  • Boring and a waste of time

    I won't say that I hated this book, but I will say that I was disappointed and that it was a waste of time. It starts off... Alright, I suppose. Abby is a teenage girl starting her first day at a new school where she meets Pete, who she immediately develops an interest in, and Eli, who warns her, without evidence and without being asked, that he thinks Pete has killed someone (which is later revealed was a lie he made up because of... Jealousy, I think?). Abby also meets Bailey, who does not have a purpose throughout the novel except to stand in for Eli as the Best Friend when Eli isn't around (which is not often) and to get randomly kidnapped later on. Many characters are introduced that do not make appearances later in the book and seem to be forgotten about (i.e. Pete's friend group at the beginning, Abby's mothers boyfriend, etc.), which left me wondering why they were introduced in the first place. When Abby finally realizes what a dirt bag Pete is, she breaks up with him and he disappears, but not before he vows to get revenge. After that, we are left with a continuous cycle of "I woke up this morning and I ate waffles with my mom and then I went to school and talked to my friends and then I went home and made dinner and then did my homework and went to bed and then the next morning I woke up again and I..." but with a LOT more unnecessary detail for three chapters at LEAST. And then- Surprise! Abby is kidnapped (for the first of three times in the book) by Pete who drives her to the desert to... Kill her? I think? (Pete did not seem to have a plan for if she disagreed to becoming his girlfriend again) And then Eli shows up and saves her (predictably) and then- Surprise again! Eli reveals he has *~°~Magical Powers~°~* that he used to find her and that they are ~**~°Connected Together And He CanFeel Her Emotions°~**~ (~**Oooh, How Romantic**~) Which seemed random. You thought this was going to be just a "love" story? (Actually, it stil is since Eli has been "in love with her since before they met" or whatever). But guess what, now there are "Protectors", of which the explanation for was random and didn't have anything to do with the plot. The concept of Protectors seemed like an afterthought and wasn't necessary for the plot. I feel like it could have just been left as a thriller where the ex-boyfriend stalks the girl, and it seemed to be headed that way for a good portion of it. I've complained about the plot enough, so i'll go on to the characters. Abby herself was boring and lacked personality, and even came across as really stupid at times. Girl got kidnaped THREE TIMES and not ONCE did she think to call the police. One of her captors even let her call her mother and speak to her and she didn't even TRY to get a message out. Like??? What kind of idiot lets themselves be taken and doesn't even TRY to fight back? I don't CARE if they're immortal or whatever, GET THE AUTHORITIES INVOLVED. And Eli. I did not like him. He seemed really annoying, especially since he could feel Abby's emotions. At one point she was alone in her house and felt just a tiny bit lonely and he called and was like "What happened? Are you okay? Why do you feel sad? Is something going on? Do you need me to come over?" Eli, buddy. Chum. Pal. Shes allowed to feel emotions, leave her be. He was not a good love interest, since his whole persolnality seemed to be "he has a nice car and hes cute." Bailey is a background character who also does not have a personality other than "Girly best friend who occasionally shows up to talk about makeup or whatever else teenage girls talk about", because every protagonist needs one of those!!1!1! And Pete? he went from normal to psychopath in .2 seconds flat. Somebody crashed into his car and he got angry, which any normal person would do, but somehow it was a Very Bad Thing. Other than that, his anger outburts were a little over the top. Over all, Obscured felt like a 13 year old on Wattpad wrote it and it needs major work. I do not mean to be harsh, but I found it hard to get attached to with all the needless mundane every day life scenes and the flat characters. It was boring to read ad I wouldnot recommend it to anyone.

    Thanks for your feedback!
