John and Jenny are newlywed and enjoying every minute of married life together. When the thought of starting a family comes into play the young couple believes that their not quite ready to raise a child. As a solution, Jenny decides that they should buy a dog for practice. Agreeing to this plan, the couple gets a puppy with the name of Marley. The puppy, who in weeks grew to become a 97 lb Labrador retriever is much more than they can handle. The book Marley and Me tells the story of a dog who was full of joy and loyalty and became a huge part in a young couple’s relationship. This book also tells how a dog had taught a couple what truly matters in life.

I loved this book! It was relatable and filled with so much emotion. It showed the ups and downs of starting a family and ownership. Sure this book was meant to attract readers who love animals, but it had much more meaning behind it. This dog changed the authors life. He taught them so much that you wouldn’t expect from a dog. This book was so heartfelt and personal, yet it was a story that can touch out to anyone, which is why I recommend it to anybody.

I really loved this book . I have already seen the movie Marley and me so i already knew what to expect when it came to this book . I really like how simple and entertaining the book is . Marley a dog like no other is a revised story of Marley and me written for younger kids . I don't know how this can be used in a science class but maybe in a English or litterateur. I think readers can compare what is written in the book to what they actually see in the movie . It was a really good read. ( )

Make way for Marley!

When the Grogan family is ready for a dog, they choose Marley, a yellow furball of a puppy who quickly grows into a large, rowdy Labrador retriever. Marley has a zest for life, and as he grows, so does his enthusiasm. He has an appetite for whatever he can get his paws on—from fine jewelry to underwear—and the one thing he always finds is trouble. Marley even gets kicked out of obedience school! Can this rambunctious pup ever learn how to be a good boy?
