A paragraph from Redemption Road: A Novel, by John Hart:

People filed out. The big patrolman waited until the end and brushed Elizabeth with a shoulder as he passed. The contact was swift, but she felt it all the way down, a large man using his size. She watched him go.

What does "but she felt it all the way down" mean?

    Normally you'd expect it to be stated what she felt it down. We just have to guess. Maybe it's her arm, or her whole body? I wouldn't bother guessing; I'd just put it down to poor writing. – ralph.m Dec 11 '18 at 7:34
