Marley and Me by John Grogan

Again, I feel I’m coming a little late to the party on this book, finally reading something that’s been suggested to me be several others. But it’s the April pick for an online discussion I’m part of so the timing was right to read it.

As many others have said, I laughed and cried while reading Marley’s adventures. I am a cat owner, but have relatives with dogs and I think the feelings pet owners have for their charges are universal.

I was surprised (and impressed) by how much of his personal life the author shared (although it is subtitled life and love with the world’s worst dog) and think it’s also the story of a marriage. And that’s probably what has made it so widely read. Because it’s not just about the dog.

I’ll be interested to see how the movie version of this story turns out.
