Marley & Me


Published in 2005, Marley & Me is a very well-known book written by John Grogan. The book tells the interesting  story of the author and his family, focusing on their adventures with Marley, their adored but naughty Labrador Retriever. 2

The difficulties and rewards of having a extremely rowdy and adorable dog are lovingly and frequently humorously described in this book. The story traces Marley’s life all the way  from puppyhood until adulthood, highlighting the impact he made on the Grogan family. It looks at love, friendship, and the unique connection that everyday people may have with their dogs.

Marley & Me is said to have touched a nerve with dog lovers and anybody who has had to go through the highs and lows of pet ownership. It was highly approved of and even went on to become a bestseller. The touching tale of Marley and his family became much more popular when the book was eventually made into a film in 2008 starring Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson, both award winning actors who have starred in many family favorite movies or shows.
