Well first things first, that cover kind of makes me laugh, must be the expression on the guy's face. That being said, he DOES fit the description of the guy in the book, so hey.

Through the Eyes of a Geek is a story of a "cool dude" who dies, and before he can get into heaven an angel at the gate tells him he has to be the guardian angel for someone on Earth... and it happens to be THE BIGGEST GEEK EVER. Horror of horrors for the cool guy.

Naturally, the cool guy goes on a mission to make the geek cool, or at least less geeky. And it all happens pretty easily for both of them. The geek is stubborn for a moment, but everything pretty much falls into place-he wears the new clothes, he talks to a girl that he has liked forever and she amazingly likes him already as well.

I wasn't very keen on this book. I was amused that the geek would get talking to his angel at times, and the people around him would think he was crazy and talking to himself... but that started to get old after a few times. And after that I didn't have much else to look forward to. The ending was slightly deeper than I imagined it would be, but overall I didn't enjoy this book much.

"Through the Eyes of a Geek" teaches a moral lesson for the middle and high school grades. Other than the frequent language outbursts, which would be considered mild by most people, I actually quite enjoyed the book.

As the book begins, Ryan finds himself at the gates of heaven, having just died. But to get to the "babes" in heaven, he must first help someone on earth. The someone is the school's "biggest Geek", Zachary. Ryan is sure he's going to fail. But Ryan isn't really a quitter, so he lands "plop" in the front seat of Zach's car and Zach promptly runs off of the road.

The two main characters of this book are Zach and Ryan. These two characters are fairly well developed, but the rest remain on the flat side. Ryan is the super cool guy in school, not quite a bully, but he has handed out quite a bit of teasing to those who were not cool and runs around with the bully crowd. But his cool attitude hides dark secrets of his home life, and the reason he keeps his friends at a distance. Meanwhile, Zach is the biggest geek in the school, dealing with his own home heart aches. Each begins to see the world through the others eyes and a deeper understanding grows between them as they begin to work together. For the first time, they each can say that they have a real friend.

The plot was very predictable. It used the formula ... bad but cool boy/girl must help good but geeky outcast to reach a personal goal. Along the way, the two become friends. Cool kid helps the geeky kid come out of their shell and achieve a secret wish of their own (usually a date with the girl/boy that they secretly like). Geeky kid turns out to be pretty cool. Both learn from the experience, and it changes who they are.

A new angel who had been a cool jock has to help a nerd get past his feelings of inadequacy and change his appearance. If he succeeds he'll get into Heaven. This assignment is anything but easy. Especially when the nerd falls in love with one of the hottest and nicest girls who the school bully thinks is his property. Throw in a cute stray dog and a big mouth little sister and you have a great combination for laughs. If this story had been a little deeper and involved it would have gotten five stars but it is still a feel good read.

I've never read anything by this author, however I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It was an easy read, great story, and a feel good book. The only little thing that bothered me was the numerous times I was reminded how no one could see him, other than that perfect!

It's an okay read. Could probably be a lot better with some good editing; conversations are repeated in ways that appear to be mistakes, & etc. The book's theology is a bit of a mishmash too; I'd say the afterlife is just a means to the book's anti-bullying end.

Through the Eyes of a Geek is a story of how the lives of a bully and the geek he picks on, change when the bully dies and becomes the geek's helper angel.
They both see life from the other's eyes and make changes that touch others around them.
I liked this story and recommend it to others who enjoy a light but good read.

Overall, I enjoyed this book. It was drawn out at times, and the author got the names of the characters mixed up a few times, and also misspelled them. Other than that, the story line was pretty good. I did not expect this ending at all, which added a nice twist to the book, and qualified for 4 stars in my opinion.
