Armada: A novel by the author of Ready Player One
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 Lightman has never much cared for reality. He vastly prefers the countless science-fiction movies, books, and videogames he's spent his life consuming. And too often, he catches himself wishing that some fantastic, impossible, world-altering event could arrive to whisk him 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 impossible as it seems, what Zack's seeing is all too real. And it's just the first in a blur of revlations that will force him to question everything he thought he knew about Earth's history, its future, even his own life--and to play the hero for real, with humanity's life in the balance. 

But even through the terror and exhilaration, he can't help thinking: Doesn't something about this scenario feel a little bit like...well...fiction? 

At once reinventing and paying homage to science-fiction classics, Armada is a rollicking, surprising thriller, a coming-of-age adventure, and an alien invasion tale like nothing you've ever read before.

Armada (Spanish Edition)
El esperado regreso del autor de Ready Player One, el best seller geek en que se basa la película homónima de Steven Spielberg.

Zack Lightman se ha pasado la vida soñando. Soñando con que el mundo real se pareciera un poco más al sinfín de libros, películas y videojuegos de ciencia ficción que lo han acompañado desde siempre. Soñando con el día en que un acontecimiento increíble y capaz de cambiar el mundo hiciera añicos la monotonía de su aburrida existencia y lo embarcara en una gran aventura en los confines del espacio.

Pero un poco de escapismo no viene mal de vez en cuando, ¿verdad? Después de todo, Zack no deja de repetirse que sabe dónde está el límite entre lo real y lo imaginario. Que sabe que en el mundo real nadie elige para salvar el universo a un adolescente con problemas para controlar su ira, aficionado a los videojuegos y que no sabe qué hacer con su vida.

Y entonces Zack ve un platillo volante. Para colmo, la nave alienígena es igual a las del videojuego al que se pasa enganchado todas las noches, un juego multijugador de naves muy popular llamado Armada en el que los jugadores tienen que proteger la Tierra de unos invasores extraterrestres. No, Zack no se ha vuelto loco. Aunque parezca imposible, aquello es muy real. Y van a ser necesarias sus habilidades y las de millones de jugadores de todo el mundo para salvar la Tierra de lo que está por venir.

Al fin Zack se va convertir en un héroe. Pero a pesar del terror y la emoción que lo embargan, no puede evitar recordar todas aquellas historias de ciencia ficción con las que ha crecido y preguntarse:

«¿Acaso no hay algo en todo esto que me resulta... familiar?»
