My son loves the Animorphs books right now. I read this one so I would be more familiar with some of the characters. I probably needed to know more about the series before trying to read one where I choose the directions of parts of the story. I can see why he liked this one, though. He'd probably rate it a 4.

I seriously wish they would have made more of these. I loved "Choose your own adventure" style books and since I loved Animorphs so much this was the perfect compliment.

For whatever ambiguities of continuity and purpose you'll run into in The Next Passage, this has the dry makings of a good book. There's nothing wrong with the writing of K.A. Applegate, which I understand to be a pen name for an author other than Katherine Applegate and/or Michael Grant in the Alternamorphs gamebook series. The story's descriptions are smart and well-crafted, the work of someone who knows what he or she is doing with a narrative. Some of the book's choices are interesting, mak ...more
   Taking into consideration what this book attempts to do: this is a vast improvement from Alternamorphs #1 The First Journey. I’d almost give this 3 stars (almost) because it improved on some key points which were pretty big fails in The First Journey:

- Wrong choices did not lead to immediate death (though inevitable death was maybe 2 choices away at most) meaning it was also more “fun”,
- Being much more “canon”-accurate and correct,
- Having a slightly more complex narrative & choice

THIS IS A CHOOSE-YOUR-OWN-ADVENTURE-STYLE ANIMORPHS BOOK. IT IS NOT PART OF THE CANON (and, as a personal aside, is not recommended by me). The book allows you, the reader, to "become" part of the Animorphs by putting you essentially in the position of the canon character David, then presenting you with a series of decisions (choose-your-own adventure style) to dictate the plot. Story elements of book #20, book #26, and Megamorphs #2 are incorporated, allowing the reader to pick morphs. Despite ...more

Hey you guys?

Animorphs was not supposed to be "Choose Your Own Adventure."

I'm really glad they didn't make any more of these.

The question for me, now, is why I read this one when the first one was so awful. . . .


This book was ghostwritten by Tonya Alicia Martin.

The events of the Alternamorphs books are not written into the canon whatsoever.

I had this book back in the fifth grade (2009). It was fun for about an hour or two, but now I just consider it as having nostalgic value and very little else to offer. I think the novelty wears off when you're older.

Took a break from the beginning of the end. Yawn.

This was a little worse than the first one. :S At least for one ending, there's a choice.
My review for this is basically the same as for the first one.
