I think that though the series's action was generally done well, the style was a bit weird at first. I could do without the onomatopoeia.
Here's an example... that I made up.
"We inched closer to the cliff's edge.

A Taxxon had fallen from the sky and splattered on the ground below!

Brrrruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuummm... etcetera."
Okay, maybe I outdid this a tiny bit. I'm not saying the action scenes were horrible. They were intense and all. I just still have trouble with all the sounds that are actually typed. Also, a couple times, I was so into an animorphs book that I muttered the bizarre sounds... and not the dialogue.
"Heh. No, mom. I don't have Tourette Syndrome."
In all honesty, I just wanted to type. This post was completely pointless. Good day.

Going back to the "Six Days The Animorphs Were Idiots" discussion, I'd like to meet Adam, too.

Wait... he's alive, right?

I agree. I think the series in general overuses onomatopoeia and distracts from a lot of the action scenes.

This is a book that it seems creates such polar opinions, most seem to love it. I couldn't quite get myself to get on board. I understand that the series as a whole requires you to suspend disbelief but this really pushed the limits. On the other hand the action was great. Like someone said previously, I have a hard to getting behind a nuclear blast creating a Sario Rip.

I read this long ago, and I cant really remember much beyond the basic plot outline, but I do remember it being an effective, emotionally powerful book. . . one that I enjoyed more than I had expected to. I havent read anything else by Uris.
