From the author of Ready Player One, a rollicking alien invasion thriller that embraces and subverts science-fiction conventions as only Ernest Cline can.
Zack_x000D_ Lightman has never much cared for reality. He vastly prefers the _x000D_ countless science-fiction movies, books, and videogames he's spent his _x000D_ life consuming. And too often, he catches himself wishing that some _x000D_ fantastic, impossible, world-altering event could arrive to whisk him _x000D_ off on a grand spacefaring adventure.
So when he sees the flying saucer, he's sure his years of escapism have finally tipped over into madness.
Especially because the alien ship he's staring at is straight out of his favorite videogame, a flight simulator callled Armada--in which gamers just happen to be protecting Earth from alien invaders.
As_x000D_ impossible as it seems, what Zack's seeing is all too real. And it's _x000D_ just the first in a blur of revlations that will force him to question _x000D_ everything he thought he knew about Earth's history, its future, even _x000D_ his own life--and to play the hero for real, with humanity's life in the_x000D_ balance.
But even through the terror and exhilaration, he can't_x000D_ help thinking: Doesn't something about this scenario feel a little bit _x000D_ like...well...fiction?
At once reinventing and paying homage to science-fiction classics, Armada is_x000D_ a rollicking, surprising thriller, a coming-of-age adventure, and an _x000D_ alien invasion tale like nothing you've ever read before.
