And yet his heart was pure. Just as Marley joyfully refused any limits on his behavior, his love and loyalty were boundless, too. A dog like no other, Marley remained steadfast, a model of devotion, even when his family was at its wit's end. Unconditional love, they would learn, comes in many forms.
2006 Quill Award Winner
"Grogan's chronicle of the adventures parents and children (eventually three) enjoyed with the overly energetic but endearing dog is delivered with great humor. Dog lovers will love this account of Grogan's much loved canine." (Publishers Weekly)

I was skeptical about this book at first...but after 2 minutes of listening, I was hooked. My wife and I listened to this book during a recent road trip and loved the story of the trials and tribulations of Marley and his owner. After listening, we were ready to go get our own "marley" :)

Read this one!
The story is great. Like everyone else says, if you are a dog lover, you can't miss this one. I'm not sure how the "behind the scenes" thing works for picking the right narrator, but it can literally make or break a book. Had the actual writing not been so enjoyable, I would never have made it through. What a poor idea it was for the author to narrate his own book. The only 2 books that (for me) were an exception to that were Eat Pray Love and The Kite Runner.
I would have enjoyed this book much more if I had read it instead of listening to it.
