Gamer Geeks Heaven


 

Armada is Ernest Clines much anticipated second novel. Like his book Ready Player One, this one is a computer gamers dream. Lucky for me I am a avid gamer and therefore thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Early reviews of this book is split with some calling it rip off of "Enders Game". For me this is like comparing apples and oranges, yes they are both fruit but that is where the resemblance ends.

Armada delivers a fast paced story based around a fictional PC gaming series that is not what all it seems. As before Cline shows us why he is the Gaming Geeks pinup Idol. He seamlessly meshes together a fantastic story mixed with gaming mythology and lore. Here is a man that has raised story telling and gaming to a whole new level.
