Transcript of Marley and Me

Marley and Me
Favorite passage
My favorite passage of Marley gave me an important life lesson that you should live for the moment which is evident in the following passage: “A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.” This was because it really true about life. Enjoy each moment while you can and make the most of it. The writing of this quote was particularly good because with such descriptive vocabulary, the author was able to evoke our emotions and made us connected to the moment.
This book teaches us about human life and experiences by showing us real situations that are likely to happen and how the characters deal with them. You can learn from their mistakes and bad choices that they made so you can prepare yourself a little better for situations you might be stuck in. Also this book teaches to love unconditionally.

I would recommend this book to anyone who has any kind of struggle because this book gives them hope and teaches them that things can get better. I would not recommend this book to young children because it is sad and they would not understand the meaning of the book and only think about Marley dying.
By: John Grogan
In the heartfelt story Marley and Me by John Grogan the main characters John and Jenny Grogan move from their home in Michigan to a sunny town in Florida. After getting settled in their new home, John brings home a golden retriever puppy. They instantly fall in love with him and name him Marley. Over time Marley causes trouble and damages the majority of the Grogan's belongings. They are upset at first but come to accept that he is a typical puppy. while adjusting to Marley, Jenny finds out she is pregnant but loses the child soon after. They go to Ireland for a late honeymoon and when they return Jenny finds out that she is pregnant again and has a baby girl named Colleen. Frightened that Marley was to rambunctious, John asks his brother to watch Marley until he can convince Jenny to let Marley stay. She eventually agrees and they keep him. Over the years Marley becomes a crucial part of the family and though they call him "the world's worst dog," the family stills Marley despite of his behavior. Over time Marley starts to show signs of arthritis and deafness along with having stomach problems that almost kills him. The very last stomach attack made it obvious that he had to be put down so John brings him to the vet and has him put down. The theme of this amazing story is companionship and loyalty. This is because no matter what happened the family stuck together and that's what loyalty is about.
