Four Eyes

Struck - Jennifer Bosworth Mainstream readers, come hither, because I have a feeling Struck may strike your interest. However, since I’m one of those hipsters who chooses to drink milk tea and listen to musicians no one’s heard of (and yes, sarcastic mode is activated here), I was very interested in it initially, but it just didn’t meet my expectations.While some people are addicted to drugs, love or chocolate, Mia Price has her own obsession: lightning. Whenever lightning strikes, she always feels the urge to go out and soak it all up—and mysteriously, she manages to survive. But when two different factions want her for her abilities for their own purposes such as the end of the world coming in a few days, she finds herself pulled between the two . . . and gets even more confused when a mysterious boy comes in . . .Yeah, that last sentence also turned me off. It’s really a shame though, since I was hooked by the blurb before it came out, and I liked the way the story is set up is almost like a Bethesda RPG, whose games I really love. You know—you could be the Courier or the Dovahkiin, in where choosing which side/person to support will guarantee their victory. Each side has its cons and pros, so they aren’t wholly good or evil either. Unlike some people, I didn’t really mind the Christian influences in the cults, since it was presented decently enough. The tarot cards and the Revelations references were also interesting, which made me like the book at the start. And then the special InstaLuv Microwave Meals had to kick in . . .What makes Mia attracted to Jeremy? I have no clue. The first time they meet, he tries to kill her while she’s sleeping. Their second meeting occurs in school, in where she doesn’t recognize him. The first thing that interests her is his blue eyes, which as a purple-prose like description somewhere which I couldn't recall.Um, okay. So what else do you like about him, Mia, besides the fact he tried to stab you with a knife . . . and . . . um . . . ?
