I would have posted this earlier today, but I just kind of forgot. Please forgive me.
Well, this is the first Alternamorphs book, if you can't tell, and it is an interesting specimen. It's a choose-your-own adventure book, but I refer to it as such in the loosest sense of the term. What I mean by that is that there are no branching plots, and any choice that is not the "correct" one (as in, the one that defies common sense the most) immediately leads to death or being captured by the Yeerks. As such, this book was not received well by the Animorphs community, and in my opinion, for good reason. Enough of that, though, let's get on to the summary, stolen from Cinnamon Bunzuh as per usual for me.
You were at the construction site when Elfangor crashed, and you became an Animorph. Now you must sort of reenact the events of book one and pick the morphs you need to survive. Except there is only ever one morph that won't end in death. So. It's more like a regular book that happens to be written in the second person. There is no plot to speak of, only you dying in various ways.
The second half of the book is a semi-original storyline, with Visser Three manipulating the Sario Rip from book eleven for his own purposes. He harnesses the power to...send himself back in time and kill Eva before she is infested by Edriss. Even the author admits it makes no sense.
You morph into a giraffe, kick Visser Three in the face, and are warped home to your own time for no reason whatsoever. The end.
That's what happens.
<...um, it was Ellimist showing them human history in a way that they could understand, and he wanted to have a little fun.>
<Also I know we all hated feeling railroaded by Altermorphs 1, so lets try to focus on the other parts of it. Like how did you react to the part where you morph into a police dog and the cops are surprised to see one more dog then they thought their were? Don't you think these cops would know their dogs by name? So it isn't just one more dog, it's one more Fluffy.>
True education, true science, true religion is the search for truth.
