I'm writing a story and I want my character to burst through the door, not literally through the door, however, I didn't want to use the phrase "burst through the door" but am stuck as to another phrase or perhaps verb to use instead. Any suggestions?
Flinging himself to the window, he wrenched up the frame, just as the wolf's head erupted through the door, snarling and terrible.
Or from The Dancing Boy by Ishani Kar Purkayastha--figuratively through the opening:
As the monsoon clouds erupted, ma erupted through the door into Moyur's room.
From the perspective of someone already in the room it might be said:
He erupted from the door
A picturesque alternative is: He exploded through the door!
Your characters "crashed" through that door!
crashed verb crashed, crashing, crashes: 1. a. To break violently or noisily; smash: The dishes crashed to pieces on the floor. b. To undergo sudden damage or destruction on impact: The car crashed into a tree. see, the Free Dictionary
