„Armada“ – Ernest Cline
So, I decided couple of weeks ago that I was going to do more exercise by walking – and the best way in doing that was while listening to music maybe. But no – you know me – I am a bookworm – so instead of music – I turned to audiobooks. I have previously said that I do not like them at all – but after reading this book I have forever changed my mind on that.
The plot is like in every gamer’s dream – off to save the planet from an alien invasion using just his/hers skills learned from playing video games.
I can not believe how exciting this book was to me – I liked every last minute of it and I think that I was in the verge of crying a couple of times – because it was just that brilliant.
I think this book is for all people who love spending their time living in some other virtual reality – waiting for their time to shine!
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 a flying saucer.
