Marley e eu Comment

  1. This is a mediocre book written by horrible dog owners.Marley sounds like an amusing guy but I think pets are like kids you don t get nearly as much joy from people telling you stories about their kids as you do from watching your own I have dogs whom I love very much, and often things they do I find to be very entertaining even though others might not derive the same level of enjoyment if I were to tell them all about it For this reason, there are no parts of the book that are truly funny Perha [...]


  2. This is the first book that has ever, and I emphasize EVER, made me laugh so hard and cry so much All in one book Marley Me is the predictable and somewhat cliche story about a dog and his owner If you pick up this book expecting a unique story, put it down and look for something else If you pick up this book expecting to learn about how to train your dog, put it down and look for something else If you pick up this book wanting to read a touching, but very entertaining story about being a dog ow [...]


  3. SO my mom sent me this book because she thought I was all down after a stupid break up, and she wanted to cheer me up I wasn t really down I was totally fucking pissed off I went into reading this book seeing red Maybe that s affected how I interpreted it, but I really think this John Grogan guy and his wife are complete idiots There is no reason to ever buy a dog, ever Ever There are dogs dying all over the country because people abandon their animals or neglect to have them spayed neutered, an [...]


  4. I have a dog my first and like all good, over excited, enthusiastic first time parents, when I got it I had every intention of reading every single goddamned book on the topic Marley Me by John Grogan was the next on a long and ever expanding list It had been on the bestseller lists for quite a long time and so I was expecting it to be a light, enjoyable read The kind palatable to the masses and easily read between Mitch Albom and Nicholas Sparks.With Marley Me, I was expecting a dog book, a man [...]


  5. To be honest, I couldn t even finish this because it was so stupid Life and Love with the World s Worst Dog Owner For crying out loud get this poor dog some exercise and a trainer I hate books and movies like this The zany antics of poorly trained, poorly raised, poorly managed pets and their self centered, moronic, owners I m always afraid stories like this will encourage other ill informed, clueless people to adopt dogs they can t handle.I ve owned dogs all my life and never had problems like [...]


  6. Ahhh I loved this book I laughed, I cried, I remeneniced I thought about my beloved black labrador, Duff Just like John said, They really are they when you need them Duff was always there for me Walks down the hill, over the streets, down by the Golf Course, with the sunsetting Sitting on the couch together watching a movie Sitting out on the hill, at my sunnyspot on the hill, writing or listening to music Duff was always there Sometimes he slept on my bed, but usually he had too many fleas I fe [...]


  7. You have to read books your grandma gives your for Christmas Having said that, Marley s antics were mildly amusing I guess , but I couldn t see past the fact that the owners were simply moronic Example they know their dog goes bananas and tries to claw its way to perceived safety anytime thunderstorms hit, tearing the house to shreds in the process So what do they do to prevent it from ripping apart the house in the event of a thunderstorm in their absence They put it in a little dog crate while [...]


  8. What a beautiful book I read this too soon after losing my 10 year old golden Labrador to cancer, so I found it made me extremely emotional It s very well written and some of the antics of Marley are so typical of a young Labrador Hilarious, heartbreaking and beautiful, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.


  9. This is a book for dog lovers, and for those who have been loved by a dog The Grogans may not have been the best dog trainers in the world, and they may have made a common mistake of buying their dog from a backyard breeder, but what they did right was they loved their dog, and stayed devoted to him through his whole life, from puppyhood to old age In this throwaway society, where many people consider pets to be disposable , to be dumped at the pound when they are no longer a cute puppy, or when [...]


  10. I loved this book My now husband bought it for me last year for my birthday When we had started dating, we found and loved a little mutt named Stella When she was killed, our world was rocked We felt foolish for being so upset over a dog Neither one of us could stop crying for weeks We didn t even have her a year when she died This book made us both feel so good becuase it reminded us why we were so devistated It was not only because Stella was a PERFECT dog It was that she was there when we fel [...]


  11. Os Mestres Do Amor IncondicionalSeja na vida real, no cinema ou na literatura, os c es conquistam nos Partilham alegrias, consolam tristezas s o seres ador veis e uma fonte inesgot vel de amor incondicional.S o peritos e mestres nessa arte e Marley n o excep o.Por estranho que pare a, o conv vio continuado com o c o faz de n s, humanos mais humanos


  12. This is just the kind of hilarious, fun book I like to read, but because I saw the movie, I almost never read books AFTER I ve seen the movie For me it s the other way around I read the book and see the movie, usually to see how much better the book was.It s been a long time since I saw the movie, so I gave the book a chance, and I m glad I did the humor and endless comedy was a blast Marley destroyed countless pieces of furniture and screen doors He routinely ate things like parts of their ster [...]


  13. This is one of the handful of books I have read where I have read the ending first See, Marley and Me is a book about a dog And books about dogs, especially the ones written by men, usually end with the dog dying They describe the whole life of the dog, make me fall in love with it, and then it dies So, after I had fallen in love with Marley the dog, I decided to read about his death first, and then read about the rest of his life, leaving him at a point where he is still young and healthy and I [...]


  14. A dog has no use for fancy cars or big homes or designer clothes Status symbols mean nothing to him A water logged stick will do just fine A dog judges others not by their color or creed or class but by who they are inside A dog doesn t care if you are rich or poor, educated or illiterate, clever or dull Give him your heart and he will give you his I never dog ear pages in the books I read I like my books to remain looking as new as possible and I enjoy perfectly pressed paper with no hint of we [...]


  15. This book was great and gave me a real insight on what it would be like to have a dog As a person who would like to own a dog when they get older, this book was a real joy because it shows how even though having a dog can be hard work, it pays off with the love and loyalty that dog gives Most reviews of the book praise it but some criticize it because they say John and Jenny were terrible dog owners because they didn t treat Marley like a child This is silly because Marley didn t need to be trea [...]


