Hi! When I was reading Jay Asher's 13 Reasons Why, I came across this sentence, "And the more we spoke, I knew why," and I was wondering what it might mean. Here is the context:
It seemed like you could know me. Like you could understand anything I told you. And the more we spoke, I knew why. The same things excited us. The samethings concerned us. (p. 210)
The sentence in question reminds me of the structure "the+comparative, the+comparative" as in The more I know him, the more I like him, but the latter part of the sentence has no "the+comparative." I would very much appreciate it if you share with me what you think about the sentence. Thank you!
