It's time for another round of book vs. movie! This time, it's The Edge of Tomorrow and All You Need is Kill. Buy the movie. Buy the book. I knew The Edge of Tomorrow wasn’t going to be exactly like the book it was based on, All You Need is Kill, but the book seemed like it was made to be a movie, so I was looking forward to the visual representation.
