Product Description
Zack Lightman has spent his life dreaming Dreaming that the real world could be a little more like the countless science fiction books movies and videogames he s spent his life consuming Dreaming that one day some fantastic world altering event will shatter the monotony of his humdrum existence and whisk him off on some grand space faring adventure But hey there s nothing wrong with a little escapism right After all Zack tells himself he knows the difference between fantasy and reality He knows that here in the real world aimless teenage gamers with anger issues don t get chosen to save the universe And then he sees the flying saucer Even stranger the alien ship he s staring at is straight out of the videogame he plays every night a hugely popular online flight simulator called Armada in which gamers just happen to be protecting the earth from alien invaders No Zack hasn t lost his mind As impossible as it seems what he s seeing is all too real And his skills as well as those of millions of gamers across the world are going to be needed to save the earth from what s about to befall it It s Zack s chance at last to play the hero But even through the terror and exhilaration he can t help thinking back to all those science fiction stories he grew up with and wondering Doesn t something about this scenario seem a little familiar At once gleefully embracing and brilliantly subverting science fiction conventions as only Ernest Cline could Armada is a rollicking surprising thriller a classic coming of age adventure and an alien invasion tale like nothing you ve ever read before one whose every page is infused with the pop culture savvy that has helped make Ready Player One a phenomenon
