"Teen outcast Zack Lightman fades in and out of reality. He uses his favorite video game as a mean of escape from the real world-- until the game world spills into his own. Zack thinks he's hallucinating when he sees the ship from his favorite game fly by his school, but it is all too real when he uncovers the mystery of urban-arcade-legend PHAËTON and a secret military organization, the Earth Defense Alliance. Zack, a crack fighter pilot in the game world, joins the EDA as a high ranking officer. Zack struggles with not only adapting to the life of a soldier, but reconnecting with his estranged father and uncovering their alien foe's ulterior motives without the EDA's knowledge. Once the world learns of the impending alien attack on Earth, everyday gamers like Zack band together to take on the ARMADA. Based on novel by "Ready Player One" author Ernest Cline."

I bought this book when it came out, but never got around to reading it.

It's not very good. And I liked Ready Player One, though probably not quite as much as some.

I havent read or listened to it yet but I want to.

Does seem derivative of Last but i understand it's referenced in the book.

Then I feel my laziness has been validated!

I loved Ready Player One as I was reading it, and it was that enthusiasm which prompted me to pre-order the book, sight unseen, and with little or no knowledge to its subject matter. But by the time it actually arrived, and when I read the description, it didn't inspire me to read it. (The purchase was for both myself and my wife and she read it, so it wasn't a total waste.)

Found the experience bla.
