Cindy, July 9, 2007 (view all comments by Cindy)
Dog lover or not, you will be charmed by this book, which covers all the emotions from joy to sorrow, but mostly disbelief: how could a family actually endure all the antics of that dog? I found the writing to be delightful and often funny, after all, the author is a columnist by profession. A quick, entertaining read.

S.Elliott, May 5, 2007 (view all comments by S.Elliott)
So, here's the deal: the prose isn't all that well-written, Grogan's not a really "funny" writer (and there were so many places for funny moments to shine -- he failed here), and there are moments where I lost interest in the story of the family, because I just wanted to read about the dog. There is very little literary merit here.

BUT anyone who has ever had a dog will really get wrapped up in the love story between man and dog and family. I just loved Marley. I read the book at night with my own dog sitting near my lap and it really made me appreciate how wonderful a dog can be in the life of a family.

I did cry, because when you're done (and you know how this story will end...come on) you suffer the pain of losing a beloved pet right along with Grogan.

Read it if you're a dog owner. You can read it quickly and devour the love in 24 hours.
