Episode 51: The Test

Gather round now y’all, and hear the tale of yet another Thought-Speak episode gone by. Your hosts Mitchell and Coleman are back for yet another entry into the Animorphs series, and it looks like we’re finally getting close to that 10-book countdown to the end. This one is actually the second-to-the-last Tobias book, so fans of his will definitely want to listen along with us as we delve more into his story and what makes the bird-boy tick. There’s a lot of questions and speculation to come out of this book, and it’s a fun time for us to dive into and examine in detail.

This speak: Tobias is in over his head – again! After helping to locate a missing child in the woods, Tobias ends up in a vet’s office with no way out! And it’s the Yeerks that get to him first, headed up by his old nemesis Taylor. The one-time Sub-Visser claims to be helping the Yeerk Peace Movement progress, but she needs something from Tobias and the rest of the Andalite bandits (also Ax) to make her plan work. The team decides to play along and help her tunnel underneath the Yeerk pool in order to make it all go BOOM! but something doesn’t feel quite right. Tobias can’t shake the feeling that Taylor can’t be trusted, on account of that whole torture episode, and the fact that she’s pretty noticeably cray-cray. Can the team handle Taxxon morph? Can Taylor be trusted? All that and more as we review Animorphs book 43: The Test.
