It only makes for prolonged horror for the rookie, but it happens again and again. Each time he gets a better intelligence of what his destiny might have been - can he learn enough each time round to make a difference, and possibly break the loop?

Another update:

Raising it up to 4 stars again. Ive been thinking about this book and the movie nonstop.

Ill be honest when I say I like the movie better. Its action packed, but the heavy military writing drove me nuts. And Im not a fan of ending.....

Rita was awesome in this though. Shes one bad ass chick. You dont wanna piss her off.

Shes seriously one of my top favorite fictional female character.


Just saw Edge of Tomorrow and I NEED this book!!

Its over so fast, I almost flipped back a few pages to see if I had missed a chapter.

But no, I hadnt missed anything. All You Need Is Kill sits you down, straps you in, and ignites a rocket strapped to your chair, and before you know it, youve finished, breathless and heart-stopping, palms sweaty and clammy.

All You Need Is Kill is the novel on which the forthcoming movie Edge of Tomorrow is based. With a cover that looks more like it belongs on the front of an anime-style graphic novel (in which I would have zero interest), I doubt I would have found it, let alone picked it up, but for hearing about it because of the film adaptation, starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. I saw Cruises Oblivian last summer and was pleasantly surprised to find a sleeper film that wasnt a rehash/remake/sequel/prequel/spinoff to some other franchise.

But if it was based on a book, I reasoned, Ive gotta read the book first.

Written in tight, gritty, and succinct scenes, Hiroshi Sakurasakas novel is about one mans existential battle against an alien foe. Keiji Kiriya begins as one more green recruit destined to become cannon fodder against the seemingly numberless minions swarming Earths beaches. Within moments into his first battle, Keiji is dead...and waking up, back in his bunk, the day before the battle.

Repeat. And repeat again.

Its like Groundhog Day, but with scaly, multilimbed, javelin shooting aliens and heavily armed soldiers in armored exoskeletons. Sakurasaka wastes little time, and youre half way through the novel before you realize that youve havent taken a breath since who knows when.

And then Sakurasaka shifts the action, gives background, and lets you catch your breath before driving on for the second act.

If Tom Cruises Edge of Tomorrow fills in half of what Sakurasaka squeezes into the 230 pages of All You Need Is Kill, itll be a killer film. Its why Sakurasaka is my new favorite Japanese writer, and I look forward to finding out if he repeats the feat that is All You Need Is Kill.

A couple caveats. Because the writing is so tight and the story just long enough to hit the novel mark, there are some gaps in the character development. Theres only limited depth to either of the POVs presented, and then that POV is driven heavily by the plot. Also, Sakurasaka can also be occasionally crass and foul, and not necessarily in a manner that contributes to the story. Watch out for rough language.

This was far better than I expected it to be. It is both a modern Kraken Wakes story with a small premise twist, as well as a problem-solution driven tale. I read the whole book yesterday afternoon. I almost didnt read it after the first chapter, but am glad I did.

“He died in battle . He was reborn in victory“.

In the film Groundhog Day, Bill Murray repeatedly wakes up and re-lives the same 24hrs over and over again. Each time the cycle repeats, he learns another valuable lesson about his life. All You Need Is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurakzaka has a similar premise but instead of being set in Punxsutawney it is set on the muddy battlefields of Japan in the midst of a future war.

Alien creatures called Mimics have landed and are attempting to invade Earth. Slowly they are attacking each country trying to discover where humanities weak points lie. Keiji Kiriya is a fresh faced solider who is starting to panic at the thought of his first impending battle. He has never experienced war. He has no idea of what to expect or how to react. His worst fears are confirmed and shortly after the battle begins he is killed only to re-awake back in the army base where he is forced to relive the build up to his death once more. Keiji quickly comes to realise he is trapped in time and no matter how he tries to escape destiny he will always end up on the battlefield.

We also get to see the battle from the perspective of an American female soldier called Rita Vrataski, known by all around her as the Full Metal Bitch. Rita is the quintessential warrior. She and her colleagues are battle hardened veterans and seem to be the polar opposite of Keiji and his friends. As Keiji relives the battle over and over again, trying to discover a way forward, Rita becomes the only fixed constant in his world.

Where this novel excels is by taking a concept that many readers will already be familiar with, in this case time travel, and adding an interesting new wrinkle. Instead of going forward or back in time great distances, the main protagonist is trapped in the same time period, forced to continue reliving the same moments indefinitely.

I was really pleased when I heard that All You Need is Kill has had the movie rights optioned. Though the story takes place in a small geographical area it reads as epic in scale, certainly something that would translate as a real spectacle on the movie screen. My initial excitement for a movie was somewhat dampened however, when I then read that the character of Keiji is going to be ‘Americanized’. This is a great shame as some of the central concepts of the novel will be lost due to changes in nationality. There is an old samurai principle that is mentioned in the novel, ‘Kiri-oboeru’ which means to strike down your enemy and learn. This sort of detail will become irrelevant if the character is no longer Japanese.

Another concern, while trying to avoid spoilers, is that the book ends on a bittersweet note. I do hope this isn’t changed for the film adaption. I would much rather see a faithful adaption on screen than a schmaltzy saccharin sweet Hollywood happy ending.

The novel isn’t terribly long, only around two hundred pages, so it’s a quick read. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys their science fiction full of action but with in-depth characterization.

I finished this several days go and am just now getting around to reviewing it. I think I was expecting a little more from it (probably based on the hype and hoopla of late).

There is some good action here. Be ready for the obligatory environmental guilt that became....well obligatory....a while back. Its here. Also the basic threat is tied into this theme.

There is also a lot of (and yes Ive used this phrase before and so have a lot of people) @been there, done that, got the [email protected] The time theme will raise questions about how it could work. When you get the explanation its kind of a, @huh, [email protected] Their reasoning also brings up another question (view spoiler)[ how could multiple people have all this in their heads and only the final @[email protected] be the real event(s)? (hide spoiler)].

So there will be a bit of @oh well its a [email protected] Just beef up your suspension of belief muscles.

Then theres the ending. It to is one weve seen often and I doubt youll actually find it surprising thus it leaves something to be desired. Its okay.

So I dont hate the book. Im just not real thrilled or overly impressed with it. Decide for yourself. A lot of people really like this one. Maybe if this is the first book where youve run across the plot points I mentioned it works better??? Anyway, as I said decide what you think. I go with a middle of the road, not bad 3.
