I'm Reading Kafka on the shore, and came across the following sentence:
No sooner do I settle down than my consciousness, like a battery that's lost its charge, starts to fade away, and I fall asleep.
I don't really understand the order and structure of this sentence, would it be wrong to word the bold part like this?:
No sonner than my consciousness, I do settle down.
is this sentence structure the same as something like this?
Never again Will I go there.
Thanks in advance.
