    I first heard of Marley and Me when the film was released in 2008 Yet, despite ten intervening years, I still have not seen the film So when I spotted the Kindle book on offer, I snapped it up as I always enjoy reading the book before any film adaptation.Being an animal lover and the owner of a boisterous collie cross, I fully expected to enjoy this book and thankfully, I was not disappointed John Grogan tells the story of his family s life with Marley with extreme honesty and self deprecating humour There are several genuine laugh out loud moments and others that would melt the coldest of hearts I laughed and I cried reading this wonderful tribute to Marley who brought such joy into his human family s life Quote Dogs are the wonders of life and add so much to ours Amen to that.

    The purchasing of this book was highly irregular for me as I HATE reading books I ve always struggled at picturing the story regardless of how well it s written in my head and would often hope that the next page I turn is the end of the chapter so I could put it down and live to see another day However, there was something about this book that really made me want to keep reading, and I often found myself staying up well past midnight, eagerly desperate to continue as far as I could I have seen the film with Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson many times and that may have helped me picture the story easily.Until Marley Me, I hadn t read a book in than 2 years and that was only because I had to read it for an English exam.There s always been something touching about the story, to me It s than just Marley, it s a sweet family story, that s what I love about it.

    I have really enjoyed reading this book after watching the movie.I completely understand the loss the author felt after Marley died.Our Boxer Monty was beautiful, kind of dumb and loved living life He bounced all the time He was such a huge part of our lives for over 12 years through job changes, house moves, a baby born, children reared, just like Marley in this book.

    I watched the film based on the book first and was wonderfully surprised at how close to the book the film was A great story of a unique dog who was a dear member of the family I cried at the end of the book as well as when I watched the filmthe author truly loved his best friend and this book is a beautiful memoir of this wonderful dog including his faults Which actually made me love him even I have three cats each with their own personality none could ever be placed with another familythey are such a big part of ours Each cat has their faults, quirks and odd behaviour that made us fall in love with them from the beginning, I can understand how the author felt at the endI was devastated when one of our cats died suddenly, but unfortunate society doesn t place any importance on the effect losing one of our friends hasmaybe this book can explain it better

    Being an animal lover it was almost a given that I would love this book, and I have to say that I did I found myself laughing out loud at the book and sympathising with the Grogans the description of the scene at the outdoor cafe was so close to home If you are not an animal lover you will find the book amusing and enjoyable If you do have pets then you will relate to every part of this book to the bad behaviour, to the funny scenes and to the commitment that having a pet brings.As per the previous reviews, this book has a moving side I do most of my reading on the train commuting to work and when this book had me in tears it was slightly embarassing Definitely worth reading, thoroughly enjoyable, and will touch the deepest buried of the darkest hearts Recommended with 5 stars

    There always has to be that one little group of folks who are negative I was extremely disappointed to read the negative reviews on this book.However, it doesn t influece my awesome love for this book You will fall in love with Marley and his antics Like other reviewers, I laughed, cried and then laughed What I loved most about this book was that even when I thought I would drown in my own tears and couldn t go on with it, Mr Grogan found a way to make the reader close the book with a smile and a warm heart If you are not a dog lover, please read this book anyway I gave it to my mother who could take my dog or leave her and she s now ASKING to babysit my little bad dog.Thank you Mr Grogan Another wonderful book to go along with this one is Giorgio K s bestseller The Quest

    I read this book in paperback in my native language years ago It has been a long time until I decided to purchase the e book version on Kindle.It has been a wonderful journey full of laughters, love, amazement and by the end, came sadness as well It left a good and long lasting taste, nevertheless If you want a truthful tale of the craziest, sloppiest, and derpiest dog, this is the right book for you.
