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 brought home Marley, a wriggly yellow furball of a puppy. Life would never be the same.
Marley quickly grew into a barreling, 97-pound streamroller of a Labrador retriever. He crashed through screen doors, gouged through drywall, and stole women's undergarments. Obedience school did no good - Marley was expelled.
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 wits' end. Unconditional love, they would learn, comes in many forms.

I've never really listened to books, an avid reader I enjoy turning pages and losing myself in a good book. I got this book because it was one I've already read and thoroughly enjoyed. I wanted to see if some else narrating helped me enjoy the book more or less than if I read it myself. I have to say the narration of the book was well done and helped me visualize each event as if someone was describing it to me first hand. I enjoyed the freedom of being able to listen to it as I was driving or sitting on my patio enjoying the evening. This turned out to be such a great first time, I think I may just pick out a new book to listen to.
