Armada by Ernest Cline

Armada by Ernest Cline

Ready Player One was hands down one of the best books I've ever read, it kept me so engaged and forced me to binge-read it to the very end. Coming off of that I thought Ernest Cline would do the same again, but unfortunately, that's not the case.

But that doesn't make Armada a bad book, but it doesn't make it the successor we all want from Ernest Cline. The story starts off slow and builds over time to what seems to be a somewhat rushed end in my opinion. The book tells a story of a gamer, a world class gamer who also is a school boy. It dices with social awkwardness of being the outsider that no one understands and then throws it into a lion's den of sci-fi to add some varying elements. 

The premise of the story (not to give anything away) is actually somewhat believable to a point and is something you can envision to be a reality in 10 - 20 years time and highlights how brutal humans are to one another and that any alien existence who look down on us probably doesn't paint them a warm and inviting picture. 

In conclusion:

*Slow Beginning, Intriguing and exciting middle and a rushed end. This book is probably a great read if it's your first Ernest Cline book but if you've read "Ready Player One" you will be somewhat disappointed with this book.

 

My Recommendation:
