Animorphs The Familiar is one of the more "surreal" books in the Animorphs series, and as such, tends to be quite divisive. Let's get the bad stuff out of the way first - this is largely a filler book, the events it depicts having no effect on the overarching plot of the series, and technically a reader could skip this book without missing anything of vital importance. The basic setup is that, after a particularly harrowing mission, team leader Jake wakes up to find himself ten years future, though it quickly becomes clear that all is not as it seems

Animorphs #41 The Familiar is one of the more "surreal" books in the Animorphs series, and as such, tends to be quite divisive. Let's get the bad stuff out of the way first -- this is largely a filler book, the events it depicts having no effect on the overarching plot of the series, and technically a reader could skip this book without missing anything of vital importance. The basic setup is that, after a particularly harrowing mission, team leader Jake wakes up to find himself ten years future, though it quickly becomes clear that all is not as it seems. The book has quite a few inconsistencies with the larger rules of the series, but unlike most cases of this, they are justified (I won't spoil how though). Even though the events are irrelevant from a plot perspective, it is still quite interesting to see how Jake reacts to this strange future, not to mention seeing what has become of the other core cast. Were I reviewing this book solely from my own tastes, I would rate it five stars, because the surrealism of it is something I found quite appealing, and it gives the book a unique kind of value for re-reads. But the plot irrelevance and the mind-bending unreality (maybe reality was just "shattered", heh heh) of it will not appeal to everyone. Either way, though, give it a shot. It's certainly more memorable than a lot of the more conventionally popular books in the Animorphs series.

This was an extremely tense and fast-paced book. After a horrific failed battle in which Jake makes the call to leave two Animorphs behind, Jake wakes up the next morning and finds everything changed. He's suddenly "at least ten years older" in an UNfamiliar world. This book is similar to the alternate, possible reality books of #7 "The Stranger," the beginning of Megamorphs #3, and Megamorphs #4. Jake finds himself in New York City with everything changed-everyone is a Controller, including Andalites. It has the nightmarish aspects of 1984 as well as provoking humor of human society becoming merged with Yeerk society (the bits about pills and clinics and the advertising boards, for example).

I'd say this is an especially dark book, almost a warning of the future. Jake sees his worst fears played out: he was responsible for everyone getting caught since Tom finally figured it out. He finds out that he's responsible for Rachel's death and for turning Cassie, Marco, and Ax into Controllers. The confusing aspects of this book is when he has hallucinations that we don't know are real or not. He sees the walking corpses of the enemies he's killed and is shocked that Cassie is a jaded terrorist, accepting violence. There are few light-hearted moments in this book as Jake is purposely forced to run through the gauntlet for some mysterious end or experiment by a different, perhaps even higher power than the Ellimist or Crayak. It's a terrifying book and one almost wishes for the end since it is quite painful at times. At the end of this book, readers can only hope that Jake can learn from his futuristic experiences.

Um, wow, it's Jake in the future! Sort of. This one was sorta confusing. Worth it, though.

Notable moments and inconsistencies:

This book is ghostwritten by Ellen Geroux.

This book came out about a year before the September 11th tragedy, so the New York skyline included the World Trade Center, named specifically as a way that Jake recognizes he is in New York.

The Yeerk name Jake gets called by in his future world is Essak-Twenty-Four-Twelve-Seven-Five. Awfully big number. It suggests the Yeerks are much more plentiful now.

Aliens called the Orff are introduced here. They have single eyes with pupils that orbit the iris, and they have seemingly transparent skin, long necks, and three legs, and the appearance of organs under their skin are actually decoys.

It's odd that Jake would be so sure Tobias must be dead after he'd already seen an ancient red-tailed hawk and even wondered if it was Tobias. Even though it turns out Tobias wasn't that hawk, it seems like an inconsistent thought for Jake.

Marco is described as having battle scars on his face. That seems unlikely if he is still able to morph. Same with Rachel, who's much worse off; why is she crippled if she can still morph? It's never explained why their morphing abilities were taken away, but since the world has many inconsistencies perhaps this was engineered to make Jake wonder about the reality. His own inability to morph at one point could have been part of this as well.

Jake describes seeing purple-blue Hork-Bajir blood. Because this book is a constructed reality, it's not necessarily true that everything has to be true to life, but in a previous book Hork-Bajir blood is green-blue, not purple-blue.

Jake describes walking in a library and stopping when he gets to the E aisle. Libraries aren't organized by letter. They're organized by Dewey Decimal--by subjects. There shouldn't be an E aisle.
