Animorphs: The Familiar

Ladies and gentlemen it is Thought-Speak time once again! If it seems like it’s been a while since our last entry, that must be because of summer. It’s been a doozy for your hosts as we struggle against the many forces of life that conspire against us to slow our progress but again we move forward! And what a treat we have for you today! Joining us once more is the fantastic Andrew, here to give his insight into a book that much of the fandom is divided on. What will the overall consensus be? Memorable or forgettable? You’ll have to listen to find out, and be sure to continue tuning in as Thought-Speak chugs along winding our way down to the end of the series! It’ll happen sooner than you think!

This speak: Jake is having a tough time being leader of the Animorphs (and the leader of Ax). After yet another gut-wrenching battle with the Yeerks, the team is fragmented and tormented and looking to Jake for guidance, but ol Jakey’s not in the mood. Lucky for him, when he goes to bed that night he wakes up in a world where he’s not the leader of the Animorphs anymore! BUT the world is ruled by the Yeerks and the Animorphs have long-since been defeated. Ruh-roh! Join Jake, alone and confused, as he navigates a hellish future-Earth that’s been dominated by the Yeerks, discovers which of his friends are still alive….and which ones have become controllers… All in an effort to return to the past and abort this nightmare reality. But is there a way for Jake to return to the life he knows and continue the fight? Well there’s like more than ten books left in the series, so I sure hope so! All that and more when we review Animorphs book 41: The Familiar.
