thornsilver: (kitty tastes the rainbow)
ArmadaArmada by Ernest Cline

My rating: 1 of 5 stars


I just looked at the back cover praise blurbs of this book, and I really have to wonder--WHAT were these reviewers smoking?

I have tried several times to come up with a coherent review as to how bad this is, but every time I felt totally inadequate to the task. Still, I feel like it is my responsibility to warn you.

Basically, you should only read this book if you are a 12-year old male rabid gamer, who is not much of a book reader (so you will not be turned off by the shortcomings of "Armada" writing style and poor editing), and who somehow managed to not be exposed to a million better interpretations that pop culture already created for this plot.

(Seriously, what were they smoking, and can I have some?)

P.S. And so is this.

Did I offend some kind of fanfic fairy today?

This starts somewhat decently, and then goes purpler and purpler.

Dear fellow fanatics,

This is not AU. It's originfic with some stolen names. Shame on you for reccing it in Gundam Wing fandom.

This is another fic that was recced. The question is WHY?!?!?!

Also, the abuse of Russian language is terrifying.
