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 book was wonderful.
I couldnt put it down. This dog was the sweetest big hearted fellow with a few behavioral problems.
This is one of my favorite books EVER.
It shows us all that dogs really do know everything about life.
I was so upset when it ended.
It is a MUST READ for all dog lovers!
But honestly, anyone could read it and love it.

Read this in one day, staying up until the wee hours to finish. A loving tribute to a dog, who despite his flaws, was cherished and loved by his human family. A must-read for dog lovers.

I must say, this book made me cry. And everyone I know, LOVES this book. There was a LINE of people waiting to talk to the author at a book show about their own dogs and how much they love this book.

This book is currently at my inlaws house waiting to be read by them. And I bought a copy for my father.

If you have ever loved a dog, this is the book for you! LOVELY writing.

I wanted to read this book before seeing the movie last Christmas. While the movie was good the book was soooo much better. What a wonderful story it made me laugh and cry. I made both my children read it too. Wonderful story whether you're a dog lover or not.

Excellent, easy read. Finished in 2 days. As a fellow dog lover, it was a poignant look at the good and bad of raising a dog.

This was one of the better books I have read. I have a Golden Retreiver, one year old, and I swear he is Marley's brother. I enjoy my dog more for reading "Marley." This is a book that keeps you smiling and sometimes laughing. The love that the family has for Marley is wonderful. No matter what Marley did the family forgave him and loved him even more. Marley is a puppy that never grew up.

I've never laughed out loud so often while reading a book. Marley is incorrigible and completely lovable. Last night I finished Marley's story and cried like a baby while my husband snored beside me...Marley & Me is not just another cute puppy book. 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? John Grogan has outdone himself in writing this book.

GREAT BOOK about a new family and their over-the-top yellow labrador. If you are a dog-lover then you will definitely enjoy this memoir! My fiance and I read this book and it definitely rang true with our lab.

I loved this book. It was so heartwarming and funny. I was crying just after reading the preface. This book made me appreciate my little Jack Russell even more.

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.

Definitely one of my very favorite books ever! Laugh-out-loud funny, yet tugs on your heart-strings...both with real-life situations that we identify with if we have ever loved a dog. I'm keeping my copy, and will certainly buy another copy or two to share.

What can I say that hasn't been said? It's a really enjoyable book that will remind anyone who's owned a pet of not only that pet's freshest moments, but also their most loving. 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."

This book was wonderful, but really made me cry big tears. It is all too real, and any doglover will be able to completely understand the misery the author faced as Marley came to his final days.
