Welcome to the team, David. I’m sure you’ll be a reliable Animorph for the rest of the series! XD  Not gonna lie, Coleman and I have both read this book many times before and hold it in high regard, as most fans do. That said, we will pick it apart because there are still plenty of things wrong with it, primarily in the way the characters handle a few situations. You’ll hear all our gripes in the episode, but the question is will you agree with us or not. But we’re really excited to finally get to review some of our favorite books in the series, and we’re going to try and get these episodes out a little bit faster. We’re also quickly approaching the section of the series where we’ve both skipped a lot of books, so it’s going to be a lot of fun getting to the ones we haven’t read yet. Anyway, let’s all get pumped now for the start of THE DAVID TRILOGY! #DavidTrilogy  #IWantThatBook

This speak: We start our review by praising the hell out of this much loved book and by dissecting our new character David, Coleman makes a bold statement right off the gate about David, why getting the Escafil device back matters so much and why the Animorphs need to do whatever it takes to get it back, another visit from Eric is always a nice surprise, how we’re going to lose our Russian listeners, we discuss birds breaking into bedrooms, why the Animorphs waste a bunch of time blundering around trying to steal the blue box back from David, the whole stupid sideplot where they try to stop an email from going out, how stupid Visser Three is, David being a coward, and about a million ways the Animorphs could have done everything in this book better! All that and more in our review of Animorphs #20, The Discovery.
