The Way of Knowing


What are we knowing?

Who knows.

Knowing that this book will never end?

What we get is some lovely telling. No really. We’re told that Eragon asks after her and that she answers briefly. Really. That’s pretty much it almost word for word. With all the other expositing and rambling Paolini does in this book, a brief exchange between two main characters right before they spar is too much? How does Eragon greet her? The text says, “as he had done every day since arriving at the city”.

Which is how?

They then start their spar, using shields this time because “it was closer to the reality of actual combat, and it introduced a welcomed element of variety into their duels”. While I don’t really have a problem with them using shields and I do think it’s going to be used in combat, the two of them have been in combat before and I don’t recall them using shields
