I found the SIMILAR WORDS (or whatever) category a little confusing. On some clues they wanted both words and on others they spotted you one. I couldn't process what they wanted quickly enough.
Sorry, Alex. There was no à in the middle of Thomas Becket's name. It was erroneously added hundreds of years later, possibly in imitation of Thomas à Kempis (who would have hastened to instruct the error maker that it is not his humble self that one should be imitating). People in the know leave it out.
That bust of Beethoven looked nothing like any portrait I've seen. I finally guessed correctly, but with the game on pause, because the cloth around the neck area look to be from the right time period.
I knew Ursula K. Le Guin had died in the past couple of years. I didn't remember it was just this past January. Sadly, I find The Farthest Shore
--which they used as a way of talking about Le Guin's own death--to be a really dull read. I love the first two Earthsea books and then that third one just d r a g g g g zzzzzzz. I'd have been much happier if the clue had snuck in a reference to The Lathe of Heaven
. Highly recommended. I re-read that one every few years.
I thought the man's name was Guillotte and they added the -ine to refer to his device. So close.
