Tobas suppressed a gasp at the sight of its wingspan, which he guessed at over a hundred feet.
С яростным ревом дракон расправил крылья, и Тобас чуть не вскрикнул, увидев их колоссальный размах. Никак не меньше сотни футов!

He waved both arms, nodded his head, opened his mouth, but nothing came from his throat but a discordant gasp.
Он замахал обеими руками, закивал головой, открыл рот, но из горла его вырвалось одно только сиплое, беззвучное дыхание.

Clay heard a soft thump as she went to her knees on the carpet, then more gagging. A pause, a gasp, and then she was vomiting.
Клай услышал глухой стук, должно быть, она опустилась на колени на ковре, снова булькающие звуки, пауза, а потом ее вырвало.

Six shades of mascara—ranging in color from a light blue to a “pouty black”—were accompanied by an eyelash curler and two eyelash combs in case of (gasp) clumps.
Тушь шести оттенков – от голубой до угольно-черной, – а к ней щипчики для завивки ресниц и гребешки для расчесывания ресниц на случай (чур меня) комочков.

He made as if to leap from the bed, but Torpenhow's arms were round him, and Torpenhow's chin was on his shoulder, and his breath was squeezed out of him. He could only gasp, 'Blind!' and wriggle feebly.
Он сделал движение, словно хотел выскочить из кровати, но Торпенгоу обхватил его обеими руками и прижался подбородком к его плечу, так что он едва мог дышать, и, слабо сопротивляясь, он повторял одно только слово: ослеп! ослеп!

For a moment, the breath went out of Scarlett’s lungs in a sickening gasp and she could only stare at the fat old lady who was so obviously pleased at the effect of her statement.
Скарлетт так охнула, что у нее закололо в груди; широко раскрыв глаза, она уставилась на старушку, а та была просто в восторге от впечатления, которое произвели ее слова.
