Rating: 4/5
Date Read: December 2008

Marley and Me1. When John and Jenny decide to get a dog (to test their parenting ability), they have no idea what they were in for. Marley becomes a very energetic dog who always seems to be causing trouble. Yet the family can’t help but love him.

2. Um, sobfest. I’m sure you all know that this one is a tearjerker by now, but I can’t not mention it. I read it in the car on a road trip and I just sat there in the passenger seat sobbing. I might be tearing up just thinking about it now.

3. As a lifelong pet owner and animal lover, I really appreciated the memoir. The trouble Marley causes along with the joy he provides is a wonderful look at life with a dog (although Marley is a bit extreme).

Three Things Thursday is a weekly feature where I review books I read prior to blogging by sharing just three things about them.

*I chose Marley and Me this week to keep with the memoir theme I accidentally had going this week.
