Dueling New Release Review: Armada by Ernest Cline

        Both DG and Wendy read Ernest Cline’s new release novel, Armada, and it quickly became evident that their enjoyment levels were very different.  It’s not the first time that two Badass Reviewers had differing thoughts on the same book, however instead of a group discussion we thought it may be fun for both reviewers to plead their case for what did, or didn’t, work for them.  This way our readers get both the positive feedback, and the equally helpful negative. Welcome to our first ever Dueling review! Armada by Ernest Cline Genre: Science-Fiction Publication Date: July 14th, [ Read More of this Review ]
