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.
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.Read more ›
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.
I really enjoyed this it was a nice short little read that filled an afternoon! The cool dude helps the geek to get the girl. Overall a quick fun read!
