|They are pretty good. The individual plots get a bit samey, but all the underlying threads - the unstoppable invasion, the hopelessness of the resistance, the effect of war, of killing and all the responsibility that brings, of knowing that that anyone could be an enemy and that if they catch you you'll have no choice in helping to betray your own cause - they are spine-tinglingly chilling. Plus, the books are funny!|
"My friends and I fight the Yeerks. But we're just five kids. Well, five kids and one Andalite. Yes, we have some amazing powers, but we're still desperately weak and outnumbered compared to the force of the Yeerk invasion.
We are the only humans resisting the Yeerks.
We may be the only hope that Earth has.
We have a lot on our shoulders.
Which is why I really, really did not see why I had to have more suffering piled on.
Wasn't I under enough stress? Life wasn't bad enough? We had to have...square dancing?" (Jake's voice, from 'The Forgotten').
