After finishing this book I found I really had very little to say about it. I thought attending my book club might help, but not so much. It seems most of us had little to say about it, regardless of our various levels of enjoyment. I found this striking considering there seems to be a lot of intere...

I'm not sure that there are enough sci-fi thrillers out there. Maybe we should get James Patterson to churn out a few dozen this year, or maybe someone can point me in the direction of a few dozen authors like Hiroshi Sakurazaka.People may be aware of All You Need Is Kill because of the film adaptat...

I decided to read the book after seeing the film last week. Both have the same premise but they are different in treatment and ending, in a way I prefer the Japanese version. It could easily have been presented in a graphic novel format (which exists) than the prose it was written in.I have a little...

Military scifi that was badly written and had awful characters. The only redeeming quality is that it was still possible to create an entertaining movie from this mess of a book.

I read this in anticipation of the Edge of Tomorrow movie coming out this week. I'm really not a Tom Cruise fan, but this movie looked really good (and I do like Emily Blunt). I found it was based off a book and decided to pick it up to read prior to seeing the movie. For some reason, I had it in ...

I started reading All You Need Is Kill after a few friends recommended it to me. The only thing I knew about it was that a soldier dies and must live the previous two days over and over again. I was extremely, pleasantly, surprised at the direction this book took. At just around two hundred pages ...

"That's the thing with books. Half the time the author doesn't know what the hell he's writing about - especially not those war novelists." All You Need Is Kill is a military science fiction novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka and which follows the tradition of western science fiction works such as The Fore...

While this book is short, Hiroshi Sakurazaka packs a lot of awesomesauce into it. The future setting with the mech warriors and a lingering war with an alien species that is technologically advanced creates this rich backdrop for the inner turmoil of Keiji’s repeatedly dented head. At first, Keiji j...

I have to say, All You Need Is Kill has to be one of the most unfortunate names for a novel I’ve ever seen. It sounds like the title of the worst Bruce Campbell movie ever made, and that it also manages to get a Beatles song lodged in your head for an hour or so is just a tragic side effect. What ...

This was interesting and different. The protagonist is a soldier who fights alien invaders with a suit of armor known as a "jacket." His problem is that he keeps dying and then coming back to battle again. And then he meets the supersoldier known as the Full Metal Bitch. Why does he keep coming back...
