I finally finished my penultimate book Miss Smilla’s Feeling for Snow recommended to me by Deborah Welford. I have to admit it’s my own complacency that caused the late finish. I rather foolishly assumed that during my Madrid trip I’d have plenty of time to read… How wrong I was.
So at last, but by no means least, here’s my review of Miss Smilla’s Feeling for Snow.
“I was recommended this book by a friend and finally got around to reading it last year.”
“The book is a translation but works really well telling the story of Smilla Jasperson who investigates the death of a young boy from the roof of her apartment block. This is thought to be an accident but she soon suspects there to be more to it than this.”
“The story centres on her intuitive powers in relation to snow and how this helps her in her investigations. The story develops with her finding her way on board a ship with a mysterious cargo headed for Greenland and she discovers the reasons behind the young boys death.”
“A very clever story that transported me into an icy world of mystery.”
Miss Smilla’s Feeling for Snow was a really enjoyable book filled with mystery, intrigue, murder and suspense. The book follows the journey of Smilla Jasperson after the death of her neighbour and friend Isaiah.
The story follows Smilla’s investigation of Isaiah’s death and as the story unravels she discovers there’s more to this than meets the eye.
The story takes Smilla on-board a ship heading the the ice fields of Greenland where she battles to find the truth!
I really enjoyed reading this book and it kept me on the edge of my seat wanting to find out more. My only criticism of the book is the ending, it left me wanting a more satisfactory explanation of the discovery under the ice and hoping for a 2nd book.
I’d definitely recommend you read this book!
