book. I even had the book with me the day I went to the doctor's office for an ultrasound when I was concerned that something wasn't right with the pregnancy. Afterward, while sitting in a room waiting for the results, I re-read the chapter where the author describes the miscarriage of he and his wife experienced. Shortly after, I was told I had miscarried. It was a devastating experience, but I found a small comfort in being able to read how the situation affected another couple. It helped me grieve, but it also helped me start to heal.

The beauty of this book is the way the story of life is told, weaving lessons of love throughout. It's not just the tale of the family dog (as entertaining as those parts are!), but the entire family. It is particularly special to me, and I'll hold it near my heart for a long time.

I loved this book. It was such a great read. John Grogan does an outstanding job of choosing just the right words to illustrate his old friend, Marley, and his crazy canine antics. The story of this hilariously bad dog and his human family really puts in perspective what is most important to us in life or rather what should be most important to all of us - unconditional love, joy, loyalty, devotion and contentment.

I laughed, cried and was extremely moved by this heartwarming memoir. Pick it up even if you aren't a pet owner, and you'll love it, too.

I read this book and it so reminded me of my black lab Tango who we had to put to sleep a few years ago, and she was almost an exact copy of Marley. This book made me laugh and cry (a lot) because it reminded me so much of my beloved lab. If you're a pet owner, this is a must read. If you have kids that want an animal, let them read this book so they can see what it is like to raise an animal and to loose it as well so that they will understand what they will have to go through if they choose such an animal, because losing someone is never easy.

This is absolutely the best book i've had the opportunity to read in a long time. One worth writing a review for, thats for sure. The movie just came out in the theater not to long ago, but the book is fantastic. I laughed and cried and have told everyone who loves dogs that you've got to read this book and or see the movie. Make sure to take hankies with you though, you'll need them for all the laughing you'll do so hard it will make you cry. And then of course for the tears that you'll shed if you are a real true dog lover.This was so well written. My hats off to John Grogan.

Marley, you really tugged at my heart strings boy!! A surprise awaits you around every corner with this four legged beast around. Don't let this book slip past you.

I recently lost my yellow labrador retriever of 14 years. I still terribly miss our "Finley"; our wonderful perfect yellow labrador retriever. Even writing this my eyes start tearing. The picture on the cover of "Marley and Me" enticed me into reading a book about a dog. I had not even heard about this book or the upcoming movie. I am so glad I read this book, and I am even more thankful to the author, John Grogan, for writing it. The author beautifully chronicles a dog's life with his beloved owners. The unconditional love flows throughout the story. The ups and downs of dog ownership, especially with Labs, makes you laugh and giggle with every turn of the page. Though my Lab was the well behaved gentleman Lab, never doing anything wrong, I still connected with Grogan's description of the "looks" and the wagging tail of his dog, Marley. The first 200 pages give anyone a superb realization of what life with a dog is all about, especially a Lab with boundless energy. Get a box of Kleenex for the last chapters of the book. I sobbed and sobbed, crying my eyes out, and was still a mess the next day. If you love dogs, you MUST read this book.

It starts with a rush decision to purchase a puppy without completely research his lineage and leads us through a love story with a very difficult, loyal, loving dog. Anyone who thinks that the initial cost of buying a pedigree pet is the major expense needs to read this book. Anyone who thinks training a pet is as snap needs to read this book. Anyone who is about ready to give up on a difficult pet also needs to read this book. Get your kleenex ready for the ending, for as we know no dog is eternal. The postscript, there are many more loving pups awaiting loving owners. I loved this book, another dog lover said, " I thought it was so sad." Of course it was, Marley grew old in a loving home and passed away. I should be so loved.

This was such a GREAT book! It was a little long for my son to read by himself so I would read 1 or 2 chapters a night. Pretty soon the whole family was listening to story time. We laughed, we cried, we laughed some more. It was a borrowed book we read but since then we have decided to add it to our own collection. A must read for dog lovers or anyone else who wants to hear the tale of a pup who runs the household.

"Marley & Me" is everything a book should be. At times I found myself gasping for breath after laughing so hard, at other times I found myself crying into my dog's, Ellie, fur. The book has some slow parts but over all it flows very smoothly. I feel in love with the Grogan family, especially Marley, and in a way it drew me closer to Ellie (if it was possible to be closer that is.)
This book is great for everyone, Pet Owner or Not, but I really believe that Pet Owners appreciate it just a little bit more.

