Présentation de l'éditeur

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?

Now a major motion picture starring Tom Cruise!

“Science fiction for the adrenaline junkie. Reads fast, kicks ass, and keeps on coming. Buckle up and enjoy.”
-- John Scalzi, author of Old Man’s War and Fuzzy Nation

About the author:
Hiroshi Sakurazaka was born in Tokyo in 1970. After a career in information technology, he published his first novel, Modern Magic Made Simple (Yoku wakaru gendai mahou), in 2003 with Super Dash Bunko, a popular young adult light novel imprint. There are now seven volumes in the series, and it was adapted as a manga in 2008 and as a television anime series in 2009. Sakurazaka published All You Need Is Kill with Super Dash Bunko in 2004 and with it earned his first Seiun Award nomination for best of the year honors in Japanese science fiction. His 2004 short story, "Saitama Chainsaw Massacre," won the 16th SF Magazine Reader's Award.

In 2009, All You Need Is Kill was the launch title for Haikasoru, a unique imprint dedicated to publishing the most compelling contemporary Japanese science fiction and fantasy for English-speaking audiences. New York Times best-selling author John Scalzi declared All You Need Is Kill to be a novel that "reads fast, kicks ass, and keeps on coming," and it has proven to be one of Haikasoru's most popular titles. Sakurazaka's other novels include Characters (cowritten with Hiroki Azuma) and Slum Online, which was published in English by Haikasoru in 2010.

In 2010, Sakurazaka started an experimental digital magazine AiR with Junji Hotta. He remains one of Japan's most energetic writers of both light novels and adult science fiction.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 All You Need Is Kill, ça envoie du pâté 31 mars 2012
Par jyuri
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Difficile d'écrire une review sur All You Need Is Kill sans spoiler, mais en résumé, ça envoie du pâté. Ceci est une review à chaud, écrite par quelqu'un qui a terminé son pâté il y a tout juste quelques heures, au beau milieu de la nuit (impossible d'attendre jusqu'au lendemain matin pour connaître la suite). L'illustration de couverture (de yoshitoshi ABe) et la 4ème de couverture (qui en dit ni trop ni pas assez, juste ce qu'il faut pour vous apâter et ne pas déflorer l'histoire) m'avaient attirée, et je n'ai pas été déçue. J'écris cette review pour ceux qui se demanderaient encore si ce bouquin vaut le coup.

Concernant la traduction anglaise : ce qui est bien avec les romans japonais en version anglaise, c'est qu'ils ne sont traduits qu'une fois (par opposition aux version françaises qui sont souvent traduites de l'anglais, rarement directement du japonais). Je ne suis pas fan des troubles traductions qui sonnent faux, et je garde un souvenir mitigé de la VF de Dark Water que j'ai lue... Je n'ai pas lu All You Need Is Kill en japonais, alors je ne peux pas dire si la traduction est bonne, fidèle, mais en tout cas, elle est très bien écrite. C'est truffé de réflexions et de commentaires savoureux, qui m'ont fait rire sur des passages pas franchement drôles (pour les personnages). Je ne sais pas ce qui est de Sakurazaka et ce qui est du traducteur, mais en tout cas cette version se lit naturellement, comme si le roman avait été écrit directement en anglais. Donc : GG author et GG translator.

Concernant le roman : le début en particulier est très "graphique" (ça se dit, en français?

3.0 étoiles sur 5 un manga sous forme de roman 8 juin 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
J'ai acheté ce roman après avoir lu des critiques positives sur certains sites.
Je suis allé jusqu'à la fin du livre pour en connaître le dénouement, mais sans trop de plaisir : j'ai eu le sentiment de lire un manga sous forme écrite. Des personnages improbables mis en scène dans des situations qui n'ont rien a envier a un manga pour adolescent.
L'idée derrière le scénario est intéressante mais pas assez creusé à mon goût.

TL,DR : a lire si vous aimez l'action, Blame! et les ambiances sombres. A éviter si vous avez aimé Mars la rouge ou si vous chercher des romans plus fouillé.

J'ai été d'abord attiré par l'annonce de l'adaptation cinéma de ce bouquin avec Tom Cruise. Je ne le regretté pas, mais les prémisses de ce roman font des adversaires des êtres invincibles...mais finalement vaincus dans un esprit de videogaming triste. Très bien mais aurait pu mieux faire...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Nothing Better 27 septembre 2009
Par L. Robokoff - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I am a United States soldier. Being that I really cant stand to read war novels or anything military related. In fact I like to read anything that can get me as far from reality as I can.

