ALL YOU NEED IS KILL

STARING AT THE GROUND LIKE A FARMER WATCHING RICE GROW
The best thing about this book is the main character Keiji. He is a very likeable guy. He seems like an everyday average sort of guy. This makes it easy for the listener to put himself in Keiji's place. The story was enjoyable, had a twist at the end and yes it would make a good video game. The aliens are cool, the battle suits are cool and the writing is above average, of course that is hard to tell since it is translated. It is not a five star book, but close and worth $5.95, which brings up my next topic.

The $5.95, unannounced secret sale.
At the time I am writing this you can get this for $5.95, but it will not stay that way. If you cruise through your favorite categories you will find more books for this price, such as Dream Catcher and Hearts of Atlantis by Stephen King. Horns by Joe Hill. I Am Legend by Richard Matheson. There are lots more. You will not get any notice of when these books go on sale. It will not be printed in Red. It might end tonight or tomorrow or a month from now. Last year I bought Battle Royal and Krampus at this low price, today these are selling for around $19.00.

It's a F/U world with F/U rules , so F it.

Military Sci Fi Grind at it's finest

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.
