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?

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.
Fun short read..
"All You Need Is Kill" is a fun short read, something one bust through in an afternoon. The influence of Japanese anime is very present and makes it all the more enjoyable, the only downer was there wasn't more to read..
The story was great.
This book became one of my new favorite books, I was so happy that i decided to read it. Now am waiting for the movie to come out (Edge Of Tomorrow).
