A beautiful story about a man and his dog that had me laughing so loud while at lunch that a co-worker came to see what I was doing! It's a touching story any dog lover will enjoy. Even those who do not love dogs will enjoy this book.

This is a totally endearing and heart-warming book! If you have a dog...any kind of dog, but especially a lab - you will laugh your way through this book and relate to the very end. I found myself laughing my way through most of the book and then cried the last 30 pages. It is a must read - a totally light read...perfect for vacation or after a heavy read. Enjoy!

Marley is a member of the Grogan family from the very beginning. He is a part of John and Jenny learning about each other, love, marriage, commitment, parenting, arguing, forgiveness, grief, fear and that it is okay to grow up and then grow old. He may chew up the furniture, but he is there for it all, and through John's stories we learn Marley's lessons and more: to love Marley as one of the Grogans.

Marley and Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog
0 stars -
William Morrow & Company -
by Janet Maslin, The New York Times,
"Mr. Grogan knew the workings of Marley's mind. He makes that abundantly clear in Marley and Me, a very funny valentine to all those four-legged 'big, dopey, playful galumphs that seemed to love life with a passion not often seen in this world.' It's a book with intense but narrow appeal, strictly limited to anyone who has ever had, known or wanted a dog."
by Library Journal,
"Okay, maybe he chewed things and ran into screen doors, but Marley also taught Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Grogan the meaning of love."
In this funny and poignant memoir about a wildly neurotic Labrador retriever named Marley, an unsuspecting young couple come to understand what really matters. Marley had no brakes on his loyalty, exuberance, or passion.
