    One thought on “The Encounter”

    1. I never cared as a kid, but as an adult, wow this book is bleak Well, I shouldn t say bleak, because ultimately, the book does have a relatively uplifting ending, and I tend to associate bleakness with a lack of hope or optimism, which isn t this series at all, no matter how dark it goes But I think this book and what it s willing to do with Tobias s character is an example of one of the many reasons I loved this series so much when I was growing up Kids don t live happy go lucky lives where dar [...]

    2. One of the most important parts of designing a magic system, or a set of superpowers, or anything that allows characters to defy the ordinary laws and assumptions of our universe, is deciding what the costs will be You can t get something for nothing, and if you break the rules, you have to pay a price For the Animorphs, it s a two hour time limit If you stay in a morph longer, you re stuck there No backsies.The Animorphs run up against this in The Encounter Our narrator this time is Tobias, who [...]

    3. Brought to you by The Moonlight Library Book 3 is Tobias time to shine I don t know why he was selected as the third character in our merry go round of narrators, but it s a good spot in the story He s been a hawk for about a month, and he s struggling with the instincts that, to him, mean he is losing his humanity namely hunting and the desire to find a mate The animal instincts don t seem to be as well written as the previous two books because this one is plot driven than its predecessors, bu [...]

    4. I love this Tobias is such a deeply emotional character and I love how this book explores what makes us human I m blown away by the maturity of this kids series.

    5. Wow, this was surprisingly depressing and dark I can t say that I necessarily enjoyed it, but it was good.

    6. Ahh, yes, Tobias The emo boy before emo was cool This book explores his dilemma of being a human trapped in a hawk s body forever Already, the Animorphs series is showing that it s going to tackle some tough subjects And the band has another close call.

    7. Tobias book Cheer up, emo bird I was really into him in the show who wasn t , and of course I was deeply into the OTP it gets gutting later, and there are already hints of it right here at the start, I forgot how early they set it up but he was never actually my favourite character.I love that in these early books their first ever POV books they re all sorting through their issues and discovering deciding on their reasons for fighting this war Because you need a motivation, you need that persona [...]

    8. Love, love love LOVED this book Such a great insight on Tobias and his exponential growth in just around 150 pages Much entertaining than Rachel s first book, but less exciting than Jake s Loved it so much.

    9. One of the best books in the series Tobias is such a good character in the series and this book is a strong start to his character.Full review at ReadingOverTheShoulder on Jun.26.2017

    10. This review is also posted on my blog view spoiler Well that was enjoyable And I know it was only book three, but I think this one is my favorite so far Tobias is a very mature character, and has very real problems with his identity that are far interesting for me to read about than most of the other individual issues the other characters could have.Not much else has changed, opinion wise I m still annoyed to HELL by Marco, and want him gone he whines, and complains, and brings down everyone, a [...]

    11. This book takes us into the perspective of Tobias, the animorph who stayed in a hawk form for too long This character stood out to me because it showed the consequences of staying in a morph for too long You re in that animal body forever and there are some things you can t do because you re an animal The guilt he feels of not being able to always participate on a mission and the joyous freedom he experiences as a hawk is really interesting to read The readers get to take a peak in his mindset a [...]

    12. This third book has Tobias as main POV and it was the most heartbreaking of the lot so far for sure This review will probably have a few spoilers for book 1 and 2 so please be aware of that, and read at your own risk The animorphs have survived another battle and have eluded Visser Three for the second time, but things are becoming and dangerous with every interaction, even because they re suspected of being Andalites warriors and not human kids that can morph.This one not only deals with bei [...]

    13. Read this review and at Romancing the Laser Pistol.I know that I ve read this book than once I literally could not remember the ending That being said, this entire novel is so far fetched, that I just purged the ending from my mind It really is that ridiculous The entire story is ridiculous.I understand that the Yeerks probably have human controllers up on the mother ship I understand that those human controllers probably require oxygen and water What I don t understand is why they would colle [...]

    14. From the way the others described Tobias in the previous books, I had him pictured as someone thoughtful and introspective And well, I guess he is, but he also has a much less detailed style of narrating than some of the other kids Although he s very frank about his feelings and rather clever in dangerous situations, at times he almost comes across as robotic For example Chapman had joined the Yeerks But he had done it in part to save his daughter, Melissa Melissa would be at the gymnastics thin [...]

    15. I never read any of these books when I was a kid but this one made me rmr what it was like to be eight years old and fully engrossed in a story, whether I was reading or writing itthe writing itself is just ok, gets the job donebut that s fine, I thinkit reminds me of reading a screenplaythe cool thing abt this sort of YA is that it s really just all abt emotional world buildingby which I mean it s not so much abt the technical aspects of the world but what humanity means in context of itand I t [...]

    16. Originally reviewed at thelibraryladies Narrator TobiasPlot In which the Animorphs discover that even Yeerks need basic resources like water and they have decided that the best way to get it is to fly massive tanker ships through the mountains and drain remote lakes using straws So, a totally normal premises to start out with What s even better is that Tobias discovers this while flying along and seeing a flock of geese ram straight into an invisible wall the ship has a cloaking device ala Kling [...]

    17. Tobias s book is particularly interesting, his inner conflict front and center as he deals with and faces the fact that he s stuck forever in the body of a hawk Of course, there s still a mission to run against the Yeerks on top of all that, too.

    18. On the one hand, you have the first too convenient kinda dumb overly lucky assault against the Yeerk, but in the same book you have the somehow believable and tragic story of Tobias learning to accept his new life.

    19. The lovely ladies of Morph Club are doing a book by book review of this series So good click to listen to third episode From the site Megan Carey read the third and most emotional Animorphs book so far Join us and cry about the the continued rough times for good bird boy Also mentioned local ads, mall gymnastic meets, thermals, giant space straws, and the joys of eavesdropping on controller grunts.

    20. I ve read the first one and decided to try this one next I m a fan of science fiction and although I m not crazy about animals, I do love this series I m surprised that our public library no longer has any copies available, so I ve had to gather my small collection from used bookstores I like how each book is told from a different perspective Tobias definitely has a unique perspective It did seem slow for much of the book and seemed to hit the action, climax, and resolution all within a couple p [...]

    21. This took me longer then I like to admit to get around to finishing Tobias is a very interesting character where you empathize with him but at the same time he can really get on your nerves.The plot was really intriguing especially as we see what might happen if one of them can t always be able to help in their own way and even moments where we see these kids are dealing with it in some pretty harsh ways Their in a war zone now They re going to have problems and Tobias I felt awful for him and w [...]

    22. So much happens in this book, oh my god This is the second time, out of 3 books, that our heroes are prepared to accept the sweet embrace of death as a consequence of their mission The team come very close to nothlit dom as half animal abominations And Tobias becomes suicidal, dissociates, and forgets English for a while It s fucked up And fascinating Everyone loves Tobias Sweet, broken Tobias.Best dated reference The mall Radio Shack B Dalton Benetton.

    23. In which the Animorphs discover that even Yeerks need basic resources like water and they have decided that the best way to get it is to fly massive tanker ships through the mountains and drain remote lakes using straws So, a totally normal premises to start out with Full review here at the thelibraryladies.

    24. What counts is what is in your head A person isn t his body A person isn t what s on the outside One of the sadder books of the series proving the point that no matter how good you are or how noble your intentions, sometimes bad things happen But you have to keep looking up And Tobias is one of my favorite characters.
