El esperado regreso del autor de Ready Player One, el best seller geek en que se basa la pelicula homonima de Steven Spielberg.Zack Lightman se ha pasado la vida sonando. Sonando con que el mundo real se pareciera un poco mas al sinfin de libros, peliculas y videojuegos de ciencia ficcion que lo han acompanado desde siempre. Sonando con el dia en que un acontecimiento increible y capaz de cambiar el mundo hiciera anicos la monotonia 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? Despues de todo, Zack no deja de repetirse que sabe donde esta el limite 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 que hacer con su vida.

Y entonces Zack ve un platillo volante. Para colmo, la nave alienigena 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 esta por venir.

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

"?Acaso no hay algo en todo esto que me resulta... familiar?"

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

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.

Ernest Cline

Ernest Cline has worked as a short-order cook, fish gutter, plasma donor, elitist video store clerk, and tech support drone. His primary occupation, however, has always been geeking out, and he eventually threw aside those other promising career paths to express his love of pop culture fulltime as a spoken word artist and screenwriter. His 2009 film Fanboys, much to his surprise, became a cult phenomenon.

These days Ernie lives in Austin, Texas with his wife, their daughter, and a large collection of classic video games. Ready Player One is his first novel.
