That scene was so moving. I was thinking about it after you picked
up that sentence, and realised that it was more effective for being
subtle. Well, not subtle, actually, but not laid on with a trowel.
And then of course, I thought that DWJ does this as well - writes
gut-wrenching scenes which never once cause you to do the "ok, ok, we
got the *point* here - a few thousand suffering words ago!" bit.