Marley & Me by John Grogan is a "must read" for dog lovers. I tried it for my first audio book, and it made the miles fly! But I did have to save the last disk for home - it's hard to see the road through the tears.

It's a true story of a young yellow lab and his family growing up together. Marley is not the perfect dog, but how many of those do we find in real life. There are tender moments that brings a tear to the eye, and there are the hillarious episodes that made me laugh out loud. Then there are the events that I just shake my head and think - just like my dogs.

Note: Not a "Lassie" style tale for children

Absolutely delightful book. Reminds me of our first dog, that we loved dearly and proceeded to damage doors, floors, pillows, etc. You fall in love with Marley, but understand the "dangers" of picking up someone else's problem pet. Gave this to my son-in-law to read when he was all set to pick up a rescue lab from a shelter.
Highly recommend the book for a multitude of reasons, one being it is just a good read.

My kids saw this movie then suggested I read the book (which I had had for 6 months or so in my "to be read" shelf). I thought it would be a typical "newly-wed couple gets dog, then has kids, dog gets along with kids then dies" story so I was prepared to not like the book. But Grogan is a good writer and put lots of interesting details in the story-telling. I knew Marley would die (as all dogs do plus my kids sad the movie ending was soooo sad, sniff-sniff) but I, too, cried at the end. Any dog lover will enjoy this book.

In "Marley & Me," John Grogan invites the readers to share the life of his Marley, the "world's worst dog." Grogan not only shares funny stories about living with the "world's worst dog," but illustrates how Marley was an vital part of his family, and how Marley shared various experiences with him as he made his transition from newlywed to nearly middle aged father. Grogan really makes each scene come alive as clearly as a snapshot (I could just picture some of Marley's antics and found myself laughing aloud a number of times), making this book a pleasure to read from start to finish. He really does an excellent job of describing Marley as beloved but flawed, something anyone with a pet/ who ever had a pet can probably relate to. Most importantly, he shows how Marley helped him grow by discussing the lessons he had taught him, just by being the hyperactive-drooling-food stealing-diaper sniffing-obedience school flunking-eccentric dog that he was born to be.

I highly recommend checking this book out. It's a light & quick read that will stay with you long after you finish it! :-)

I am not a big fan of animal books so I was prepared to not like this book, but it was a choice of my F2F book group. Although I love dogs, I didn't want to read a memoir about âLife and Love with the World's Worst Dogâ, sure it would be a sentimental remembrance that just wouldn't appeal to me. So imagine my surprise as I was utterly captivated by the story of Marley, if not the world's worst dog, surely a difficult one. A very large, headstrong and virtually untrainable Labrador retriever, Marley was also lovable, steadfast and the true definition of man's best friend. His absolute joy for life and his love of his fmily came through on every page. Marley was not an idealized version of a dog, a Hollywood Lassie or Rin Tin Tin both of whom probably never sniffed anyone's crotch. He had the heart of a puppy through all of his 12 years, but at 90 pounds his exuberance was often of a destructive nature. Marley hated thunderstorms, loved the ocean, was protective of his family and always ready with a big slobbery kiss. I give a lot of credit to the Grogan family for seeing the good in their beloved dog, he is the kind of adorable puppy that when grown often ends up back in a shelter. For all the love Marley gave them, they returned it in equal measure. A funny and thoroughly enjoyable memoir.

I just finished Marley and Me last night. I picked it up last weekend at Barnes & Noble as I was walking near the CD books. The adorable photo on the cover caught my eye....they had a display of the CD book out in the open. Being an avid animal and cat and dog lover, I couldn't pass it up.

Needless to say, I devoured the book in two days. I loved it. To me it was so refreshing to see such commitment in another dog owner. I have always believed that when you adopt a pet it should be part of the family, and it is a lifelong commitment. You don't give up and get rid of them, just because of hard times or problems.

I applaud Mr. Grogan, and his family, for being the kind of people who love and care for their dog friends and for writing such a heartfelt tribute to his pal, Marley. Pets ask for so little and return so much.

I have had many cats and dogs and I always get a kick out of the commercial on TV for a new ziplock dog food bag for a certain chow...they use the expression "Dogs Rule". How perfect. There is nothing quite like having a pet cat or dog , whether they have impeccable manners or not.

