The Opinionated Animorphs Book Guide!
« on: October 05, 2009, 11:11:29 AM »
In my youngen days (the mid-90s) I got hooked to a Young Adult science fiction series that was unlike anything I had encountered before: K.A. Applegate's Animorphs, a 64-book yarn about war, slavery, sanity and then there was one book where they became really small and entered a guy's body. It wasn't a masterpiece, but the series was suprisingly complex for what it was, and it really excelled in it's character development. I recently returned to this series, and have become compelled to make some Youtube reviews of each of the books. So, yes, I have started another project which I'll probably give up on in a few weeks.  :P

The format I'm using is lovingly ripped off from SF Debris' Star Trek episode reviews, which is you haven't watched are awesome and you should totally check him out. I actually contacted him and got permission, so don't worry. Anyway, already finished the first two reviews, and I have no idea how fast I can do the rest, but you'll be the first to know.

Interesting idea for reviews, never read the books though.

What's most interesting to me is how much like my friend Greg you sound only with a different regional accent.

I doubt it, do you look like Rowan Atkinson after some major cosmetic teaks? ;)

Ok, so here's my story: I was about 75% finished with the first version of this review when my complete suddenly crashed. After almost two weeks of trying to stitch my computer back together, I finally gave up. I had money saved to buy a new computer anyway, so I bought a new fancy machine with lots of power, and whats more, new video editing software, so you'll see some changes in style from the earlier videos. Also, I'll experimenting with other projects as well.

So, FINALLY, my review of Animorphs #7: The Stranger

Wow.

I just blazed through the review, and I must say, kudos mamma jamma. It's been a while since I read this series, and you've taken a refreshing and well-thought-out look at it. :)
