I feel as though this just wasn’t meant for me. On some level the beginning did draw me in in such a whimsical way and the bike notes was rather okay.
Perhaps it just wasn’t to my liking the way it was written afterwards and I began to wonder where did it lead me.
In the beginning, the narrator is not only believable but I could easily believe him and understand him as well as like him. And that his whimsical attitude did feel rather interesting.
But I just didn’t like the format it was written in although detailed about the bicycle but I didn’t find it intriguing nor really enticing to read about. And the war, wasn’t too much of an interest and I did think that I read a repitition of the passage in another form.
Overall, I just didn’t like this for the format but otherwise it was enjoyable.
