4.0 out of 5 stars Good Plan Poor Execution, 16 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Switchers Trilogy (Paperback)
I remember reading this book when i was but a sprog and it must have been the nostalgia goggles that made it seem so amazing.

The idea itself is sound, the characters are well written if a bit underdeveloped in places (though the US Military seems to be caricatured beyond belief) and the powerset that Kevin and Tess has is amazebaws.

Unfortunately, their intelligence seems not to be.

I don't want to give away too much but i think the author fell into the trap of making her characters too powerful too soon. They kind of hit their peak in the Switching scales pretty early on and then appeared to 'forget' this massive power that they were sitting on for subsequent books which made them seem dumb at best.

Some books span the age gap easily, appealing to adults as well as children, but not this one.

This is a good precursor to the Animorphs but that series was better.