I was looking in the public selection on the bookshelf and I noticed this title staring me down. The cover art was brilliant. Big suit of cybernetic armor with Japanese style of art. I said to myself this book has to be good. I know your not supposed to judge a book by its cover but I did.

I took it to my rack and began to read it. I was shocked to find how similar it is with our real world yet so far apart I felt like I was in another reality.

It had all the basics of the military in it. The Japanese 301st ID and the United Stated special forces. It was also interesting to see the military tactics used portrayed in this novel.

This book is Excellent for anyone who just wants to get away for the day or any anime scifi war zone action buff. I picked it up and couldn't put it down. Though short, I think this book was worth more than a lot of legends we know today.

Well worth the price.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Groundhogs Day meets Starship Troopers 2 août 2009
Par G. Markwardt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Groundhog's Day meets Starship Troopers is the best way to describe the story in All You Need Is Kill. It's a whole lot of fun and a wild ride. At just about 200 pages it's an exciting quick read that's just begging to be flown through. The only thing that puts me off is the $14 price tag on the cover that's a little steep for a 200 page paperback but it's definitely a lot of fun if you're a sci fi or anime buff.

Par N. Helfinstine - Publié sur Amazon.com

It's too bad the English edition didn't keep the interior artwork from the original Japanese light novel. Even without it, this is an excellent book. Without giving away more than is on the back cover: Private Keiji is a green recruit, about to face his first battle against an implacable and incomprehensible alien foe. He dies, only to wake up and do it all over again. And again. And again. How many painful deaths can he face? Is he trapped alone in a personal hell, or is there a way out? The ending works quite well; like most good war novels, it refuses to allow an easy "and they all lived happily ever after!" cop-out.

Really, the point of the book is about suffering, and how people face it. The old saying is that "a coward dies a thousand deaths, a hero dies only once". But not poor Keiji: whether a hero or a coward, he dies over and over and over...

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Publishing flaws mar otherwise standard fair 8 juin 2014
Par Heartbreak 01 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I knew of Sakurazaka's previous work of Gendai Mahou, but didn't know he wrote this. With upcoming adaptation of movie version (and expectation of source material butchery), I decided to read ahead. It's an ok read but nothing spectacular. It has interesting premise and details here and there, but the story approach is rather typical Japanese light novel way which this book is. Reminded me of Kirito from SAO. But that's not the real problem here.

Some of decisions made by the publisher got in my way of fully enjoying the book. First of all, use of casual and strong languages changed the tone of the book entirely - I can guess which word was changed to which, and it should have been read drier. There are typos here and there, name orders are mixed, and some phrases were direct translation of Japanese which didn't really make sense in English (ex. 'flags'). Another thing is that they pulled out all the illustrations save the cover page. This book is supposed to be a type of Japanese pulp fiction called Light Novel and they usually include illustrations, some of them in full color. Whether it being insensitive negligence or licensing issue, they should have included them intact - these make up for visual description of details. Assuming it had average amounts for this type of novel, we are probably missing about 5~7 pages or so.

Even with all this complaining, it is still better story than Edge of Tomorrow (I watched the movie...) and i did find it somewhat enjoyable, so try it if you will. However, if you have ability to read Japanese, I recommend getting the original version of the book - you may obtain this through Amazon JP.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Neat concept, mediocre execution 21 mars 2014
Par Seven Kitties - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I suspect a lot of my blahs with this text come from translation issues, because there's WAY too much exposition in this novel, these infodumps that just absolutely stagger the forward movement of the plot.

It's a shame, because the plot's actually pretty compelling, or at least the idea behind it is neat. But I found it hard to summon any real emotion for any of the characters, like or dislike. The worldbuilding is great, as I've come to expect from the author's previous works, but he fails on characterization.

One thing that bugged me like nothing else was that every time a female character is introduced, the story absolutely positively must stop, to throw us a few paragraphs rating her relative attractiveness and the size of her boobs. This from a narrator we're supposed to think of as a pretty nice guy.

There were a few really great scenes, such as the fight in the cafeteria, and when he writes those shorter sections, that move the plot along fast, they are compelling and vivid. You just have to slog through needless bits of reported backstory (like the pages and pages of Rita's history which could be summed up as she likes coffee and pigs and is fighting because she lost her family) to get to them.

If you want really compelling sci fi battle stuff, that does WAY more accurate and gripping a job of suit-combat, you can't beat Heinlein's Starship Troopers. That was the standard by which I measured this book and, well, you can see, it didn't measure up.
