Marley & Me by John Grogan

No. of pages: 340
Rating: 10/10

Synopsis: John and Jenny were just beginning their life together. They were young and in love, with a perfect little house and not a care in the world. Then they bought home Marley, a wiggly yellow fur ball of a puppy. Life would never be the same. Marley quickly grew into a barrelling, ninety-seven pound steamroller of a Labrador retriever, a dog like no other. He crashed through screen doors, gouged through drywall, flung drool on guests, stole women`s undergarments, and ate nearly everything he could get his mouth around, including couches and fine jewellery. Obedience school did no good – Marley was expelled. And yet Marley`s heart was pure. Just as he joyfully refused any limits on his behaviour, his love and loyalty were boundless, too. Marley shared the couple`s joy at their first pregnancy, and their heartbreak over the miscarriage. He was there when babies finally arrived and when the screams of a seventeen-year-old stabbing victim pierced the night. The heartwarming and unforgettable story of a family in the making and the wondrously neurotic dog who taught them what really matters in life.

Review: I absolutely loved this book, it made me laugh out loud in some places with Marley's escapades, and it dearly reminded of Zebbie, our crazy pet black labrador from my teens. It's definately something I would recommend, especially for animal lovers. The story draws you in from the very first page, and you feel all of their ups and downs with them. It was fantastically written and I just couldn't put it down because I had to know what happened next! A very well deserved 5/5 from me for this fantastic book.
