This is the first time — the very first time — that I’m finally giving 1 star to an Animorphs book. Because this one is dreadful. I found myself highlighting lots of quotes, not because they were beautiful or well-phrased or interesting explorations of their characterisations, but because the behaviour in them was just so stupid that I th believe it. I think the plot here is ahimorphs w Ghostwriter: I think the plot here is actually worse than the stupid ‘poodle biting Visser Three’s ankles’ thing in So here’s the deal: Jake is away on a family trip for a few days, and in his absence, an opportunity to discredit Visser Three in front of a fellow Yeerk inspector pops up.
Rachel installs herself as interim leader of the Animorphs, and leads them on snimorphs series of rapid-fire blitz attacks all across town, and she unsurprisingly turns out to be awful as a leader.
I can see what the point was supposed to be: Rachel’s characterisation in this one, more than anything else, reminded me of megalomaniacal Psychotic Rachel from 32 was that the only book the ghostwriter had read for Rachel reference, or something? She’s always been impulsive and put herself in danger, but this is downright asinine and endangering the entire team. Putting an Andalite on TV and there’s no fallout from this?
The Weakness (Animorphs, #37) by K.A. Applegate
They rampage the town to supposedly make the Yeerks think it’s an entire army of Andalites, but they use their same morphs every time plus animprphs same number of attackers, so it’s obvious that they’re one group?? But this is just And I find it flat-out unbelievable that when literally the entire rest of the team is telling Rachel to take it easy and they should maybe do some scouting and info-gathering, she scoffs and laughs at them and insults them.
And they still follow her! Oddly, the rest of the team’s characterisations were pretty accurate, but that just left me astonished at the fact that they went along with this plan especially using untried polar bear morphs in extended battle, without morph variety. And our POV character was such a mess.
Here, have an example: And here they would have Hork-Bajir shock troops. A very different proposition from scaring off civilians and roughing up human-Controllers.
I wasn’t sure exactly what we’d do once we got there. But I knew I’d figure out something. Hero warrior and interim king! I felt like howling and laughing and leaping up onto a sign-post and twirling in midair! Like Gene Kelly in that old movie Singing in the Rain. There was chaos in the streets! Maybe not chaos but there was definitely confusion.
AT least there was rhe of something going on. Lots of police cars, just kind of cruising along. Shopkeepers shutting down before usual closing time. Clusters of weqkness talking hurriedly, glancing over their shoulders nervously. Anticipating the next bizarro attack. I seriously can’t emphasise how much I hated this.
I almost couldn’t finish, when normally I devour these books. The only thing I liked was in comparison with the previous book: I also liked Tobias disagreeing with Rachel, and tactfully not saying anything whenever she called upon him.
I’m probably going to pretend this book never happened and wasn’t a part of canon, because I just hate the Animorphs wantonly weakneess their own hometown for the sake of Rachel’s adrenaline rush.
It’s such a crazy, stupid risk when they could have morphed and snuck into anmorphs jet to steal it!
Why did they run across the tarmac as human kids! View all 9 comments. Jul 03, Caitlin rated it did not like it Shelves: I’m going to go ahead and assume this book didn’t exist. It’s not part of canon. There is literally no reason for it to exist. I can’t imagine how K. Applegate EVER approved this to get published.
I’m sorry but fuuuuck youuuu for reducing Rachel to that because she is so much more than that I can’t even begin to describe it. Jake is out of town and a number of Animorphs opportunities present themselves. I think at this point it’s a bit silly for them to have not thought up a game plan for when one of them especially Jake is out of town; no one really knew what to do.
I agree with Rachel; they should continue carrying out missions when possible even if Jake isn’t there, but because they hadn’t discussed it, it left everyone in an awkward position. She was absolutely obsessed with succeeding at weainess cost. She was SOOOOO fucking conceited in every mission, assuming everything would be perfect even though, hi, it’s been 37 fucking books and you STILL haven’t killed the Visser so I don’t know where you’re going thinking it’s going to be a piece of cake to take him out this time.
This whole book Rachel was just portrayed as awful.
I heard the tone of sarcasm. But I didn’t care. That’s right, I thought.

I am in charge, and now the Yeerks are going to pay. Jake would be proud of me when he got back. Or maybe a little jealous. Maybe even a lot jealous. That was okay, too. Jake had been the leader for a long time. Maybe it was time he took a well-deserved rest. That was my plan and I was in charge, and we were kicking butt in the spectacular way I knew we would. Hard to believe I’d ever doubted myself, even for a moment. Hard to believe that even for a minute I’d questioned my ability to rule, lead, direct.
Make tough decisions in the depths of crisis. Exploit my soldiers’ particular talents.
I was made to be leader! I’d known that all along. We know our morphs.
They’ve been working for us all day. We handle them best.
They were still arguing with me! Feb 01, Ben Babcock rated it did not like it Shelves: The Weakness is, coincidentally, so weak. Her portrayal as an insecure megalomaniac gives me flashbacks, as it did Julie, to aggressive Rachel from Why do the Garatrons need to physically resemble the Andalites if that is never relevant to the story weaknezs subsequent stories in any way?
Animorpus it just to drop in a mention of convergent evolution?