I laughed and I cried and I understood everything that Mr. Grogan had to say. I have lived in Georgia and spent a lot of time in Florida so I felt a special connection to the Grogans when they were speaking of the culture here and the thunderstorms--and how dogs, cats and their people hate them.

All in all, Mr. Grogan's writing is clear and interesting and down to earth. I couldn't put the book down. It is a joy.

I even went so far and to visit the website he has listed in the book. There was an email address to write to him, which I did, and I was absolutely amazed when Mr. Grogan wrote back to me three hours later to thank me for my nice comments.

Do yourself a favor and read the book.....you'll close it in the end and your heart will feel like it is too large to fit inside your chest.

I was interested in reading this book, only because I recently got a puppy, he is now only 5 months old. I am a lover of all things Bob Marley, so of course, I named my puppy Marley, after Bob Marley. So many people had been telling me to read this book because of the crazy things the dog did, and the fact that this dog and mine, shared the same name. So I did. First, I was really surprised to find the reason his owners called him Marley, you wouldn't believe why... I guess we were thinking fairly the same. Anyways, I couldn't help but laugh, and laugh, and laugh at the crazy things this dog did. It was amazing, because he reminds me of all the things my dog does and puts me through, keep in mind that mine is only 5 months old.

This book was awesome, making you laugh and cry with the family as they recall the life of their beloved dog Marley.

How many of us get a dog as "practice" before trying to have kids, wanting to make sure we can successfully care for another living thing (and keep it alive) before taking on the ultimate adult responsibility of parenthood? John Grogan's extremely personal, heartfelt, and openly honest book perfectly explores the ups, downs, heartbreaks, failures, and joys experienced on the road to parenthood and most especially how our beloved dogs, well-behaved or like Marley, enrich the process and sustain us on the journey with their loyalty, empathy, and love.

This book is the ultimate love letter to our pets, how they help us develop into the parents, and people, we become, and how they enrich all of the relationships in our lives. While I know it sounds trite, you will laugh, you will cry, and you will hug your dog for dear life during the course of reading this book.

Anyone who loves or has loved a pet that was more than a pet will love this book. It reminded me how much I love my "fur babies" and that I should never take them, or their love, for granted. My only recommendation is that you make sure you have plenty of tissues because this book will bring you to tears, from laughter and sadness.

Laughed all the way through it, but I still wonder about these people, if they had started when Marley was a pup there wouldn't have been quite so much exitement. And I do believe they forgot to let Marley know they were the Alfa dog in the house, not him. But it was a good book, didn't want to put it down.

There were a lot of moments to love in this book if you are a dog lover but there are almost as many moments when you want to yell at the author for being a bad dog owner. Many of Marley's quirky traits are due the ignorance of the owner. Yes, you will cry but your life will not be changed.

This book brought back so many memories of my dog and the great times we had together. I read, laughed, cried and took Marley straight to my heart. Reading Marley and Me was like looking through my life. As newlyweds we brought home a Chinese Pug puppy who chose us. When I became pregnant and put on bedrest she refused to leave my side. Food and water were brought to her and she only left my side when carried to the backyard by my husband for her to have a bathroom break. She went through two pregnancy loss with me. And loved the two babies we finally brought home. She and I had 12 of the best years of my life together. I even had to take her to work with me to stop her howling and crying every day while I was gone. Marley and me brought all this back. This is the best book I have read in years. The book went miles beyond what the movie did. I loved the book but I don't know if I can read it again and go throught the emotions. It took me 2 days to read this book. I could not put it down. Marley's story will change your life.

It is a story of life lived to the fullest, a heart driven by loyalty and a family's commitment whatever may come. Shouldn't that be the way we live our lives?

Being an owner of a 2-year old chocolate lab I could relate to almost everything in this book. At times I felt like I was reading about my own dog. Any dog lover, not just lab owners, will enjoy reading Marley and Me. You actually start to feel a bond with Marley and you will laugh, get angry, and cry right along with the Grogans. I enjoyed reading this book immensely!! And even though my chocolate lab can drive me crazy at times, after reading this book it helps you to remember just how special they really are and how much they mean to us!! A wonderful book! Two thumbs up for John Grogan (and Marly too, of course)!!!

