The Earth is being invaded, but no one knows about it. When Jake, Rachel, Tobias, Cassie, and Marco stumble upon a downed alien spaceship and its dying pilot, they're given an incredible power - they can transform into any animal they touch. With it, they become Animorphs, the unlikely champions in a secret war for the planet. And the enemies they're fighting could be anyone...even the people closest to them.

15 years too late

I should have read these so long ago. I’m floored at how amazing this book is. When coming into YA I expect a certain amount of hand holding and corniness, but this book pulls no punches. It’s got amazing sci-fi elements and isn’t afraid to explore the very real consequences of war and death. 100% recommend for all ages.

Bunch’a idiot teenagers with a death wish.

I’ve been waiting for these to come out on Audible since the moment I started using it. And now finally they’re here! Narration and quality is great too.

Animorphs is an amazing book series that’s part Animal Planet, part Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and part something else. Reading these as an adult, you realize how dark the series actually is. This seems like a light hearted action adventure sci-fi written for preteens, but it gets much deeper than that.

I highly recommend this to adults, just as mush as to 12 year olds. The series as a whole has a depth to it that surpasses the average “us against them” stereotype found in most stories. When I read them as a child, they taught me that there is no one side to anything; everyone has a backstory, even those you consider your enemy. It also taught me that war is not a romantic epic where everyone gets medals at the end. War is ugly, and innocent people are affected no matter what.

So anyway, I could go on for a long time but I’ll try to end here. Audible, PLEASE CONTINUE RELEASING THESE! I’ll spend good money on all of em. 🤑

Nostalgia, thy name is Animorphs

This was my favorite book series when i was in middle school, i have almost the complete series! I was so happy when i downloaded and listened to the book to discover that not only does the writing hold up for an older audience, but the narrator does a fantastic job of voice acting! Credits well spent, and I look foreword to downloading the whole series as it comes out!

it was too short.

I feel like they should come in a collection of three for the price of one credit. other than that it was good

Grew up with this series - did not disappoint!

I grew up reading the Animorph series, and I couldn't resist this book when it came out. It did not disappoint.! MacLeod Andrews is one of my favorite narrator/performers, and he did a wonderful job bringing this first book to life. I will most likely move slowly through the rest of the series, $10 per book is a little steep for a 3 hour book.

Been waiting 13 years for this

13 years ago, I went looking for Animorphs audiobooks and couldn't find them. Now, they're real, and they're just what I wanted.

Easy to Follow

I listened to this because it was assigned for a book club. Even though I prefer Audible for the cost (free) since my spouse gets credits every month, I sometimes have a hard time following the story because I'm not an audible learner. However, MacLeod Andrews did a great job at narrating, and Katherine Applegate's story and plot also made it easier to understand and a joy to listen to. Applegate is highly imaginative and great at putting herself in the "shoes" of non-humans. I wouldn't mind listening to another book in the series.

Please record the entire series!

This was absolutely a blast from start to finish. I read all of these many moons ago and now I have children and they both love listening to them. The performance was strong and easy to listen to. Maybe he could be a tiny bit brighter (tone) but I'm not going to knock him down for that. The real question is when do they record the first megamorphs book.

.

i own all of the books and was really excited to get my daughter into the series that i had loved while i was in school. everything was ok except for the girls' voices. The attempt was good, but just didn't work for me. My daughter loved it though.

The most underrated Sci-fi story of my age.

I loved this series when I was a kid, and I appreciate it more now that I'm older and can comprehend implications better.
I had forgotten what a dark and bloody violent series this was. You know, For Kids!

So glad Animorphs audiobooks are being produced!

I loved those books as a kid/teen. I had them all in French and unfortunately, the French publisher decided to remove 3 of the books towards the end from the official publication so I'm looking forward to listening to them. The voice actors have been picked pretty well for each character too, so it makes them even more enjoyable.

Pure Nostalgia

I read through half the Animorph books in my teen years, by far one of the best set of books ever! So glad they’re bringing them to audible.
Hard copy’s are not the easiest to come by anymore.

Takes me back to my childhood!

I have not read these books since high school. Listening to this audiobook has taken my back in time to when I used to devour these books. I never imagined I would ever hear about Animorphs again. I highly recommend this to anyone who loved reading these books.

love that this is being made 🖤

I loved this series as a kid, I've been hoping audio versions would be made for some time, if the rest of the series is this well done it will definitely be a treat, also hope that the whole series is done if possible (the cronicle books,megamorphs ECT.)
