I love this book. It's funny, heartwarming, heart rending and extremely sad. You'll laugh (sometimes with tears rolling!) and you'll shed many a tear through the sadness of the heart wrenching innevitable ending.
The tag line "a dog like no other" is not completely true as many dog owners will testify, I've had dogs equally as manic as Marley and yes mine too have been kicked out of training classes!
What this book brings home is the unconditional love a dog brings, they are trusting and extremely loyal; yes they may get in the way, and yes there are times you wish the dog wasn't there, holidays are difficult etc. but what would life be like without them? Thatrs the true message of this delightful book.
With the film version now out I can truly say it was OK but lacked alot of the spirit of this book. Get the book, see the film by all means but get this book, you won't regret it.
