And what sort of a river was it? This passage from the Lippincott edition illustrates something of his tone: So you must not trust Dennis, because he is in the habit of giving pleasant answers: In contrast, the Facsimile Classics edition from Mayflower books contracts all six pages into two sentences:.
Tom thought nothing about what the river was like. Certainly this makes the passage less offensive, but it also turns it into awkward, silted prose. A full hundred yards broad it was, sliding on from broad pool to broad shallow, and broad shallow to broad pool, over great fields of shingle, under oak and ash coverts, past low cliffs of sandstone, past green meadows, and fair parks, and a great house of grey stone, and brown moors above, and here and there against the sky the smoking chimney of a colliery.
But Tom thought nothing about what the river was like. To give an idea of just how much abridgement is deemed necessary to appeal to a modern audience, consider that the original text is pages in length, while the Facsimile Classics edition is pages in large print , and the Puffin Classics just Abridgements, of course, always raise questions about what is being excised, and to what extent passages can be edited while remaining true to the spirit of the original.
Perhaps the most extreme abridgement is represented by the s Water-Babies picture books from the Good Night, Sleep Tight Storybook series. Skip to main content. Search Beyond the Reading Room. Streeter was to find where the money was hidden. Seemed simple enough, but they weren't the only ones looking: A shady lawyer, his two thugs with their own agenda, and there seemed to be a cop in the mix. Dec 18, Will Decker rated it really liked it. There is no graphic sex, though some is hinted at.
There is very little graphic violence, though a lot is hinted at. And there is very little real excitement, though a lot is hinted at.
Yet, the writing is so smooth and the characters so believable, the story flows flawlessly. Great editing, great detail, and with a hint of noir, it was a real pleasure to read. Stone knows his subject matter and it shows in all the right ways. This story introduces him and his idiosyncrasies. He shares many of the characteristics of Doolittle's Tom Bethany. The story itself wasn't my favorite but I think this Streeter guy has some better stories in his future and I plan to keep an eye out for his adventures.

Where Nothing is Impossible
As described in notes about the author, " Many sleazy characters but an entertaining story that was indeed original. Jan 09, Cindy rated it really liked it. This is good crime noir and Streeter is a fun protagonist with a kind of wry sense of humor. Lots of red herrings, ulterior motives and untrustworthy characters. The twisty parts at the end are fun.

Things like this that kids can make for themselves are expensive. Another trend you may be noticing—donate shit that costs a lot of money. That helps us more than all the shitty green bean cans in the world But they are so helpful for busy working families where the parents may not have a set schedule and sometimes little Amanda is making her own breakfast before she runs off to school. This is one people never think of! But if you show up with a bunch of preferably reduced sugar stuff bottles of juice at my door, oh man, you are gonna get so many check mark and okay hand emoticons.
A friend of a friend won a free consultation with Clinton Kelly of What Not To Wear , and she was very excited, because she has a plus-size body, and wanted some tips on how to make the most of her wardrobe in a fashion culture which deliberately puts her body at a disadvantage. Her first question for him was this: She always assumed it was because so many celebrities have, by nature or by design, very slender frames, and because they can afford very expensive clothing.
But when she watched What Not To Wear , she noticed that women of all sizes ended up in cute clothes that really fit their bodies and looked great. She had tried to apply some guidelines from the show into her own wardrobe, but with only mixed success.
