My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I bought this book, in French, at a garage sell and I was super excited to read it. The book is so well written that from the beginning I could imagine that I was there with them, living all the excitement that one feels when a puppy is brought to the family. Soon I was laughing with tears at all the craziness that Marley was creating around him. I couldn’t help but question myself if I would be able to keep such a ‘troubled dog’. I was reminded over and over again, by Marley’s sweet behavior that no matter how the dog acts, once you decide to adopt you cannot change your mind. A dog should stay with its owner for life, as once he came into the master’s home, he is now part of the family. I fell in love with Marley. He was crazy, and he was chewing everything that crossed his path, he was not listening at all but he was always loving and caring when the time would ask for it. As the writer said at one point, Marley basically shows us that a simple life is a happy life.
