“But four years ago I had never known what it was to depend on God to save a soldier’s life because I had never known what it was to be completely powerless in your own strength and knowledge, no matter how much you knew. I had never known what it was to see God’s goodness through the most difficult of circumstances. I had never known that to truly be brave, you must trust ...more

What. Just. Happened?

Okay, honestly, after reading some of Kassie's writing snippets, I should have known that I couldn't get through this book without my heart being laid bare and my emotions shredded. But I certainly didn't expect this book to affect me quite the way it did. Which actually may be a good thing, because if I'd known just how much loss and grief and pain was going to be involved in this story, I might have been more wary about picking it up. This book made me cry hard on multiple

I don't think this is the kind of book I usually would have picked up, but when I met the author in a Camp NaNo cabin and she offered to let me read it, I said sure!

And let me say it exceeded my expectations. Well written, well-edited, and all-around a story well told. For being a topic and genre I don't have a lot of interest in, this book captivated me.

A few of my favorite things about O To Be Like Thee:

- The tone. The story is told in first-person perspective, and I really enjoyed the main ch
In honor of Memorial Day coming up, I was asked to review this book in exchange for an honest review. I feel it's the perfect fit for Memorial Day, as it chronicles the deployments of a soldier who has lost his best friend on the warfront.


Portrayal of Soldiers on and off Duty
The author of this book, Kassie Angle, does a superb job providing realistic depictions of soldiers' everyday lives both stateside and during deployment. I enjoyed watching the main character, Corey, transition be

Wow. I don't even know where to begin. O To Be Like Thee was a beautiful, amazing book!
This book wasn't full of long descriptions of scenery, which I was totally okay with. The way it was written is one of my favorite styles of writing- in depth, passionate, amazing characters! The characters were real and raw.

Typically, a book has one really important "lesson" the readers take away from the book. O To Be Like Thee had multiple beautiful lessons sprinkled throughout the whole thing. It is about
5+ stars & 8/10 stars. This book was not what I expected... but I think it was way better. I was expecting a dramatic, tears-pour-down-your-face book. Instead, I found a beautiful, whimsical, funny, heart-tugging, tears-drop-down-your-face book. It made me cry with emotion, not with drama. It was a beautiful picture of “normal” life as a soldier/medic. I was never really on the edge of my seat (except for when Niel is hurt!!!) but I smiled so often, at beauty or at humour. I loved the characters ...more
