Book Review: Animorphs #25,The Extreme
I had a nice relaxing day to myself continuing my writer’s retreat in Hermann. I am really on a role with this wine-buying kick and super excited about bringing some great stuff back for my friends.
I’ve basically been reading and writing, rinse, repeat for the past few days, so naturally I finished another Animorph book today.
This time it was #25, The Extreme.
I gave this book four freezing stars!
This time around, we are in Marco’s POV, which I tend to enjoy most times. Turns out, I really did, four stars worth at least.
Everything’s returned to normal for now, and Cassie and Marco are hanging out in the school gym when Erik the Chee comes up and starts a conversation. “Oh no,” says Marco. And he’s right. There’s a rather nasty development in the works on the Yeerk side.
You see, they have a base somewhere that is working on converting all water on Earth to be adaptable for Yeerk pools. Not so great. With the world’s water supplies at stake, Marco and the other Animorphs jump into action.
I have to say, this was much better than the last book.
As always, the characters are pretty good and stick to their personalities. This mission includes all of them, and everyone got a good amount of screen time. I will note that Marco didn’t seem quite as funny as usual throughout, though I did still burst out laughing at several of his sarcastic jokes.
The plot, while interesting did end up falling a bit flat, which is why I knocked off a star. The stakes are high, yes, but a lot of the book ended up being more about them learning to survive in the cold extremes. There was a small plot hole where they could’ve clearly tried to acquire a morph earlier on but didn’t. That being said, there was a lot of action and fun along the way, and I was totally there for the thrill of it!
I had quite a bit of fun with this one and look forward to the next. Hoping to squeeze maybe one or two more in on my Animorphs readathon week!
That’s a Wrap!
Thanks for stopping by, and happy reading!
