Marley & Me: Life and love with the world's worst dog by John Grogan



This was wonderful holiday reading. It tells the story Marley, a Labrador, who is constantly getting himself into trouble through his disobedience and destructive ways. 


It is brilliantly written by an author with a great sense of humour. 

Grogan sees the funny side of life including his dog’s antics, people who are derisive about his attempts to train Marley, life in general and even the disappointing attempts for his wife to fall pregnant.


If you love dogs, you’ll love this book. More importantly if you have dogs, ridden out the waves of their mischief, and still love them, you’ll love this book even more.


You’ll laugh, and you’ll shed a few tears, you will fall in love not with just the story but Marley himself. It is a tender, yet amusing tribute to man’s best friend.


My rating 5*
