I got this some time ago, when I first listened to it I loved it. Then audible changed the book without asking or my permission to this movie tie-in edition. It took out a big part of the book showing the main characters training. The book is lacking now, nothing like the story I originally bought and loved. Shame on audible

Would you listen to Edge of Tomorrow (Movie Tie-in Edition) again? Why?
I love military Sci Fi Fiction. This captured the horrors of war while relating it to this generations view of war as a video game. Excellent satire as always from one of my favorite Genres.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Rita, The Full Metal Bitch. It was a short story but her character was Cold as ice and surprisingly vulnerable. Well Realized Bad Ass!
What does Mike Martindale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
His delivery is fantastic. I just thought Keiji should have probably sounded more japanese. It's a silly Knit PIck I know.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It had a bit of dark humor and like most war fiction had some very sad imagery.
Any additional comments?
This was my first Audible DL and I just want to say I'm very happy with Audible.com bringing me listening that I can't get anywhere else.

Although there will be a distance between book and film, some of which which be the interesting clashes and mixing of food stuffs that make this story amusing and accessible, it's still a great, slice of sci-fi silliness, if you only saw the film...the book is still worth reading.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
Needed more story - I guess it would read better in it's original graphic novel format.
Would you recommend Edge of Tomorrow (Movie Tie-in Edition) to your friends? Why or why not?
I couldn't recommend this really. The movie was much better (and was the reason I bought the audio version), it was too short and just didn't make sense to me.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
Average narrator, but I guess he was constrained by the content. Poor voices.
Could you see Edge of Tomorrow (Movie Tie-in Edition) being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?
It already has been made into a movie!
Any additional comments?
Watch the movie or read in it's original graphic novel format, don't waste your time with this.
