"A book with intense appeal...tenderly follows its subject from sunrise to sunset, from the ball-of-fluff stage to the heartbreaking farewell." (The New York Times)

"Love you, Marley!"
This audiobook kept me company through a weekend of chores and gardening. I hardly noticed the work! It's warm and human and sentimental; sometimes laugh-out-loud funny and sometimes touching or downright sad. I howled throughout the last 30 minutes!
Ok, so the author (who reads this) is a big soppy mutt and should maybe be reined in a bit on the sentimentality, but he is American, after all. Just wallow in it.
"A pleasant and heart-warming story"
This was a feel-good listen about a loyal and loveable family pet and friend. If you're anything like me, this audiobook will stir thoughts about your own family pet and remind you what incredible animals dogs really are!
Would recommend it as a nice listen for those just getting into audiobooks.
"Big sentimental book"
Loved the story but wished John Grogan had someone else reading. Obviously writing is he forte!
"Laughed so hard I nearly had to stop the car"
This was my first download from Audible, and I was hooked!
I had looked at the book in shops a couple of times and put it back, but it is really well suited to narration by the author, which significantly gilds the lily.
It's not just comedy, it's the tale of a dog's life, but when I played the first couple of hours on a long car journey not only did the time flash by, but I seriously thought of pulling off the road twice for fear of losing control of the car, I was laughing so much. Very highly recommended.
"I could not stop listening"
This book had me gripped from the minute I started listening. As I walked to and from my norwegian class John Grogan kept me company with a wonderful story, from the moment Marley entered their lifes and until the inevitable parting through death. The book was narrated with a real sense of feeling, it was more than a simple reading, there was much humour, seriousness and eventually sadness portrayed in the voice of the owner of this screwy dog and listening to this audiobook was probably far better than simply reading it. In contrast to many other audiobooks, it was hard to be distracted away from John Grogan's voice, the emotional tones in his voice kept leading me back into the story. I believe I laughed when he laughed, and certainly cried when he cried. I like the fact the author did the narration. It really made this audiobook worthwhile. I would recommend this audiobook to all, not just dog lovers. From me it gets a ten out of ten.
This is an audiobook not to be missed.
"Heart warming story"
This was a truly heartwarming story that had all the best elements - tears, laughter and suspense! That may sound cheesey, but the wry sense of humour that this story is told with prevents that, and makes it throughly enjoyable from start to finish. It also made me feel a LOT better about my own dog-training struggles! I definately reccommend this to anyone!
Completely predictable and dull.
