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 more easily. Until Marley & Me, I hadn’t read a book in more 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 more than just Marley, it’s a sweet family story, that’s what I love about it.
The language in this book was spot on, it was easy to read and was extremely intriguing. The story itself made me realise how much I love my dog, who is turning 9 this year. From the start of the book you coud tell the book would be great. Marley and me made me laugh but boy did it make me cry. The book was relatable and made you feel as though you knew Marley as your own dog. By the end of the book Marley was a part of your family as well as author John Grogan. Words cannot express how much I love this book. It was a lovely mix of Mareley's life, but at the same time the Grogan family's life.
This is probably the best book I have ever read, reason beimg it was beautifully written and was most intriguing.
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 film...the 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 more!
I have three cats each with their own personality none could ever be placed with another family...they 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 end...I 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 has...maybe this book can explain it better?
Loving this book so far. I really loved the film and as i did with a dog's purpose, i wanted to read the book too. The author tells the story beautifully and i am so pleased i decided to buy this. Very happy to recommend.
