Animorphs: The Experiment

Welcome to Thought-Speak, your number one source for the most outrageous opinions and theories on the Animorphs book series! This week we’ve got a standalone entry amongst the series that doesn’t do much to further the story of our heroic group of adolescents and their morph-happy adventures. But the books that let us delve deeper into Ax’s perspective are always interesting and humorous, and this story is no exception. It even delivers one of the darkest moments of the series so far with a slaughterhouse scene that’s to die for. For maximum enjoyment of this episode, it’s recommended you eat a finely-cooked steak doused in A1 sauce with a cheeseburger on the side while you are listening! Mmm-mmm, I’m getting hungry just thinking about it…

This speak: The plot is hologram-delivered to the team once again from their paranoid android friend, Erek the Chee. This time the Yeerks are up to something beefy, and it’s the Animorphs (and Ax!) job to investigate a few locales and get to the bottom of the Yeerk’s sneaky new plan. All the team knows is that it involves chimps and cows, a laboratory and a slaughterhouse. But first, Ax must somehow manage to pull himself away from his newly acquired television set! In an adventure that feels in part like it was sponsored by PETA, will the Animorphs (and Ax?) be able to crack the Yeerk code and save all the animals? Is the beef industry trying to control us all with juicy burgers? Will Taxxon’s ever have access to equal voting rights and a fair dental plan? Find out!  All that and more when we review Animorphs book #28, The Experiment.
