If you could sum up Armada in three words, what would they be?
Armada? Sadly underwhelming.
Would you recommend Armada to your friends? Why or why not?
Hmm, probably not. Like...its fine? And I recommended Ready Player One left, right and center...but this? No. Probably not.
What about Wil Wheaton’s performance did you like?
Everything. Wil is my favorite reader - he has the perfect reading voice.
Any additional comments?
Armada never quite achieves what it sets out to and instead of paying homage to sci fi classics (such as Ender's Game, as noted elsewhere) it borrows far too much from them. Additionally I never found myself investing in these characters in the same way I did with Ready Player One. It was fine. You might like it. You might not.

Loved it! Ernest Cline writes another engrossing book I can't stop read/listening to. Obviously hard to follow up after Ready Player One and many themes are similar here, but still delightful though at times it did sound a little too similar to Enders Game.
The narration is the the best! Will Wheaton is frickin amazing as the narrator. Different voices and characters come alive and just add and pump up this book to new heights.

Pretty good, hey. A sea of pop culture references again. Story line was a little derivative, but credit was definitely given where it was due. A very pleasant read.
