Review

Praise for "Ready Player One: "
Enchanting "Willy Wonka" meets the "Matrix." Its geeky characters are geeky cool. And its action is imaginative, always cinematic.[Cline] even weaves a sweet romance into this hero-vs.-villain tale. "USA Today"
The grown-up's 'Harry Potter the mystery and fantasy in this novel weaves itself in the most delightful way, and the details that make up Mr. Cline's world are simply astounding."Ready Player One"has it all. "Huffington Post"
A rollicking, surprise-laden, potboiling, thrilling adventure story...the best science-fiction novel I ve read in a decade. BoingBoing.com
Ridiculously fun and large-hearted Cline is that rare writer who can translate his own dorky enthusiasms into prose that's both hilarious and compassionate. You'll wish you could make it go on and on." NPR.org
""
A smart, funny thriller that both celebrates and critiques online culture... layered with inside jokes and sly references. "San Francisco Chronicle"
An addictive read part intergalactic scavenger hunt, part romance and all heart. CNN.com
Incredibly entertaining a geek fantasia, 80s culture memoir and commentary on the future of online behavior all at once. "Austin American-Statesman
""

A thrilling coming-of-age story.
"Entertainment Weekly"
Nerd-gasmic another science fiction tale with a Comic-Con's worth of pop-culture shout-outs.
--"Rolling Stone
"
An amazing novel [that] proves Cline has the ability to blend popular culture with exciting stories that appeal to everyone.
" Associated Press
"
Mixes"Star Wars," "The Last Starfighter," "Independence Day"and a really gnarly round of"Space Invaders"into a tasty sci-fi stew.
" USA Today
"
A fantastic second novel fans of"Ready Player One," it is time to rejoice.
" Huffington Post"
A joyous, rollicking read will garner Cline an even larger group of fans than the formidable crew he s already assembled.
" Boing Boing"
A great romp Cline (ever the fanboy) is both reverent of and referential to the books and movies and games of his childhood.
" Mother Jones
"
Video games come to life in this witty, extraterrestrial thriller.
"New York Post"
Built like a summer blockbuster Cline recombines the DNA of"Ender s Game," "Star Wars," "The Last Starfighter," and old-school arcade games like"Asteroids"into something that s both familiar and unpredictable. It s a mutant homage to sci-fi tropes past.
"Gawker"
"Hugely entertaining a paean to the videogames of a bygone era, and like "Ready Player One" it is a tremendous amount of fun for anyone who remembers that time and played those games."
George R.R. Martin, "New York Times "bestselling author of "Game of Thrones"
"A novel so fun, you'll want to reboot it and read it again the best novel this gamer geek has read in a long, long time."
Hugh Howey, "New York Times "bestsellingauthor of "Wool"
"Those conspiracies you imagined when you were fourteen turn out to be true in this masterful tale of Earth's desperate struggle against a powerful alien foe."
Andy Weir, "New York Times "bestsellingauthor of "The Martian"
""Armada" proves Ernie Cline is the modern master of wish fulfillment literature - and of reminding us to be careful what we wish for."
John Scalzi, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Old Man s War"
With another winning teen protagonist in Zach, Cline mines the nostalgia and geek spheres just as successfully as he did in his acclaimed debut, "Ready Player One." The works that obviously influenced the story line, such as Orson Scott Card s "Ender s Game" and the films "The Last Starfighter" and "Star Wars," feel like homages rather than borrowings- a rap artist sampling the best beats our there to create an irresistible jam. "Library Journal, "starred review
Cline once again brings crackling humor and fanboy knowledge to a zesty, crowd-pleasing, countdown-clock, save-the-planet tale featuring an unlikely hero, adrenaline-pumping action, gawky romance, and touching family moments. Cline s sly, mind-twisting premise and energetically depicted and electrifying high-tech battles make for smart, frenetic, and satisfying entertainment.
