Book Recommendation: Animorphs #5: The Predator
Good Morning Everybody and Happy Friday!
I’d like to announce something of a change before I get to today’s post. Going forward, I will be posting book and show recommendations when they are fresh on my mind. It’s a much better setup than waiting til Thursday to post about.
That being said, today’s recommendation is yet another throwback to the 90’s. Animorphs #5, The Predator.
I gave five animal-morphing stars for this one!
This is the fifth book in KA Applegate’s series Animorphs, and this time we continue the adventure in Marco’s POV. I have to say, Marco is probably my least favorite character so far due to his constant skepticism, but I have to say, his personality is consistent and understandable given his family situation.
This time around, Ax comes up with a plan to steal a Bug Fighter ship from the Yeerks in hopes of escaping Earth to warn the Andalite world about how severe the situation on Earth is. The Animorphs’ quickly set on this impossible mission, with new terrifying near-death experiences to boot.
Will the Animorphs’ achieve their goal, or are they in over their heads?
The action was spot on this time around. The plot took turns that were very unpredictable, and I just love that about this series. Every time I think I know what’s going to happen, BAM! Sudden right turn!
Although Marco is still my least-favorite character, this book helped me understand why he is the way he is in such a short time. Pretty hard to pull that off. Nothing but mad respect for the author and this crazy roller coaster ride that I’m on. Definitely worth a read!
