Marley & Me: Life and Love With the World's Worst Dog (Audio CD) (Abridged)
Marley Me Life and Love With the World's Worst Dog - Audio CD - Abridged Author:John Grogan 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, ninety-seven-pound streamroller of a Labrador retriever. He crashed ... more »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 wit's end. Unconditional love, they would learn, comes in many forms.

Marley & Me by John Grogan is a "must read" for dog lovers. I tried it for my first audio book, and it made the miles fly! But I did have to save the last disk for home - it's hard to see the road through the tears.
It's a true story of a young yellow lab and his family growing up together. Marley is not the perfect dog, but how many of those do we find in real life. There are tender moments that brings a tear to the eye, and there are the hillarious episodes that made me laugh out loud. Then there are the events that I just shake my head and think - just like my dogs.

âMarley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog John Groganâ
I give this book Two Paws Up. Loved it!!! I've listened to it on CD no less than five times.
âMarley & Meâ will take you on adventures that will make you laugh so hard you cry. It is a âMust Readâ for anyone who owns a Labrador. You will develop a special bond with Marley and John. I think every dog owner, or everyone who thought of owning a dog should read this wonderful book.
The only hard part for me was towards the end of the book as Marley aged, just as all lifelong companions do. I could relate to all that Marley (the dog) was dealing with and the questions and answers of John & his family. Like I told my friends, if you need to stop before the last chapter or twoâ¦.you will still have a wonderful read.
For myself, I am happy that I did not stop reading as Marley age. The last chapter touched my heart. If you can deal with the age issueâ¦.get a box of tissues and read on.
Also you may want to note there are two versions of this book:
(1) âMarley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog John Groganâ (First book?)
(2) Marley: A Dog Like No Other - Reading Level: Ages 9-12 (same storyâ¦but age appropriate for younger readers)
I have both versions and I've enjoyed both. This is one book (or 2) I will be keeping for myself and will be buying copies to give as gifts.

We took this on vacation for our 20 hour drive. Both my husband and my eight year old daughter enjoyed it. It was really great to have something that we could all listen to together and then talk about together. I wish I knew of more books like this.
