Animorphs: The Test

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.

Animorphs: The Journey

This speak: Marco’s got all sorts of problems! First, there’s this camera he’s got to snatch from some dude’s apartment that just might have some pics of the team in mid-morph… The only thing standing in his way is one. Tough. Dog. That, and he can’t morph. Why not? Because of all the shrunken-down Helmacrons and Animorphs (and Ax’s!) inside his body! Huh-whaaa? That’s right, the Helmacrons are back, and the rules don’t matter anymore! Will Marco ever get the little people out of his head and find a way to delete those potentially-disastrous pix?? Find out when we review Animorphs book 42: The Journey.

Animorphs: The Extreme

This Speak, the guys discuss the ghostwriting process now that we’re entering that territory, revisiting the “listener emails” section of the show and reading some, an argument about Visser 3’s feeding grounds, Coleman’s bizarre feelings on this book, Ax impersonates Visser 3 again, we discuss how the team handles arctic conditions, everyone almost freezes to death, another quickly wrapped-up plot, and comparisons to The Forgotten. All that and more, when we review the first ghostwritten Animorphs book, #25, The Extreme.

Animorphs: The Suspicion

This Speak, it’s the amazing shrinking Animorphs! Mitchell and Coleman discuss; the future of the Thought-Speak podcast, all the spoilers contained within the cover images, everything wrong with the Helmacrons, plenty of action filler scenes, Coleman’s outspoken opinions on the fandom, the story of the stupid r/Animorphs karma-stealing sweatshirt, Coleman points out a print error that went uncaught by the authors and publishers, the similarities between this book and Michael Grant’s BZRK, the stupid idea to include the Yeerks in this whole shrinking plot, the return of Chapman and a meeting of the Sharing, and the usefulness of the anteater morph! All that and more, when we review Animorphs book #24, The Suspicion.
