Ernest Cline’s ‘Armada’ Drowns in Video Game And Sci-Fi Nostalgia

July 15, 2015

For a long while now, I’ve been eagerly anticipating the release of Armada, a book by Ernest Cline whose breakout novel, Ready Player One, remains one of my favorite sci-fi tales. His first book was a timely, fantastic peek into what a VR-consumed society could look like, and though the text was littered with nostalgic references, they made a certain amount of sense within the larger context of the story. Ready Player One also had a depth to it that explored why we have this need for escapism, and the relief gaming can provide. It ends with a pretty complex take on whether or not gaming and virtual lives are a gift or a curse.
