Der Trailer zum Film hat mir so gut gefallen, daß ich gleich das Taschenbuch bestellt habe. In English. Liest sich gut, wenn auch nicht ganz leicht für den nicht Muttersprachler.

HASH(0x9e68393c) von 5 Sternen Great, easy read. 14. Juli 2014
Von Tony - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
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.

HASH(0x9e683f00) von 5 Sternen Worth a repeat- unique from the movie 20. August 2014
Von Nathan Van Coops - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I picked up this book after having seen Edge of Tomorrow, the summer blockbuster that was loosely based on this novel. Loosely-based is the key phrase here. I liked the film and also enjoyed the book, but despite the rebranding of the cover, readers should not expect All You Need Is Kill to be very related. Imagine the basic idea for a story featuring a Japanese hero, a couple of plot points, and a bad@ss female secondary character, then remove the main hero character and replace him with an altogether different character played by Tom Cruise. Then completely change the plot, locations, and the ending. That’s about as close as the movie gets to this story.

I was totally fine with it.

Maybe it’s my affinity for time travel parallel dimensions, (something the story uses anyway) that made it easy to shrug the differences off and go along for the ride. In this particular plot, an alternate reality where another character suddenly ended up dealing with the same issues would not be implausible. When making the transition. fans of the film (or book) will still be able to enjoy many of the key elements, most notably the epitome of kick@ss-ness herself, Rita Vrataski-AKA “The Full-Metal B*tch.”

Hiroshi Sakurazaka does a good job of making a compelling story out of what is intended to be a video game plot. Our hero must relive the same battle over and over again in order to defeat a relentless horde of alien enemies. Sakurazaka’s own love of video games inspired the story and it’s cool seeing the creative way he dealt with the repetitive nature of the narrative. Despite the Groundhog Day meets Halo theme, I didn’t find the scenes excessively repetitive. I did notice a little repetition in terms of information I already knew as a reader resurfacing more frequently than I needed, but mostly I just rolled with it. This is a quick read and plenty action-packed so there was not a lot of time to get bogged down by the minutia of the writing. That was nice.

The ending of the story involves a twist that invokes a bit of head scratching, but as the reader I don’t believe you are meant to question it so much as just go with what the author has decided the outcome needs to be. Again, completely different than the Hollywood ending, but that is a good thing. Bonus either way.

Overall, this was a fun ride and one that managed to take a simple concept like video-game-style warfare, and give it enough substance to make for a satisfying read. This book trumped the others on my reading list during its brief run because it gave me likeable characters caught up in an intense world. If I woke up and it turned out I was stuck in an alien-induced time loop where I had to read it again, I wouldn’t complain. A lot can change in a day, even one that is stuck on repeat.

HASH(0x9e5fcdb0) von 5 Sternen Good Listen 23. Mai 2014
Von Anthony Liu - Veröffentlicht auf 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.

HASH(0x9e5c63a8) von 5 Sternen Groundhog Day plus some great war movie plus Aliens equals Edge of Tomorrow 4. Juni 2014
Von AudioBook Reviewer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
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.

HASH(0x9e2ad210) von 5 Sternen Solid Genre Fiction 9. August 2014
Von Lauren - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Hiroshi Sakurazaka’s All You Need is Kill, currently in “book of the movie” reprints as Edge of Tomorrow, is a relatively short military sci-fi march through one man’s development from green recruit to hardened warrior. The aliens arrived on Earth, they adapted a shape to work best in the environment, and they proceeded to destroy as much of the life on Earth as possible. They eat dirt and pass it as poison. Where they swim, the oceans no longer support life. The surviving nations of the world have banded together their militaries to destroy this threat, the Mimics.

All You Need is Kill is a fairly solid piece of genre fiction all told, though it isn’t without its issues. While a number of minor characters were mentioned in the various focus loops, they never really became anything more than set pieces. While this works for the book over all, it keeps the impact of anything that happens to them from really being there. This is the Keiji Kiriya show featuring Rita Vrataski and, while that works really well to show how different Keiji and Rita are as people and giving a great sense of isolation, it also lead to me not really caring if anything happened to the set piece minor characters. I also feel that the reveal about the mimic’s nature made them feel like, I don’t know, less somehow. They didn’t stop being dangerous, it just took away some of the mystery.

I’m also inclined to say that there isn’t a great deal of “show” in the novel. Again, this isn’t to the novel’s detriment for the most part. Having Keiji mostly talk about his development into a Mimic slaughtering machine just further reinforces the feeling of isolation, but I would have liked to have “seen” more of him watching Rita fight to figure out how she does things, more of him interacting with the other members of his squad and then slowly drifting away from them as more loops passed. I’d have also liked to see more lead up to the book’s climax. There was some, but not nearly enough.

So, to wrap it up, what’s the verdict? All You Need is Kill is a solid book that plays well off of the tropes Sakurazaka uses, and while it has some minor issues they mostly work in its favor rather than being detrimental to the book’s story. So, while there were some things that I did not enjoy, I give it a four out of five.
