This book definitely gives you a new point of view on life after reading it. The title,These Heroic, Happy Dead, comes from a poem by e.e. cummings. An except of the poem is quoted for the reader before the book begins. It is wrenching, as is the book. There are ten short stories offered in this book. Some take place during war, some after a soldier has returned home. Some are told in the first person, some in the third. There is a humility to the writing which unites the stories. These are very real people we are reading about. i would definitely say give it a good read.

If you want a book that is going to have you laughing nonstop, Then this is your book. It is the kind of book that is funny embarrassing and many emotions. Kate wrote this so amazingly. If you cant think of a gift for you mom i definitely would buy her this book. My mother and i had an amazing opportunity to read this together and we were laughing so much it was such a fun read with my mother.
This book is hilarious. I know some people would be very judgmental of this book because of the fact that it is a bunch of cuss words basically but i loved it. I actually loved it so much that i bought the book for all of my cousins that are in there mid 20’s.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to you. It will really make you think about the choices you make in marriage as well as in life in general. As I was listening I thought how valuable it would be if couples considering divorce would have an opportunity like Marlee had to remember and see the impact their choice will have. I think it is a good book for anyone because of the insight it provides on life, how our choices matter and the importance of remembering the past.
I was given the opportunity to review this book by Moody Publishers
