But he hid it well....
« on: March 06, 2005, 05:51:34 AM »

Im new here, so I dont know if this has been brought up before.
But has anyone else noticed how often Ray ray uses "he hid it well"
example "If he was angered by this, he hid it well" or "if he was angered, he showed no sign" or something along those lines.
Seems everyone in the kingdom hides their emotions well.

I just find that ammusing that he uses that so often.

I noticed the constant use of the word "the" and the letter E, but he hides it well...

Another thing I have noticed is that Feist will start most chapters with the main character doing an action in a short sentence,  I.E. Tal Smiled, Dash Laughed. I cannot confirm that this is the case all the time, not near my collection, but I know it happens quite regular. I personally like this style it makes it so you are thrust into the place where that part of the book is taking place.

'Tis true. There is one chapter, and one chapter only where this doesn't happen though. Chapter 17 of Mistress of the Empire: Advice.

Go take a look.  :elfgirl_grin:

Chapter one, Magician: "The storm had broken."
Which character would "the storm" be exactly?

Chapter one, Prince of the Blood: "The inn was quiet."
Again, which character would "the inn" be?

Chapter one, Shadow of a Dark Queen: "The trumpet sounded."
(Last time) which character is "the trumpet"? :lol:



I see what you're saying, each chapter starts with a concise sentence.
They're not, however, all about the main character performing an action.


...

And Tal!! You should know better than to blindly agree, and then state as fact something that is untrue (or in this case, we'll say partially untrue). :tongue: Tsk, tsk.

That's actually a pretty darn good question Ash.
For if Pug wasn't caught in that storm, he may never have had that first glimpse into the crystal ball, in which case Kulgan would never have taken him on, in which case he would never have been promoted to a member of the household, in which case he'd never have a horse to ride to the wreckage, in which case....

I could go on and on.

Macros may have indeed caused that storm, thereby ensuring Pugs feet were set on the appropriate track.

Good question indeed.
