    rewrote it considerably/considerably rewrote it

    But before the selection committee received the manuscript, a third party rewrote it considerably at your direction.
    (H. Murakami; 1Q84)

    Would it change your perception of the sentence if I rewrote it this way:
    But before the selection committee received the manuscript, a third party considerably rewrote it at your direction.

    Thanks.
