Sunny's PicksNormal high school kid by day, top-ten high score gamer by night, Zack Lightman is not sure what to think when a real spaceship (straight out of his favorite game, no less) appears at his high school. Has he gone crazy, like his late father? Or is there more to this video game, and sci-fi pop culture throughout history?

 
True to his passions in geek culture, Ernest Cline has saturated ARMADA with references to sci-fi culture throughout our history, from TV shows and movies, to books and video games, with MMORPG once again playing a major role. 
 
This is NOT a sequel to Ready Player One. It is purely sci-fi set in our modern day.

Sunny's Picks Sunny: Ensign Dahl has just been transfered to the Intrepid, the UU's flagship. It's a sweet post, until he notices how strangely the crew are acting. The senior officers are avoided like the plague, and there's a disturbingly high mortality rate on away missions. Dahl doesn't want to die, but he doesn't want to hide either, so he and his friends set out to solve the mystery behind the Intrepid before they join the ranks of the red-shirted dead.

 

A fabulously entertaining book that had me hooked from the prologue.
