They had not gone more than a few yards when from behind them came a sound, startling and horrible in the heavy padded silence: a gurgling, bubbling noise, and a long venomous hiss.
Другим проходом они не пробежали и двух саженей, как сзади послышалось невыносимо жуткое в плотном беззвучье урчанье, бульканье и долгий, шипящий присвист.

It was a day of surprises, a, day that solved past riddles and suggested new ones, a day of startling revelations, and still more hopeless perplexity.
Это был день неожиданностей, день развязок прежнего и завязок нового, резких разъяснений и еще пущей путаницы.

"I plead guilty to drunkenness and dissipation," he exclaimed, again in a startling, almost frenzied, voice, "to idleness and debauchery.
-- Признаю себя виновным в пьянстве и разврате, -- воскликнул он каким-то опять-таки неожиданным, почти исступленным голосом, -- в лени и в дебоширстве.

Sherlock Holmes's earnest demeanour had so far convinced us that we all sat in silence, watching the animal intently, and expecting some startling effect.
Серьезность Холмса так подействовала на нас, что мы молча, как завороженные, следили за собакой, ожидая чего-то необычайного.

Five of them, indeed, appeared to be trying to get some sleep, and were tackling the problem in a startling but sensible manner. They were lying beside the raft, half submerged in the dust, rather like floating rubber dolls.
Пятеро из них, очевидно, решили поспать немного, избрав способ не совсем обычный, но в общем-то вполне разумный: они просто-напросто легли рядом с плотом, словно резиновые куклы, погрузившись наполовину в лунную пыль.

It was easy to cry, because she was so cold and miserable, but the effect was startling. Frank could not have been more embarrassed or helpless if she had suddenly begun disrobing.
Ей ничего не стоило заплакать, потому что она продрогла и чувствовала себя такой несчастной, но это произвело на Фрэнка поистине ошеломляющее впечатление. Если бы она вдруг принялась при нем раздеваться, он едва ли был бы более смущен и растерян.
