v6.2.3 - moving along, a point increase at a time

Review: Armada

Armada Armada by Ernest Cline
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was looking forward to reading this book as soon as I discovered that it existed. I really liked "Ready Player One" and this book did not disappoint. The book has a ton of references to (mostly) 80s pop-culture and it indulges the conspiracy theorists that say that the government is preparing us for the imminent arrival of our alien foes. I enjoyed the book, but the ending had me a bit sad - seriously kid finds long lost relative that they thought died in an explosion only to...die in an explosion? Pffttt. OK, I was looking for a happier ending rather than a bitter sweet ending. The next question is this - is there a sequel coming?
