An Un-Calibrated Centrifuge

My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.

The Ultimate

The Ultimate - Katherine Applegate

Wow wow wow. Talk about upping the stakes. This book asks lots of questions and gives very few answers, but again all the work done earlier in the series is paying off. This is a difficult one to talk about without spoiling things, so I'll put the rest under the cut.

 

The fracturing of the Animorphs feels sudden in this book even though it makes sense in the story.

 

The book seems a little ableist, but I'm not anyone to make that call. (The thing that bugged me the most was how the kids healed by the morphing process are the leaders of the new groups.) There are many view points on disabilities (still called handicaps by some characters) that cover a lot of bases.

 

The new kids can instantaneously morph? Or was that just lazy writing?

 

Not so sure about some of these battle morphs, but no one died so...

 

There's one use of g***y in the book.

 

When Cassie says letting Tom go was the right thing to do I absolutely believe her, but my goodness the series is getting really dark.
