کتاب همه کاری که باید بکنی کشتن است

اثر هیروشی ساکورازاکا از انتشارات کتابسرای تندیس - مترجم: سارا پورحسینی-ادبیات داستانی

In a global war between humans and invading aliens, called Mimics, Keiji is a trooper at the beginning of his short career in the army. Despite his high-tech body armour, hes not destined to last long - hes quickly dead. But then hes quickly alive again, as somehow his life is rewound a day. It only makes for prolonged horror for the rookie, but it happens again and again. Each time he gets a better intelligence of what his destiny might have been - can he learn enough each time round to make a difference, and possibly break the loop?

Better than the movie, obviously, because it has a back story on how the mimics came and the Hollywood version is more vanilla yet emotionally exhausting at times. A quick and enjoyable read, nothing too complicated like alpha omega blood transfusion and whatnots. Recommended for those who likes (military) scifi. Now I want to read more from this author.

After finishing this book I found I really had very little to say about it. I thought attending my book club might help, but not so much. It seems most of us had little to say about it, regardless of our various levels of enjoyment. I found this striking considering there seems to be a lot of interesting themes in here to dig into. Yet, are there? Ultimately the ideas in this book seem to be overshadowed by some clumsy narrative choices.

Heres the thing: I thought the first half of this book was far more interesting than the second half. The war scenes were well done, and the repeating days were written well enough they were convincing while not being dull. Keijis gradual distancing from the people around him, and even his own life, was realistic and intriguing. And the brief description of the origin of the aliens was really interesting to me (probably my favorite part, honestly). Unfortunately, the book then swerves in the direction of romance, exposition, and clumsy character development and never fully recovers.

A side note about character, or more specifically the female characters: I found the treatment of women in this book problematic. Every womans description included something about her breast size, and their portrayals were flat and uninteresting. The women exist solely as objects of desire in one fashion or another. It feels very anime, and not in a good way. It only gets worse when Rita goes from being a mysterious and powerful figure in the background to the focus of romantic tension. Its disappointing, and somewhat jarring tonally.

This is going to be one of those weird cases where I thought the movie was better than the book. Judging by the ratings others have given this one I seem to be in the minority, however, so your milage may vary. If you want some quick and dirty action, without much real depth, this might do the trick for you. If youre hoping for insight, or rich characters, you might want to give this one a miss.

Live. Die. Repeat.

Sue me for admitting this but I honestly like the movie better. I simply cant resist Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise

For an action-packed book, this is a surprising quick read. I finished in 4.5 hours and I really wanted more of it.

I love the actions. Its ass-kicking. Keiji is immediately in action in the beginning of the book. I imagine that if anyone is in the middle of a full blown battle, the individual would be spitting out curses, crying for mummy and pissing themselves. Those are what Keiji did. So its realistic. He started out as a simple new recruit with no idea about battles and gore, and a bit cowardly then he turned into a full fighter as the story progresses. To my delight, this book introduces Ritas character more deeply than the movie did. She is the perfect type of badass heroine. Her past was horrible because of the Mimics. She had firsthand experience with them. Mimics destroy lives and she made sure she would kill as many of them as she can.

She trained. She fought. She rises and is famously known as The Full Metal Bitch. The saviour of the nation.

Yet underneath that hard shell, shes playful! Something I did not expect reading the book. I warmed to her immediately.

Aside from the good characterization , I also like the writing style the author has. Something about it makes me want to read on and on and not stop.

Overall, if you want a full blown action-packed book to satisfy your fix then this is definitely recommended.

Since both the manga and the novel came out at almost the same time, and theyre practically identical in every detail, I have to assume that it was only a publishing decision to release the manga (in Japan) several months before the prose. Not surprising, really, since most major fiction in Japan is manga.

Being an obsessive anglophile and a fan of the tale in all its incarnations, I wanted to nitpick any plot differences between the movie, manga, and novel. I didnt mind in the slightest that I was rereading the manga. In some ways, the novel was better if only because my mind is allowed to fly free with additional sensory input that doesnt quite exist in the novel. You know. Imagination.

Its a great military novel and the ending is great. I kinda wish that we could have skipped the hollywood ending in the movie, but damn.. you know, its hollywood.

Im going to recommend both this and the manga equally. Theres no practical difference except in the amount of drawing.

Its one of the best nightmare versions of a daydream Ive come across.
