Product Description

Review

A book with intense appeal . . . tenderly follows its subject from sunrise to sunset, from the ball-of-fluff stage to the heartbreaking farewell. (New York Times)

The reason Marley & Me has proved to be a bestseller is that it is not just a funny dog story . . . It's a universal story of family life and a publishing sensation (The Times)

Made me laugh so much I pulled a muscle in my solar plexus (Daily Mail)

This is a wonderful, moving book that even non-dog-lovers cannot fail to enjoy. (Mail on Sunday)

Book Description

Is it possible for humans to discover the key to happiness through a larger than life, bad-boy dog? Just ask the Grogans.

Format: Hardcover
I have just finished this book, and I felt as though I have been on an emotional rollercoaster for the last 3 days. This is testemant to how good this book is - as the title of my review states, this book has captured the joy and the pian involved in having a faithful friend. Grogan has managed to illustrate how all dogs have their own unique personalities, and how they are able to utterly transform our lives.

When I was growing up we had a black pedigree Labrador - he was a rescue dog - and he was the world to me. He was with me all through my school years. Reading about the antics of Marley, I was reminded just how loyal dogs are to their owners; how much joy they bring but also how much comittment they are.

This book made me laugh out loud - so much so that in parts I was crying from laughing so hard - and it made me cry buckets at the end. While the majority of the book is a bit of fun, relating the behaviours of a "loopy" dog, there is a serious point at the end. Grogan points out that the loyalty and unconditional love that dogs show their owners should be sought by the owners in their own day to day lives. To find unconditional love to the same extent, but from another person, is a very hard thing to find indeed - people are much too selfish.

As another reviewer said, this book made me wish that I could have encountered Marley, he sounds like a fantastic dog. It has also made me remember my own dog, and the treasured memories I have of him. I wonder if they are both up there, in doggy heaven, causing chaos??...... :-)

Format: Hardcover
Don't ever confuse Lassie with Marley. Minding was something Marley couldn't quite manage - this is despite obedience school and concerted efforts by his adoptive parents, John and Jenny. Marley was a Lab with few of a Labrador Retriever with few of a Lab's characteristics. He was 97 pounds of almost non-stop accidents waiting to happen. Actually, John and Jenny wouldn't have had him any other way nor would we. His heart was huge and his love boundless despite his lack of social graces (sniffing crotches is definitely unacceptable as is swallowing costly uneatable items).

In retrospect, John can remember Jenny's reasoning - they were newly married and she thought having a puppy would be good training to caring for children when they came along. He writes, "If Jenny really only wanted a dog to hone her parenting skills, I would have tried to talk her off the ledge and maybe placate her with a goldfish."

They both had full-time jobs and knew that a dog was a large responsibility. But, they both also had happy memories of having a dog when they were children. So, their decision was made and Marley was their pick of the wriggling, furry litter. Little did they know. (Even though upon first meeting Marley all but chewed his way through John's watchband.)

"Marley & Me" is so much more than the story of a lovable canine, it's the story of a family - how they grew together, their celebrations and their griefs. It's also a tale sure to provoke both laughter and tears.

Format: Paperback
It's about time we get a book like this! Everyone who loves and/or owns dogs will relate and react strongly to this book. And for those who do not know the love of a dog or has never owned one, this will open your eyes to the depth of their love, loyalty, heroism and goofiness that they bring to us. You will also come to appreciate how clever we have to be to outsmart our canine friends and why its smart to have a little reserve set to the side for emergency repairs. You will laugh out loud, cry and cheer Marley and the Grogans through all of their experiences. This story strikes a cord deep within me and I now must reconsider if my own beloved pup has been outranked as the world's worst dog :-) I Would also recommend-' Giorgio Quest '

Format: Paperback
Marley and Me is about the lives of a young family, which centers around their beloved pet labrador-retriever, who under no uncertain terms is a monster of a dog. However, all his bad behaviour is clearly out weighted by the unconditional love he gives his family. For dog owners, particularly labrador and retreiver owners, this book is a definite must. John Gorgan describes the behaviour of Marley so perfectly that you will instantly recognise such behaviour traits in your own dogs, which will make you laugh and smile even more as you remember the times you've shared together.

For non-dog owners, this book is still an absolutely fantastic read. Within minutes of starting it, you will be comtemplating buying a dog. However, you should understand that Marley is an exceptional dog, so if you've already brought a puppy, don't worry too much, it would be very unlucky if you ended up with a dog with all of Marleys less-desirable characteristics.

I myself absolutely loved this book. I ended up leaving mine in Australia with some friends who have a year old Labrador, which seems to have developed a lot of Marley's behaviour. Although, without a doubt, he is a lovely dog. This has left me in a position without the book which made me laugh so much whilst traveling. I enjoyed it so much I will definitely be buying another copy. What could be more enjoyable than reading about the life of an extrodinary dog?