  16. In a world of bosses, you are your own master I rarely ever give 5 5 ratings on a book Let alone on a memoir But if I have to be honest,Marley Medeserves it all Hell, if I could rate this than 5 stars I bloody damn would.This is the first non fiction book that I truly ever find delightful It was such a joyride I laughed out loud, snickered, made strangled squeeeeeee noises, and even shed a tear or two at the near ending I m the most dramatic, soppy reader ever and this review will be just that [...]


  17. El mejor amigo del hombre tuvo una muy buena adaptaci n en el 2008, y con la lectura por fin del libro que inspir la pel cula completamos este c rculo que se cierra en mi vida ocho a os queriendo leerlo y por fin, despu s de la muerte de dos de mis compa eros de vida, pude hacerlo Todo llega cuando tiene que llegar, y agradezco seguir creciendo con lecturas como esta y con mis amigos de cuatro patas.


  18. OK, I m a complete sucker for this book Yes, some of the anecdotes are things that every pet owners experiences, and are not really that compelling as a result And some parts of it are about life with a dog than the life of a dog It was well written though, and really funny at times Marley sounds like he was a complete love.And that is why it was so tough to read the end Yes, you know how it ends But Grogan s description of the canine aging process is really accurate Dogs do live in a compresse [...]


  19. Okay, I read two dog books in a row because my book club decided to do this for our February meeting That said this book made me laugh so hard I cried and then, of course, I cried at the end as one must with all dog books if one loves dogs I am the former owner of four Marley s a black Lab, a yellow Lab pure breed AKC registered and probably Marley s first cousin , a chocolate Lab, and a Lab Husky Wolf mix They all cost me thousands of dollars in vet bills, household and yard improvements and re [...]


  20. This guy has a pretty bad case of Precious Snowflake Syndrome He s the kind of guy who appears to have a pretty average life with a pretty average wife and kids Lives in an average house Makes an average wage But that s all too boring so instead he has to act like he has the Craziest Dog in the World His dog and everyone else in his life is a precious snowflake beautiful and unique than anything else in the universe.His dog s digestive tract cleans gold better than any chemical His dog is just [...]


  21. I was fully prepared to give this book 3 stars before I started reading it based on seeing the movie but the book really touched my heart I laughed and yes I cried listening on CD might not be a good idea because driving home from work with your eyes full of tears makes staying in the lines hard Because each book we read is affected by the experiences in our lives that we bring to the reading, I m not sure if someone who has never loved something furry would love this book It would be interestin [...]


  22. A dog has no use for fancy cars or big homes or designer clothes Status symbol means nothing to him A waterlogged stick will do just fine A dog judges others not by their color or creed or class but by who they are inside A dog doesn t care if you are rich or poor, educated or illiterate, clever or dull Give him your heart and he will give you his.Just like Marley, my Golden Retriever, Alfey is a classic example of the above mentioned fact All dogs are One just needs to see.A Great piece of work [...]


  23. At first glance, John Grogan s Marley and Me appears to be a feel good novel for the dog loving population However, as an active member of that population, it is a disappointing example of the multiple wrongs many people engage in when raising a puppy.The secondary title, Life and Love with the World s Worst Dog would be appropriate with, Ridiculous Decisions of the World s Worst Dog Owners as its title Let me explain The autobiographical story begins with a young Grogan and his wife contemplat [...]


  24. Quick and adorable reading I loved the way John Grogan pictured every moment of Marley in his life and the lives of his family with a lot of emotion and the right amount of snark I actually read this book 4 times.I was reading the other reviews of this book i should never do this and i m seriously baffled Have you guys really read the book John was an amazing owner He was patient to a shocking point He tried to get Marley a trainer,but the dog only managed to learn at his own pace,and only with [...]


  25. I liked this book a lot, because Marley is so funny and I couldn t even believe that a dog could act like that It was really sad at the end though, but I which I knew what happened at the end It kinda left at a cliff hanger It was a really good book through and I think anybody who reads it will love it This si what I though about Marley and Me.


  26. Marley is a lovable lab and the structural element around which Grogan writes his own coming of age story Grogan and wife are reporters in south Florida, and take on the responsibility of a pooch as a way for his wife to see if she is up to the challenge of handling a baby We follow Grogan as he tries to gain some control over the rambunctious Marley He leads us through the life of a young couple as they try and fail to have a child, then try and try again, successfully He shows us the changes i [...]


  27. This book should have been titled World s Worst Dog Owners This book just make me plain mad Poor Marley was just abused Left alone in a garage without AC for 10 to 12 hours Left alone with his fear of thunderstorms At one point, the callous female owner doesn t want him any What the heck This book was awful It just makes me think of all those unwanted dogs left to fend for themselves because owners don t want to deal with them any Don t understand how this book became so popular It gets worse, t [...]


  28. What a sweet, cute book I ve seen the movie quite a few times, but the book was so much better as usual.


  29. I hate dogs Always have, always will I cannot at all understand the time, energy and devotion that people so willingly dish out to a furry monster who will wreck their home and treat the greater world as one big public bathroom and not even grow to be a contributing member to society and take in their owners in their old age which would at least justify it.So in that sense I may not be the best person to review this book I certianly wasn t interested in the premise, which is, couple gets psycho [...]


  30. I read this years ago and had rated it on here without saying anything I actually came to the listing because I wanted to note something and noticed I d said nothing about the story.This is the dog book of all dog books right The one that started it allThis is a beautiful story and even though we have to wade through the bad dog books to get to the great ones these days I think dog lovers everywhere have to thank Grogan for sharing Marley with the world.I d urge any dog lover to read this and ac [...]
