Marley & Me; the review


I bought this book sometime in November last year. I didn’t manage to complete my reading until I saw the trailer of its movie version on tv a few days ago. As I was tempted to compare both versions, I resume my reading and this is my review on Marley & Me, so far…

Marley & Me is John Grogan’s very own true story, dedicated to his Marley the dog a.k.a Grogan’s Majestic Marley of Churchill (as what John used nicknamed him), the world craziest dog. John and his newly wed wife; Jenny adopted Marley as to prepare them for a greater responsibility in raising their own child and facing the toils of future parenthood. Dog = child??? Now whose great idea is that anyway?

Anyway… Marley is not a typical Labrador retriever. He scared of anything that is louder than a popping champagne cork, he is too “happy” and he failed his obedience class, miserably. He drank out of toilet bowl and he has a thing for mangoes. Nonetheless he was loved and treasured till the day he died. Make sure you have lots of tissues while reading it and be prepared to laugh your lungs out at the same time. It’s a good book. Bookworm or no bookworm, you’ll enjoy the book. I am so looking forward to watch the movie.

Akak baru beli 2 buku tapi tak sempat2 nak baca.

Tapi untuk movie ni mmg tak sabar nak tgk. Mari kita beli DVD cetak rompak..ekeke. Boleh ke buat statement mcm ni.? Agak2 kena tangkap tak?

F... go and read the book. memang berbaloi siot. the 1st half of the book memang best. terutamanya part marley makan rantai emas jenny and how john terpaksa ikut marley setiap kali marley buang air besar utk dapatkan balik rantai emas tu. but unfortunately 2nd half of the story mula hambar sebab john lebih banyak cerita pasal kepayahan jenny melahirkan baby kedua diorg dan insident jiran diorg yg kena serang.

but not too worry... on the last half of the story, things are getting better sampai ke hari2 terakhir marley. hmm... too much info eih? arghh... just go n read the book already will you F?
