Most... awkward... mindswap...ever...Click for full image

Ash Comments: If you want to show a human and an alien swapping minds, should the human be photo-realistic while the alien looks like a child’s drawing? Or is he turning into an alien child’s drawing? That mouth just bugs me.
Published 1967

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 7.23 out of 10)

    Hey, is this mind swap or face swap? Make up your, er… face.

    M C Escher’s early work showed little promise.

  3. Phil Says:

    I like it when publishers compare an author’s new book with their most obscure previous book. I would have said “from the author of THE TENTH VICTIM”.

    Of course MINDS WAP is a bit dated now. Everyone uses MINDS 3G instead.

    What, no half-nude men with unsubtle phallic imagery today?!?

  5. Tom Noir Says:

    By the by, am I the only one who just gets an eternal ‘loading’ icon when he tries to rate something lately?

  6. Phil Says:

    Tom, you are not alone: this ‘loading’ thing started happening for me yesterday, and I am currently unable to rate anything. And it’s not confined to one computer: I have tried three different PCs.


  7. Lulu Says:

    I’m having the same trouble with ratings as Tom and Phil

  8. Alessandra Kelley Says:

    Worst Animorphs book ever.

    Well, that explains why this book hasn’t any star rating yet. I’m also getting the eternal “Loading” circle.

  9. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    It seems as though the alien was smiling more as an alien, but as you can see from the transition he became less happy as he began to become more human

  10. Phil Says:

    Anti-Septic, you have a pessimistic view of the narrative. I, the eternal optimist, saw it as emotionally neutral man becoming happy ET.

    He has a shirt on, you can see the collar at lower left. Perhaps the three salamanders are riding along in his breast pocket?

    Artwork by Billy, who was paid with an icecream cone! Good work, Billy!

    That face has clearly been ripped from an old painting.
