A Marriage in Dog Years: A Memoir Reviews

  • Alicia

    A relatively interesting memoir

    The author has written an engaging memoir for the first half of the book. From about halfway, the novel was quite repetitive in regard to how horrible her marriage was and her reluctance to leave and the despair that it continually caused her.

    While this was to be a story of the last year of a terminally ill dog, it was mostly about a terminally ill marriage. If the memoir had been condensed a great deal, it would be a fully engaging read from beginning to end. The

    For a memoir, it was good.

    I picked this from May's kindle first list because I normally always read thrillers, and wanted something different. It did have humor, but not as much as I thought, but then again it's about a marriage ending. I am in a happy marriage for almost 30 years now, so I can't relate. I did relate to losing my dog, Jack, a Scottie who gave us tremendous happiness and will always be remembered for loving us through many things, especially the time in my life I was so sick, I a

    AVAILABLE IN JUNE! PRE-ORDER NOW! Author Nancy Balbirer takes us with her on the rocky journey of life as we see her joy filled marriage filled with hopes and dreams blossom then fizzle, at the same time her beloved, terminally ill beagle struggles to defy the odds and live another day. This touching true story is told with honesty and humor, stirring up so many different emotions...well written in the author's voice, it had me crying and laughing. I'd like to compare this story to SJP's Divorce ...more

  • Shir

    This book tried really hard to follow in the footsteps of Eat, Pray, Love with regards to Elizabeth Gilbert's discussion on her failed marriage. I respected the author's process here, and felt bad because Ira seemed like such a wonderful, supportive dog who didn't deserve all of the heartache his human was experiencing. It seemed like the author had spent more time trying to save her dog's life than trying to salvage her marriage, in the hopes that saving Ira would save her marriage. Except that ...more

    I was drawn to this book because I too lost a dog I loved and was sure I would immediately connect with this story. I liked the juxtaposition of the dog’s life and the marriage but I didn’t connect with the characters very well. Probably just me, but there were a lot of stories and extra details that didn’t add much to the story.

    Wow. It’s a very messy book (being a memoir and all - real life doesn’t tie up all the loose ends) - it’s a whole deep dive of mess and honesty and raw emotion. I struggled... half the time I was thinking ‘why doesn’t she leave him?’ and the other half recognising my past self in her inability to leave and the avoidance/pretending it’s all fine/flipping between taking full responsibility and not/wanting to be the perfect person for someone else and absolutely hating myself for it. Overall it mad ...more

    The book is well written. However, I find the narrator exhausting. I lived through a difficult (first) marriage, much worse than this one. Now that I’m happily remarried, I’d really rather not relive the angst. She careens from one philosophy to another to try to make sense of her life and marriage. Not sure if I’m going to finish this one.
