"Mr. Nimbus and the School Bullies" Reviews
Mehreen Ahmed's review
Mr. Nimbus and the School Bullies by Leoncio Opio is a fast-paced novel written to show school bullies and the effects of it on school children. The book would matter a great deal to those who have been bullied at school or a bully themselves. An eye-opener to many, and a valuable contribution to society, this can bring about a change in our school playground, if one were to take this story on board and seriously look at the psychological ramifications as a consequence of these problems.
The Davey Brothers.
To the other denizens of Jamestown Middle School, that name was as frightening as “Al Capone” or “The James Gang” would have been to the citizens of a small town in times past.
Mark and Michael Davey ruled the school. There was nothing that the other kids could do—those being tormented knew that telling on them would bring more agony, and those who witnessed the brothers’ “work” knew better than to open their mouths. No way did they want to endure what the Davey Brothers could inflict.
Eliza, Jonathan, and George are some of the brothers’ favorite targets, and life is getting desperate for them. How would they ever survive middle school?
Enter the new teacher, Mr. Nimbus. No one looks for him to rescue them; after all, the teachers themselves turn a blind eye to what is going on. They don’t want odd things to happen to them or their belongings either. They doubt he’ll be any different.
Soon enough, though, Mr. Nimbus (who had witnessed the terrorizing style of Mark and Michael), has befriended the trio of bullied victims. He tells them that, with a simple wish, all of the problems with the Daveys would be over.
Now, since their new teacher didn’t have wings and a wand, Jonathan and his friends are very skeptical about this wish thing.
Until they try it.
You see, there is something very magical about a wish—and about Mr. Nimbus.
It’s hard to fathom that a book about bullies and bullying could be heart-warming. But this book is definitely just that. Mr. Opio takes an all-too-common scenario and turns it on its ear. His tale makes the reader think about consequences—on both sides of the conflict.
His heart—and thus his writing—is fair and just. Not only that, however—it makes for an intelligent, entertaining, and thought-provoking read. Highly recommended!
I won this book through Goodreads First Reads, so I am giving my honest review. I typically don't review so harshly, but I feel this needs to be said. I received this book in the mail yesterday, and started it an hour ago... i'm only on page 31 and already this is the worst piece of literature (if you can even call it that) that i've ever read. The plot is fine, but the writing is horrible, editing is atrocious, and even the cover art is nothing at all special. I've read 31 pages, and found 46 mistakes. Some of them were comma placement mistakes, but a lot of the mistakes were complete words that should had been in a different tense, and some of the mistakes were just so horrible I had to cross out half of the sentence and rewrite it myself! All in all, if I saw a book like this at a yard sale for $0.25 I still would not pick it up, and I will not be reading anything else by Mr. Opio. I will most likely continue reading this book, just to finish editing it myself for the next unlucky reader, but I will not be keeping this in my own personal library.
