HE DIED IN BATTLE. HE WAS REBORN IN VICTORY.
When the alien Mimics invade, Keiji Kiriya is just one of many recruits shoved into a suit of battle armor called a Jacket and sent out to kill. Keiji dies on the battlefield, only to be reborn each morning to fight and die again and again. On his 158th iteration, he gets a message from a mysterious ally--the female soldier known as the Full Metal Bitch. Is she the key to Keiji's escape or his final death?

A well written book
I finished this book several months ago but just noticed I can review it. It is an extremely well written book that's describes things in great detail, but also lends itself to leaving some things to your imagination to picture. I would say it is well worth the price of admission.
Visceral and fascinating
All You Need Is Kill is a well-written sci-fi that packs a punch. It creates an interesting world and a set of time travel rules, but the main character of the story does not get lost in the setting. The soldiers are believably portrayed, and I felt as if I were experiencing the battle with them. I'll be strongly recommending this book to others in the near future.
This book was an excellent read! After watching the trailer for the movie " the edge of tomorrow" I knew I had to read this book. The movie has big shoes to fill, hope it does it justice.
