  Open Question: Could anybody please help me
This is the text : The book i read is "Les Combustibles" by Amelie Nothomb. This book is very interesting. I liked it very much. The book is based on a theathre with only 3 actors: Marina, The theacher & Daniel. Even if the action takes place in only one room,the "actors" manage to create an image of the war outside and of the university. The whole book's idea is about dehumanization and about the importance of books,and the three "actors",with completely different opinions,debate the subject about using or not books for combustibles for getting some heat in their room because they were freezing. The one i liked the most was The teacher. About him is observable that he is losing the "war against dehumanization". I also liked Marina because she already considered the war lost and she came with the idea of burning the books. I loved one of the teacher's quotes : "when we will burn the books,that's when we will lose the war!" In conclusion,Amelie's book surprised me with a very original theme.

  Resolved Question: What is the word for
When you drink excess amounts of water, you are in a state of something. I think it begins with hydro. I'm not really sure. I remember reading it in Amélie Nothomb's 'life of hunger' and now I can't remember what it was!! Can anyone help me? thank you x It's not what it leads to, it's the desire to drink a lot of water
