TWINE - the missing line?
Posted 10 June 2001 - 05:32 PM
The UK edition of Raymond Benson's novelization THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH ends with the paragraph:
"Their bodies melded once again into a perfect cadence, inspired by the crackling explosions of the fireworks above them."
Okay. But the U.S. edition ends with:
"Their bodies melded once again into a perfect rhythm, inspired by the crackling explosions of the fireworks above them, completely unaware that elsewhere in the city at least one mother was singing her children to sleep with a plaintive lullaby."
Weird? Of course, their are numerous differences between the U.S. and UK Fleming books (I always try to read the UK editions), but I wasn't aware until now that there are differences in the Benson books.
Are there any others changes? Does anyone know why this last line was cut from the UK edition? Does anyone care?

I would like to read this list. Do you remember where you saw it?

I was reading a comparison list between Benson and Gardner Novels UK and US editions and there are numerous differences, especially in the Gardner novels.
