17 Days of Life Done

This post is old, so what you see here may not reflect my current opinion and mindset, certain information may be outdated, and links may be broken.

After taking almost 4, FOUR months to finish up the collection, I started reading the Animorphs series by K.A.A. Applegate on June 8, 2006. Completion date is June 25, 2006.

That’s 54 regular titles, 4 Megamorphs, and 4 Chronicles. *dies* Finished all that in 17 days. Averaging about 3.6 books a day. Unbelievable, eh? I can’t believe it either.

Verdict
I still love the book, and I still consider it one of my all-time favourite book series. Tobias, Marco, and Ax are still my favourite characters while the others I could care less for. The first thirty books are great, and then it kinda goes down the drain till the finale of the last three books.

Cassie is still an oxymoron, drove me crazy in the books. Jake is boring as hell. Rachel is just too psycho. Visser Three kicks ass when he’s being a stupid tard. The Ellimist and Crayak back story just confuses the hell out of me. I love the Pemalites, even though their non-violence way does have its limit.

Love Ax’s experience as a human. Especially when I read about him eating the most weirdest stuff ranging from cigarette butts to engine oil to cinnamon buns. XD Tobias, my heart just goes out to him. Marco ROCKS. I love his humour, and I love his ruthlessness. I so want that ruthlessness while I sub. x_x;; I am too much like a cross between Cassie and Rachel. Blargh.

I still want a Taxxon Chronicles… but I guess after portraying Arbron in the Andalite Chronicles and at the end of the series, there was no reasons for it. I like Visser… seeing how the Yeerks mentally become a human. Ellimist Chronicles just confused the hell out of me.

I love the Hork-Bajir, and the story in the chronicle. Dak Hamee, Toby Hamee, and Jara Hamee rules. Aldrea was just plain annoying in both the chronicle and #34 or whatever it is.

Conclusion
Yes, I love this series. Yes, I’m nuts. This series kept me company on my long bus rides to and back from Daechi-dong the past two weeks. Thanks to this series, my English class reading has been … put aside. Now to actually focus on that…

…What am I gonna read on the bus now?! I need a new series. *pouts* And no, I am not lugging that fat ass English book of mine to read on the bus. >_<;;

  1. holy cow when’s the last time I heard of that series!! I have the whole series (except for the last the books and some external chronicals because someone spoiled me on the ending of the last book and I never got the rest.) And even now I think that was one of my favorite series (and that was my third book club as a child, after babysitters Club and Goosebumps) I happened to like Jake, because he was the leader and handled business when necessary. Cassie was alright but her priorities were freakin mixed up. All your other opinions on the characters are definitely correct. Ax cracked me up!

    Have you ever read The Ancient One? It was one of my favorite books when I was a kid…it’s not a series, but it’s of the sci-fi/fantasy variety, so I thought you might be interested :)
