Did anyone here read Animorphs? They were my favorite books in elementary school. What I wonder, is why I liked them. They were hastily written with poor prose, frequent and blatant continuity errors, and minimal character development after book 8 or so. But I ate them up. I went to the store the day they came on the shelf each month, and read half of it on the ride home. I know I'm not the only one who liked them, so hopefully it's not that I had bad taste in books. My question is: what made these books so good, despite all its ubiquitous flaws? If we can tap into that, it could make us better writers. I have my opinions, but I want to hear yours first.
