well Mlle C should solve it, she was so lazy in the last weeks...biggrin.png and what means "to work in a thank-you"? that's not a building or a committee, or I can't think straight this evening...wink.png

That's what I meant when I said in my last post that you should consider "work in" and "in there" as a whole biggrin.png  to work in - etwas einarbeiten, einflechten

So she thinks that in the place where she is ("in there") it's hard for her to include ("work in") a "thank you" to him.

Il vivait. Il mourut quand il n'eut plus son ange;
La chose simplement d'elle-même arriva,
Comme la nuit se fait lorsque le jour s'en va.

I didn't get whatever both of you are yakking about laugh.png? Is this about a female assassin with a conscience (a spy novel)?

Not a spy novel and not an assassin...but let's say the (female) main character has and certainly needs the qualities of a professional assassin where she is....

Yes, that's it ! It's quite at the beginning when Peeta gets reaped and Katniss remembers how he saved her from starvation some time ago, and that now she might have to kill him.

Whoohoo, it's your turn again ! I can't actually recall how long it's been since you last had to post a quote tongue.png

yup Tabs, it was such a loong time ago when I didn't have any grey hair and not a single wrinkle on my face...:lol:

 

this one's 21st century...not english and a very very intense novel....:D

 

Are you there, Dad?

Are you there Rufus? Have you been waiting for me?

Anyways, I remember something the old boy said. Death sets the soul free. Sets the frickin soul free. Does it? Damned if I know. We'll see.

I still have no idea... DACH cannot be, French or Spanish perhaps, but Rufus is mostly used in anglophone countries, and not there...Italian perhaps.

Umberto Eco? I cannot remember many Italian authors of worldwide importance...

nope, none of the above and Rufus died a very expensive and ecstatic (while listening to a concerto) death -that's a very good clue....:lol:

ok, I eliminated most of the countries (as suggested by Tabs) so there aren't a lot left...and this novel was part of a series...lots of violence (very creative) in it and really a thrill ride....:D
