However, whether or not you are a "dog person", there is still an awful lot to gain and enjoy while reading this book. The memories are so personal and heart-felt, at times you can completely forget Marley has anything to do with the book.

This is a must-read for anyone who has ever loved a pet. Marley & Me, however, is for more than pet people. I recommend it for anyone who enjoys a good story.

I laughed, I cried, I didn't want it to end. As a dog owner, one of which is a black Lab, I enjoyed this book very much and am thankful our Lab isn't quite so manic as Marley.

Definitely one I would recommend to read, it’s not the most interesting, but it’s one of the most heart warming books. But be warned; be prepared with tissues and to hug your own pets at the end. You’ll need to, trust me.

In this auto-biography, Grogan entertains us with his laugh out loud anecdotes one moment, and yet brings us to tears the next. The overall layout, organization, and quality of content, engages readers and leaves them with meaningful life lessons.
