Marley and Me by John Grogan
After watching the film, I bought the book to read. This is how John Grogan got rich. Writing a best seller and make it a film.
The story is just about an ordinary life of Grogan family. No fantasy, no sci-fi, no made up story. Just his family and his hyperactive dog.
Although it is very normal, maybe this is what makes this book second top at Borders. The story is about the life of a dog in a family. How it change the family.
"Loyalty. Courage. Devotion. Simplicity. Joy. And the things that did not matter, too. A dog has no use for fancy cars or biig homes or designer clothes. Status symbols mean nothing to him. A waterlogged stick will do just fine. A dog judges others not by their color or creed or class but by who they are inside. A dog doesn't care if you are rich or poor, educated or illiterate, clever or dull. Give him your heart and he will give you his. It was really quite simple, and yet we humans so much wiser and more sophisticated, have always had trouble figuring out what really counts and what does not.'' - Page 280.
