    One thought on “The Secret Lives of Bicycles

    1. I really, really enjoyed this little gem of a book It s not long only 41 pages or so, but it packs an emotional punch.This was so different from anything else I have read in the last, say, 5 years, that it s really stayed with me as a story I honestly have to say that about all this author s works because he takes such a different approach to storytelling I say this honestly, because I haven t read anyone like him before He makes me think.The Secret Life of Bicycles by Michael Diack was well wri [...]


    2. A genuinely enjoyable children s story, one of several I ve had the pleasure to read of late Definitely a winner for parents who enjoy reading to their kids, and for kids probably through middle school to read to themselves Fans of Disney movies like Cars should take readily to finding out that bicycles have lives and engaging personalities all their own A subtle sense of humor glues this story together as much as the fine storytelling and very accessible emotions It was very easy to visualize t [...]


    3. Clever, funny, educating and a potential Children Movie Looks like a children book The commuting and childlike adventures of bicycles, Roy and city bicycle Collins, Roy is Collins owner s new neighbour electrically assisted bicycle , Lucy, mountain climbing jakes and other dates Bicycles, according to the author, cannot see humans or animals but live an exciting life blissfully unaware that humans own and power them but are happy and at home to the earth nature and plants Their enemies are the c [...]


    4. This is an imaginative and fun read Readers of all ages will enjoy this story about the Secret Lives of Bicycles Follow Colin on his journey and be a part of his world.This is not the kind of book that I would typically read but I thought it was a neat book and it was easy to read The author did a good job with the characterization of the bicycles and it was overall well written.I would definitely recommend it


    5. The title beckons the reader to a quirky imaginative adventure and the book does not disappoint Bikes cannot see people and believe that they are doing all the riding by themselves either going through streets or office or back home to a shed one bike does not stop at red lights meaning the rider does not , but the bike thinks itself as the reckless one when a bike gets injured flat tyre while being stolen, it thinks it has ended up in hospital when actually it is in a mechanic shed where things [...]


    6. The Secret Lives of Bicycles is a fun, engaging tale of life as told by bicycles Geared towards younger readers, this story takes readers on a wild romp through the ups and downs of life as a bicycle where bicycles are in control of their actions, their lives, and their futures Unable to see the humans that ride them, bicycles exist in a world where they go to work, develop relationships, compete with one another, and feel emotions They have strong feelings about different types of bicycles raci [...]


    7. Colin and the other bikes in the shed aren t aware that they re moved around by humans As far as they re concerned, they go about their business of their own volition Their only worries are motor vehicles and each other s meanness Racing bikes are the meanest They can afford to be, since speed is what counts The anthropomorphized bikes go to work, although their jobs mainly consist on keeping an eye on things wherever they are stationed They gossip, fight and make up, fall in love and apparently [...]


    8. Bicycles lead their own lives, and live in an organized society which has, alas, class distinctions and snobbery like ours They go to work, they, hold your breath, have tricycles if they are chained together Do the tricycles grow up to become bicycles Diack left that out.It is all about perception Just like a dog may think he is the one taking the human being out for a walk, so also the bicycles in this book believe their movements are of their own violation Who are we to disbelieve We believe w [...]


    9. Bicycles are really alive But they are not aware of humans or animals and humans can t hear them.This story isn t that bad really It just seemed awkward at times trying to mesh the bicycle world to the human world.It should appeal to younger readers.
