The book is a memoir of sorts about a family and their life with "the world's worst dog". Written by John Grogan, a newspaper columnist by trade, he began writing columns about Marley and then his wife encouraged to turn them into the book we can all enjoy now. Marley is a big golden labrador who doesn't know his own size and strength. He often gets himself and his owners in trouble, whether it's jumping out of a moving car's window, terrorizing the house due to a thunderstorm, or going to the bathroom on a public beach. But like most dogs, Marley passes away and his family realizes that he wasn't the world's worst dog, but the most loyal and loving dog.
I laughed and cried throughout the book. It's a perfect easy read especially for those of us who have owned pets that become family members. It's an experience most people in this world can relate to. I have come back to read this book multiple times and would recommend it to anyone looking for an easy, relaxing, relatable book.
