Smilla’s sense of snow

Right now I’m waiting for my project group to get here so we can start working on a presentation we’re having next week. I hate working on a Sunday, to be honest.

Meanwhile I’m reading Miss Smilla’s feeling for snow (Smilla’s sense of snow, US) by the Danish author Peter Høeg. If you’re looking for some Scandinavian read, I’m definitely recommending this! It’s an award winning book about a lonesome Greenlandic woman with an intuitive understanding of snow. She lives in Copenhagen and investigates the suicide of a boy, which turns out to be a murder.

    Thanks for the advice, I’ve been wanting to read something like this. I love how “worn” your book looks!<3

    I’ve seen the movie, and I remember it was great. Now I really know I should read the novel as well. Swedish Love Affair has gotten me into all things Scandinavian :)

    I read the book years ago, when it was published in Italian, and I enjoyed it a lot, it’s really like a full insight into a special, fascinating althought hard world. Bye from Rome!
