The book about Marley sounds so farmiliar to me.Like my dog,Skittles,he just won't stop! He loves to destroy things,not that he even realizing the damage he is doing.But one thing for sure,Marley knows just how to show "humans" what love really is.

Marley and Me is a wonderful book to read. Everytime i read it about Marley and it makes me think of my dog, because they are so much alike. My dog, I used to have was also a lab (but not pure lab though).
My dog, Bud is more like my "hearing" dog, becuase I am deaf and he always stay by me everywhere I go. he will be missed and I stil haave his adorable picture out where I can see it.
This book is an excellent to read and I can't put it down.
I hope you guys will buy this book to enjoy.

This is a story about a sometimes naughty dog, not unlike another naughty dog you've known. No great revelations, no real drama, and absolutely no good writing. Why the bestseller? I don't know. The few stories worth telling could have been stapled together in a pamphlet.
Spend your time reading something else.

Refreshing, hilarious at times, loving, heart-warming,
and the love of a man and his dog who touched each
other's heart and soul.
A dog who was not perfect, but who is.......He had the following to offer to his family and to us.......He was
Loved, cherished, adored, playful, loyal, etc.
I have not been able to stop crying without thinking
of Marley. Animals I feel teach us humans alot
about life, unconditional love, joy, loyalty, friendship,
There is a bond that can't be described, it is felt
from within and the connection is so strong and deep.
There will never be another Marley.......He was unique and one of a kind, and was without a doubt meant
to be in the family who chose him. This was no
accident or coincidence. He was an Angel brought
to John and Jenny.........

I started reading Marley & Me and could not put it down... five hours and 15 chapters later I woke my husband in Bed with my sobbing. He asked me what was wrong.. to which I responded.."we should have named Cooper(our own 100 lbs lab) Marley!" I finished the book three days later, barely able to see through the tears. This is the best man-loves-his-dog story that I have ever come across and has taught me a few things about my own family and relationship with Cooper. I past the book onto my husband and within hours got the call at work about his own crying episode... He was on the train on his way to work when he got to about the same part I was at... He admitted that people just kept looking over when he finally put the book down.... Please share this book with anyone you know that has or that has not got a dog. It will teach you more about yourself and your family than anything. Nicole Fantin

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.
