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!!

If you are a pet lover who has, has had or anticipate having a pet you will enjoy this book.
People that love their pets do so with no reservations. There is often a bond so strong that no matter how "bad" your pet is or how much trouble and havoc they create you cannot abandon you love for this pet.
Marley was such a dog. He just wanted to "be a dog" and not an obedient one at that.
A very emotional read, you cannot help but to love this dog.

I loved, loved, loved this book. It will make you laugh and make you cry. Better than the movie but what book isn't? I would read it and then watch the movie. You will fall in love with Marley.

I haven't seen the movie so I don't know how close this follows, but the book was interesting and something I think most anyone could relate to--even if they don't have a dog.
