Book 32: The Separation

Post by gh astly » Mon Sep 29, 2014 1:29 pm

I know, I know, there hasn't been a new book of the week in a while. Again, lots of stuff going on for me and I'm assuming TM, so you'll have to forgive us.

Summary
Spoiler:
Rachel loses her earring in a tide pool, so she morphs to sea star to get it back. But while she's a sea star, she is cut in half by a future serial killer. Both halves of the sea star demorph, creating two new Rachels. One is aggressive and violent and one is meek and has no short term memory. The other Animorphs dub them "mean Rachel" and "nice Rachel", respectively. Mean Rachel is impossible to handle, so the others leave her behind when they go on a mission. But Jake and Nice Rachel are captured by Visser Three. Luckily, mean Rachel arrives (to kill them) and gets herself captured as well. Mean Rachel and Nice Rachel work together to escape and realize that they need each other. Ax comes up with a way to put the two back together. It makes no sense, but it works, and everyone is happy.

So just shut your face and take a seat, 'cause after all, we're just talking meat. And music?

Well, it's just entertainment, folks.

Future serial killer? Did I miss something when I read this as a child?

Nah, that's just an inference from the people who wrote the summary (Which I forgot to link to. Oops!). Really, though, I wouldn't be surprised if that kid did some bad stuff.

<Actually we know almost nothing of the little boy who cuts Rachel in half, I think we see him with a sister and we might even have a slight description of what he looks like, however if I remember correctly we don't even get that much.>
<Rachel just sees a mother and her two children some distance away, the boy has a shovel and a bucket, then after she morphs Mean Rachel figures out that the boy chopped her in half.>

True. I will admit that I haven't read this one in quite a while; I've been really busy lately.
BTW, I know you were supposed to host this one, but I posted it anyway. Any of mine you want to host to even it up?

<I'll look at the list later to figure it out.>
<Until then lets do one book a month until things pick up a little more around here.>
<How does that sound?>

Pretty good. I've got a job now, too, which means I have another excuse to not write the summaries. :P

<That's good to know.>
<Now back to the book!>
<It was interesting looking at these two parts of Rachel's personality and how nether one could do much of anything without the other one. There is an episode of Star Trek: Voyager "Faces" that does the same thing to B'Elanna Torres.>
