Armada by Ernest Cline
My Rating: 3/5
For fans of Cline’s previous novel, Ready Player One, this will seem familiar. Zack Lightman is an amateur video gamer with exceptional skill in an alien invasion game, Armada, only to discover that these aliens are very real and his skills are needed to save the world.
A fun read for nerds everywhere. You will want a working knowledge and appreciation for 80s arcade games and music, an obsession with Enders Game, and the ability to forgive the author his tangential monologues on both.
