The worst book ever?

Ladies and gentlemen,

allow me to introduce

Certain E. Cline decided to write the worst book ever, and he succeeded brilliantly.
I would call Fifty shades or Twilight masterpieces if compared to this one. By the way, this book received quite positive reviews, at least judging from goodreading stars:

Allow me to quote the very first review from the page from Ariel:
Believe me when I say I was ready to love this book. Ready Player One was so great! And this was about video games and alien invasions! I jumped in to Armada ready to be caught by an awesome net.
… and instead fell flat on my face. On concrete. And then a piano fell on me.
Exactly so! I was ready to enjoy this book because you know I love similar plots. Life mixed with games, another realities, game-like environment - I thoroughly enjoyed Overlord light novel and many others (except for Sword art online). I really recommend Overlord, by the way.
Nevertheless, such naive and idiotic story was too much even for me. On the other hand, had you ever need a proof that even utterly inferior book might become successful you don't need to search any further. The proof exists and was delivered by Mr. Cline. Congratulations!
