Armada by Ernest Cline | Wishlist


Dude.

Book Description

Zack Lightman is daydreaming through another dull math class when the high-tech dropship lands in his school's courtyard-and when the men in the dark suits and sunglasses leap out of the ship and start calling his name, he's sure he's still dreaming.

But the dream is all too real; the people of Earth need him. As Zack soon discovers, the videogame he's been playing obsessively for years isn't just a game; it's part of a massive, top-secret government training program, designed to teach gamers the skills they'll need to defend Earth from a possible alien invasion. And now…that invasion is coming.

As he and his companions prepare to enter their ships and do battle, Zack learns that the father he thought was dead is actually a key player in this secret war. And together with his father, he'll uncover the truth about the alien threat, race to prevent a genocide, and discover a mysterious third player in the interplanetary chess game he's been thrown into.

A new book by Ernest Cline! It doesn't come out until July 2014, but that will be here before we know it! Right?

If you haven't read Ready Player One, that is your first assignment.

Are you excited with me? Have you read Ready Player One? Will you be reading Armada?

  1. I haven't read ready player one, but I actually might get them for my boyfriend. These seem like his kind of books (as he's currently playing the new GTA). Thanks for sharing :D.
