Book Description

29 April 2014
When the alien Gitai invade, Keiji Kiriya is just one of many raw recruits shoved into a suit of battle armour and sent out to kill. Keiji dies on the battlefield, only to find himself reborn each morning to fight and die again and again. On the 158th iteration though, he sees something different, something out of place: the female soldier known as the Bitch of War. Is the Bitch the key to Keiji's escape, or to his final death?

3.0 out of 5 stars Great ideas, but the film was better. 29 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good ideas, not so greatly written - was part of it due to translation problems?...

Many original ideas, and even after having seen the film, I still could appreciate them. However, the writing is often disjointed (with weaknesses in grammar and vocabularly) and there are inconsistencies in the logic.

The film is not perfect but the storyline was certainly improved during the adaptation process.

I don't regret having read the book, but seeing the film is enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, easy read. 14 July 2014
By Tony - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great book, great movie. The book is quite different from the film so it's worth the read and it's an easy one at that. For anyone that is concerned about whether the movie tie in edition is the same as the actual light novel "All You Need Is Kill", I can assure you that the two are the exact same aside from the cover art since I own both editions because I'm rich and can do s*** like that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Listen 23 May 2014
By Anthony Liu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It was better than I thought it would be. Overall I did really enjoy the audio book. Read through 80% of the graphic novel before listening to this. You don't get the action packed sequences of a graphic novel, but they add more info to the story. It got more into the hero's head with this version, which is the strength of the book format. It was written in the tone of a solider, which I liked. I know they changed lots of things in the movie, but I can't wait to see it. I think the narrator sounded way to old and American, instead of a young Japanese solider, but they probably did that because most American wouldn't like it the other way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Groundhog Day plus some great war movie plus Aliens equals Edge of Tomorrow 4 Jun 2014
By AudioBookReviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Remember in Groundhog Day with Bill Murray when the alarm clock kept going off with the same weather forecast? And how Murray could remember everything from the previous iterations of the day? That is the best way I can describe this story. Groundhog Day plus some great war movie plus Aliens equals Edge of Tomorrow.

Here we get to know Keiji Kiriya just another solider trying to stave off the impeding invasion. Technology has expanded considerably to what we know of now, and all soldiers are give a suit that gives them super strength, fast reaction times, more stamina, etc. However, they can still be killed, as Kirya was. Then something strange happens were he wakes up with this strange feeling that his dream wasn't a dream, but couldn't be sure. However, they can still be killed, as Kirya was. Then something strange happens were he wakes up with this strange feeling that his dream wasn't a dream, but couldn't be sure. Until Kiriya starts to be able to recite what was going to happen and when from his dreams.

Then he tries to get smart. Realizing that he can remember everything that he does he begin training. Training to become more like the most decorated American solider, the Full Metal Bitch. He slowly begins to realize that he has more in common with her than he would have ever thought before. He then starts to piece together what must be done get get unstuck from the loop he is caught in.

Several laugh out loud moments. Great action scenes. I was able to connect with Kiriya and wish he would just figure it out. I remember thinking, "He's going to make it out...[heavy sigh]", feeling like my dreams had been crushed. Not too short and not too long. Edge of Tomorrow (Movie Tie-in Edition): All You Need Is Kill will be great for giving you your science fiction military fix in a hurry.

5.0 out of 5 stars was enjoyable and easy also 14 July 2014
By L. Rolland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I would recommend this one to anyone interested. You get past the quirkiness of it being a 'foreign language' translation very quickly. If you believe there is a billion other earths floating out there... The premise was not a big stretch ( for me ).

5.0 out of 5 stars All in a good way. I loved the book 30 Jun 2014
By Arizona NROTC alum - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The movie was different from the book. All in a good way. I loved the book. It was a quick read. I also loved the movie. Both were really good in their own ways.
