Fiction Flashback: All You Need is Kill

Start your week of with some older titles that deserve a second look

All you need is kill

by Hiroshi Sakurazaka

I love the title to this book, so much.  It’s mostly why I read it.

Do you remember the Tom Cruise movie “Edge of Tomorrow”?  Anyway, that movie was based on this book.  It’s a very quick, fun read.   If you like time travel and aliens, you’ll enjoy this book.

All you need is kill

What’s it about?

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?
