Entry: excitatingly (adj.)
In context: "...the same way a deep-sea sportsman knows the fish-species that fight most fiercely and excitatingly for their marine lives."
Definition: A variant on excite (v.), which well, you know. I thought it might be more... exciting... too.
Other: Truly a horrible section of the book to read, if you're following along.
