Elusive like the breath of a sigh.

8 cubes of ice for a drink that's quite nice.
32 edges; not silly green hedges.

This was a terrifically stated teaser, for the answer. I can admire your math skills, but it is apparent to anyone who has taken enough math. I did enjoy your teaser. The title is good, too.

Nothing personal, but I don't like the teasers that require abstract and obscure knowledge where you have either heard of it or you haven't.

I only got this because of the hint. If you've ever read the book, you're bound to get this one right.