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 read this book in 1.5 days, which is really hard to do in my household, with the kids school, after school activities, work, husband, and the volunteer work we do. I read while getting ready in the morning at lunch, during the socccer games rest times, during ballet lessons, using the toothpaste as my 'page holder downer' while I blow dried my hair. That's how AWESOME this book it.

Before Marley and Me, I don't really recall a book that had me go through the motion of EVERY emotion humans feel. I've never laughed so hard, I've never been mad so much, and the feeling of sadness almost outdid one of my favorite books. This is such a heart warming, well written, so worth reading book!

I had a hard time wanting to read this book. I'm not sure why because every time I picked it up, Marley was making me laugh and reminding me of my own dog, who often acted the same way. There were times where the author seemed to be talking more about his own family life than life with the dog, which is what the book is about.

Though you know it's coming, I still did get teary eyed at the end, which surprised me because I thought that I would feel nothing, as I had in the chapters leading up to the inevitable. Over all, a good read, especially for dog lovers.

Marley & Me is a great book. I connected with the stroy in a way I didn't think was possible. I don't own a dog right now, and the one dog that we have owned from puppyhood is living with my parents. Through Marley's owner, I felt like I was there for the whole ride. From that first fateful meeting right up until the end. This was a book that made me laugh and cry.

John Grogan is a wonderful storyteller. Through him, we see Marley for what he was and not some dog that deserved sainthood. We see him as he was: an energitec ball of life that got himself into some interesting situations. The one certainty with Marley was that he lived and loved with a ferocity that one only wishes can touch their lives.

I was disappointed, just a collection of not-terribly-amusing anecdotes about a family dog. There seemed to be a lot of filler. Most of the book was about the dog's puppyhood, 1991-1993, one gets the impression that the author didn't get around to writing about the experience from that time until 10 years later, so there isn't a good flow to the story, for me.

This is a true story and one of the best and funniest dog books I have ever read. Marley was a purebred Labrador retriever, but a huge, strong, saliva-spewing, tail-whipping, property-destroying, goofy, lovable oaf. Read about how he ran off, pulling his master and mistress' table behind him at an outdoor restaurant because he wanted to get at an ultra-pampered and high class female poodle on the other side. (He almost made it.) Read about how even a steel cage could not contain him and keep him from wreaking havoc in the house during thunderstorms. And read about how he completely captured the hearts of his owners.

The story is set in South Florida and is about a couple who decide to get a dog to see if they are ready for parenting. The premise of the story is that if they can take care of a dog it will be good preparation for caring for children. Marley, the dog, is a "wild child" and the story revolves around the day to day antics of Marley and his relationship with the couple. The story is light and easy reading.

Anyone who has ever lived with a dog, particularly a lab, should treat themselves to this book. I grew up with a black lab that could have BEEN Marley, so the book made me laugh out loud all the way through it. There's the obvious sad moment, but if you need a book that will entertain you, pick up these pages. You'll be glad you did.

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.

Animals are truly a part of the family, and the author does a great job of including Marley in the history of his burgeoning brood. If you liked this, I'd also recommend "The Art of Racing in the Rain."

I loved this book.I have a golden who is just like Marley he gets into all kinds of trouble.So I could relate to this story.This book was very funny I found myself laughing out loud and saying yep that sounds like my dog.This story wasnt just about a dog it was also a story of his wife and him and what they went through to have a baby.It was also a story about them as a newly married couple.This story was very heartfelt.I was so excited when I found out she was finally expecting.I think any person who has trouble conceiving a baby can also relate to this.I will say the end was a real tear jerker.I would definatley have the tissues ready.This book I would highly recommend.Everyone I have talked to says they love the book.My mistake was I watched the movie before I read the book which kind of spoiled it for me.I would recommend you read the book and than watch the movie.I also found the book had more things about Marley and them in it that the movie left out.

Beautifully written, it goes through the entire life of Marley the yellow Lab. It's a great story, but since I'm a professional groomer who has to put up with badly-trained, lunk-headed dogs too often as it is, I really didn't want to read about one more! John Grogan is such a terrific writer, and his love of this incorrigible dog comes through in his great style. I'm just so glad that he's learned since Marley (and hope other well-meaning but somewhat ignorant dog owners come to understand, too!) that there is no reason to have such an out-of-control dog.... Dog Behaviorists can make almost any dog a well-behaved, happy member of any family! But as John Grogan said in an interview, if he'd known that when Marley was around he wouldn't have had this story to write. I'm glad he did.
