Dude, the Underground really confused me the first time I read it. It seemed like a lot was going on or something...
There's a method to my madness, I just haven't figured it out yet.

Why why why did I have to leave book 4 at school that one time..

Don'tcha just love the conversation in book 29, The sickness, where Marco discusses all the words for throwing up :P
haha

Edit: I thought of a random question. How do you guys pronounce Hork-Bajir? like Ba Jar or Ba Jeer? lol, just curious, I think I say the second one

^^^^^^I just call it Hork-Ba Jeer.  Did anyone else get confused over the whole plural vs singular aspect of the word Hork-bajir? So is there such a thing as Hork-BajirS, with an S? I dont remember ever reading it that way.

And another thing, if the Yeerks were so advanced in building stuff, why the hell didn't they have futuristic building machines, as opposed to the earthmovers they kepy using to do every job. And they had storage sheds in the Yeerk Pool. Wtf? Dont they have an imagination?

Apparently, the Yeerks didn't. They never invented their own. Always, their tech is just an inferior copy of other aliens', like the Skirt Na's and the Andalites' techs.
They didn't even have an elevator in the human entrances of the Yeerk Pool. It was stairs. Not escalators. Stairs!
I'm just a writer, and my main goal was always to entertain. But I've never let Animorphs turn into just another painless video game version of war, and I wasn't going to do it at the end. I've spent 60 books telling a strange, fanciful war story, sometimes very seriously, sometimes more tongue-in-cheek. I've written a lot of action and a lot of humor and a lot of sheer nonsense. But I have also, again and again, challenged readers to think about what they were reading. To th

oh yeah that was great.

somebody once told me plural is hork-bajir. no s.

don't you remember ax saying yeerks don't build? everything they have, they steal from other races.

does anybody know how visser three brought back the venber? it was something about programming. I don't remember, and the ebooks skipped those pages explaining.

I remember my friends and I used to read Animorphs at school in the corner during reading time. We got some weird looks, lol.

One thing I really like about this series is that it blurred the line between good and evil.
If you are not in my avatar, and would like to be, or if you changed your name and avatar and would like me to update it, PM me. I cannot add or change anyone at the moment as I lost the file I use for this, but if people still want in, I'll work on it.

I am RAFmarried to my sweet shnukums, Rachel. ;D

This series had a lot of funny moments, but nothing made me laugh harder than the scene in #49 where Rachel's sisters think Ax is a Pokémon.

Oh my gosh, I just read that book. I started laughing histarically when I read that part.
I can see it now. Yeerk, Hork-Bajir, and Andalites trapped in Pokemon balls, lol. What if the Animorphs really battled like that?
