Sorry for yet another message, but I looked through every post on here and I haven't found a mention or opinion of the unused extract involving Jim and the soldier on the pier, that I read on the site.

Have you all read it? What did you think of it?

I think that the way it was written in the book was very powerful - the narrative tailing off leaving the image of a lit ciggarette seemed to me to be a "mature" depiction of the scene, echoing Jim's recent personality development, in that it highlighted Jim's independence.

I wonder if the extract had been included in the book, that it would have made his first time with Doyler a little less powerful (I read the extract on the site before I came to that point in the book anyway, so it was in the back of my mind at Muglins in the book.) It would have been lovely if Jim and Doyler had first been with each other, don't you think?

What are everyone's thoughts?
