Thank you, Allan... this is classically bad stuff. Sometimes I browse
books in the "fiction" section of a bookstore (which excludes
hardboiled, excludes us, mind you) and when I see the adjectives and
adverbs and the lungeds and the shockinglys and the deprecatinglys and
the softly whispereds, I quickly put the book down. It turns me off.
It reminds me of infomercials, the lowest known species of writing.
