Canine Side-Trip Redux!

Posted: July 27, 2006 in Current Reading

Alright, I finished Marley & Me, and now I know what the fuss was about…

It’s a very sweet tale about one of the most rambunctious, undisciplined dogs you’re ever likely to encounter. Grogan’s style is very funny, though occasionally sappy, but I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt on that being a dog owner myself. Sometimes there’s just no way around waxing sappy when talking about your pets.

It has at least a three hankie finish, I’ll warn you of that now. Dog lovers be prepared! But it does end on a high note, lest you think it’s a downer. Though it’s sad, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

The verdict is a thumb’s up for Marley & Me, for a lighter sort of summer read that animal lovers especially should love.

And here’s to you, Marley, and all other dogs with indomitable spirit.

Now who’s waxing sappy?
