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.~ taken from Goodreads
Why Am I Waiting On Armada by Ernest Cline?
- I ♥ loved ♥ Ready Player One.
- Again the story is related to videogames and as a passionate (if not regular) gamer I can always relate to that.
- It reminds me of Flight of the Navigator and brings back childhood memories.
So, those are my reasons why I am waiting on Armada. What are yours? Did you hear about Armada before? Will you read it? What are you waiting for?
