I have to return to school. Oh well, it’s been an awesome summer full of memories and I hope yours was too. Now read on for this weeks awesome newsletter with great news!! &&&&&&&&& AW FORUM &&&&&&&&& Last week's forum: What’s your review of #45 The Revelation? All reviews that contain spoilers have been marked. SMALL SPOILER: “i think it was the best book in a LONG time, it's kinda sad that Marco had to give up his life, but i'm glad that his dad knows! Him "inventing" Z-Space was a big shock to me! and here seems to be some trace of Marco's humor in it.... so i really liked it a lot... what? did you really expect a huge review from ME?” - AG “My review of 45? It was funny, sad, hysterical, and everything Animorphs should be, even unexpected, although the purpose of the book was spoiled by someone on the MZ message board. But this is truly the best book since MM4, and I CAN'T WAIT FOR 46!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” - zeahorse “I loved 45. It's as good as I thought it would be. It's worth being all hyped up about. I'm not going to say any spoilers, but oh, the facts! The facts! The wonderful things that happened! This book made my Top 10 in a heartbeat! ~drools~ I. Love. This. Book! This book is a 9.9/10 cause it was a little rushed in some parts. Now I'm dying for 46! I hate cliffhangers!” - Rachias WARNING! BIG SPOILER!: “Well, I thought that #45 was, well, okay. It wasn't that great, because basically it was spoiled through Morphz.com and Scholastic. They gave away the best parts! I mean, obviously if Marco told his dad about the Animorphs, they'd have to go into hiding and his step-mom would be controlled. The part I didn't know was about his real mom being freed, but that wasn't very thrilling. Also, with the Andalites coming back, I think reading about the Andalites are extremely boring, so I think I'll be bored with #46. So, #45 was all right, but it wasn't so excellent, unlike the best book I've ever read.” - Andrew “D'oh! i havent read it yet. dang bookstore is filling up the animorphs space with Baby Sitter's Club! oi!” - Steph This week's forum question is: What title would you give the final Megamorphs book (#5), why? %%%%%%% AW POLL %%%%%%% Last week's poll question was: should there be an Alternamorphs #3? Thanks to everyone who sent in their poll responses!! Yeah! 2 Maybe… 1 No way! 9 This week's poll question is: if Jake had died, who would be the Animorphs leader then? Please send in your poll response to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with "poll" as the subject. Thanks! ====== NEWS ====== Got some GREAT news this week! - Thanks to Nothlit at TNGtA, we now know the title to book #49 where Tobias possibly meets his mother, Loren! The title of the book is The Diversion and Tobias may morph a German shepherd on the cover. Great title! I guess it refers to whoever Tobias meets! There’s also a brand new summary of the book: The Yeerks have come up with a new plan to gain hosts. It involves diverting subway systems directly to the Yeerk pool. It's just could work. Tobias and the other Animorphs have to stop it. There's only one problem. Someone from Tobias's past has shown up. Someone he was close to. And she's not what he expected.... - Second thanks to Nothlit, we have the first images of the CD case and the CD itself of the Animorphs PC game demo that came with book #45! Front: http://www.crosswinds.net/~nothlit/images/ani/pcgame1.gif Back: http://www.crosswinds.net/~nothlit/images/ani/pcgame2.gif CD: http://www.crosswinds.net/~nothlit/images/ani/pccdrom.gif - A third thanks to Nothlit, when #47 The Resistance comes out next month it’ll be displayed in a cool #47 display at bookstores! - The cover to #48 The Return shows itself, and it is definately intiguing. <center><img src="http://www.morphz.com/book/books/bk48big.jpg"></center> Here are my thoughts on what exactly that thing is. She's got those blades coming out of her fingers and she’s very buff. Her arm seems to be very buff with muscles compared to the arm she started with. She also seems to have muscles on her abs and her legs are bigger too. Maybe she's morphing into a Mutant Rachel! But I think maybe this means she doesn't actually morph whatever she is (like on the cover of #13, 19 and 41). She just changes into it, it does look mean though! It’s possible that Crayak has something to do with this mutant. Maybe Crayak has interfered with Rachel’s body in some way. We’ll know when the book comes out in November. - Although I checked my computer store and didn’t find the game, I did find a very big image of the box of the PC game: http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B00004TJE6.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg Maybe the game will come out on Sep. 6 as said by Amazon. - Instead of having 266 pages (which we knew wasn’t true), The Ellimist Chronicles will have 204 pages! - Thanks to AG, there's a new series on Disney called “In a Heartbeat” and it stars Shawn and Chris, two of the main characters of the Animorphs TV show. The show just aired it’s first episode last week. AG comments, “it's really weird looking at their new charaters 'cause Shawn likes this Rachel type girl and Chris looks SO different!” - I FINALLY saw X-Men this past Friday and I have to say it wasn an EXCELLENT movie, really, really good! Shawn Ashmore was pretty good in the movie, he didn’t have a lot of lines (like my sister said), but he did play an important part in the movie (and he got to act beside Anna Paquin, that lucky duck)! +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ ON THE BOOK CHARTS +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ #45 The Revelation is on the books this week at number 70 from 196! This is a HUGE jump and means the book is selling very well! I don’t think I’ve ever seen an Animorphs book in a position under 100! It’s no surprise the book is selling so well!! #44 The Unexpected is off the charts. <><><><><><><><><><><><> WEB PAGE OF THE WEEK <><><><><><><><><><><><> The Morphers http://sites.netscape.net/havebuffalo/home ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ CLOSING REMARKS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Thanks for reading!
