It took so long to shinny down the ramp, so long to squirm through the grunting standees, so long to slip along the railing and out an opening, so long to hop across the decelerating strips.
Не теряя времени, вниз по трапу протиснуться сквозь толпу недовольных пассажиров, проскользнуть вдоль перил к выходу, пересечь замедляющиеся дорожки.

Twice, after tortuous effort, squirming and twisting, he failed in breasting the big trunk, and on the third attempt, after infinite exertion, he cleared it only to topple helplessly forward and fall on his face in the tangled undergrowth.
Человек дважды тщетно пытался, карабкаясь и извиваясь, переползти через огромный ствол и лишь после третьей попытки почти на исходе сил одолел его только для того, чтобы беспомощно свалиться в густой кустарник.
