"Two or Three" Book Club, Meeting 127
When we last left the little prince, he was weeping piteously in the grass and I could hardly stand it. If I hadn't already known what was coming next, I would have read on and this readalong would be structured very differently.
"Bitte . . . zaehme mich"
I'd ask if there are three more beautiful words in the German language, but Der Kleine Prinz was originally written in French. And it's possible I'm reacting to the words in ways that native German speakers never would.
