Review: Marley & Me



Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog by John Grogan

With a face like that on the cover, how can you resist? :-)

This is really a simple tale of a husband and wife who buy an overexcited, oversized Lab and the next 13 years that they share. Grogan's brilliantly writes vignettes of the trials and toils of raising Marley, as well as the changes he and his family go through with Marley along for the ride: kids, new jobs, relocating and more.

Marley is a great "character", and it's not hard to imagine yourself alongside Grogan during some of these exploits! Though you know Marley won't live forever, the book ends on a hopeful note, rather than a sad one. Some in the publishing industry have already taken to calling this NYT Bestseller "Tuesdays with Marley".

A great memoir of a cutems dog...
