Some small part of Raven recognized that the thought should be appalling to her, yet with her body needing his so desperately, she craved his mouth on her, felt hunger herself.
Какой-то частью своего сознания Рейвен понимала, что эта мысль должна быть ей отвратительна, но ее тело так отчаянно нуждалось в нем, она так страстно желала почувствовать на себе его губы, ощутить его голод.

What follows will show that in the era of President Putin, the appalling practice of political-psychiatry-to-order has returned to become part of our everyday life, and from an unexpected direction.
И этот исторический экскурс тут совершенно необходим – именно потому, что во времена президентства Путина наша самая страшная история – заказная политическая психиатрия, – опять вошла в наш ежедневный быт с той стороны, откуда ее вовсе и не ожидали…

Mihail Averyanitch soon made friends with everyone, and moving from one seat to another, kept saying loudly that they ought not to travel by these appalling lines.

The landlady showed me to his chambers- two rooms on the third floor of this feeble building- and I found him at home with his wife and four small children, who made the most appalling noises.
Домовладелица указала мне его комнаты. Он занимал две комнаты на третьем этаже этого шаткого строения. Я застал его дома вместе с женой и четырьмя детьми, издающими самые ужасающие звуки.

I realized suddenly, with appalling clarity, that I’d just spoken of our conversations in past tense, as if they were ended forever.
До меня вдруг с болезненной ясностью дошло, что в течение всего разговора я говорю о наших встречах в прошедшем времени, как будто они прекратились навсегда.

The scientific paraphernalia made him nervous; he looked over his shoulder and there outside she was watching him without a smile; he saw her as a stranger, a shabby child from Nelson Place, and he was shaken by an appalling resentment.
Мудреная штука привела его в смущение, он оглянулся через плечо — там, снаружи, она без улыбки наблюдала за ним, он посмотрел на нее, как на незнакомое существо, как на маленькую нищенку с Нелсон-Плейс. И тут его охватила страшная злость.

it is sad enough, Poole, ay, and appalling to consider; but it is plain and natural, hangs well together, and delivers us from all exorbitant alarms."
Это очень печально, даже ужасно, но, во всяком случае, понятно и естественно, все объясняет и избавляет нас от излишних тревог.

To cock and poise his rifle were the acts of a single moment and a single motion: then aiming almost without sighting, he fired into the bushes where he knew a body ought to be, in order to sustain the appalling countenance which alone was visible.
В одно мгновение он поднял карабин, взвел курок и, почти не целясь, выстрелил в кусты, где, как он знал, должен был находиться индеец и откуда видна была лишь его страшная физиономия.
