I first read this book years ago. I wish that Peter Hoeg had chosen to do a series of novels with Smilla as the central character. She would have been the female version of Harry Hole of Jo Nesbo's novels. Regardless, I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys the darker atmosphere of Scandinavian crime novels.

Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow (published in America as Smilla's Sense of Snow) (Danish: Frøken Smillas fornemmelse for sne) is a 1992 novel by Danish author Peter Høeg. During her Greenland childhood, Smilla developed an almost intuitive understanding of all types of snow and their characteristics.

In this darkness our faces are merely pale, shining orbs, but even so I can sense the disapproval of the pastor and the verger directed at my black net stockings and at Juliane’s whimpering, made worse by the fact that she took disulfiram this morning and is now confronting her grief almost sober. They think that she and I have no respect for either the weather or the tragic circumstances.

Based upon the bestseller by Peter Hoeg, "Miss Smilla's feeling for snow", it would have been hard for the movie to disappoint. The performances by all are exceptional, not least Julia Ormonds portrayal of Smilla, as icy as the landscape that involves (and evolves) the movie. I couldn't recommend this story enough to fans of the book, or anyone who is interested in seeing a movie that is not your ordinary run of the mill hollywood movie, but one with depth, character and genuine emotion.

Peter Hoeg proves that serious literature can be both entertaining and artful. On the surface, "Smilla's Sense of Snow" is genre fiction. But dig a little deeper, and there is a character study of great sensitivity, a setting with symbolic value and profound themes about loss. Unlike other densely-plotted thrillers, this book rewards re-reading. Terrific punch and pace. Published by Thriftbooks

Now have the hardback version, kindle version, and the film on DVD. What can I say? I love this book. The female protagonist, Smilla has a rich inner life and her thought processes are even more compelling than the action in the novel. This is a thinking person's book. My other top ten books of all time are not fiction and yet Smilla's Sense of Snow has remained on the list for two decades or so. Smilla is a character than cannot be experienced in the film, since so much of the novel is in the first person. The author Peter Hoeg is able to use Smilla to explore complex subjects of parent-child relationships, grief and loss, the sense of being an outsider in one's world, self-sufficiency, self-awareness, etc. I cannot help but be smitten by Smilla's mind. It is amazing to me how real Smilla seems to me as a person. Not as a fictional woman as written by a man, but as a real living, breathing person. I believe that Peter Hoeg has never written anything better. Of course, I am merely a reader and not a literay critic, but I will always love the spirit and resilience of Smilla, even if I can only meet her in this novel. BTW, her fascination with Euclidean geometry, snow, and ice is also an enjoyable and important part of who she is. Being an American, and not experiencing the class discrimination of Groenlanders in modern Danish society, I cannot comment on that, but I can see simitlarities that occur with all marginalized citizens of any society. This book is well worth reading for multiple reasons. I would give it 6 or 10 stars if I could ....

Captures your interest at first, but then really flags in the middle and the ending is terrible. It just seems to get lost halfway through. The entire section of the book on the ship could have been deleted with no loss, and the ending should have been developed more. I stuck with it to find out what the big mystery was, only to be very disappointed. And then the book just ends, without finding out what happens to the mechanic or any other character.

I liked the character of Smilla. She reminded me of Elizabeth Salander, the character I liked in the Dragon Tattoo series. . The story was told in an unusual fashion. Often Smilla would be describing a present scene in the first person and then the author would backtrack to provide the details and build an understanding of what Smilla was experiencing. There were a little too many details about the ship in the last 1/3 of the story but I skimmed through some of those descriptive passages. The characters were well developed and the plot was interesting. The ending was quite improbable but worked well enough. I enjoyed the historical and cultural references.

Beautiful writing. Intelligent plot. Never believed understanding snow, ice, tides, shipping and Greenland could result in something so thought provoking. This book gets under your skin. It finds a place in your memories. I'm a tough review person. Would have given 5 stars if some things had been wrapped up a little tighter. Thanks Peter Hoeg.

if you like detail and interesting viewpoints, this is the book for you. I personally learnt a great deal about snow from the character who is from Greenland. There is much detail regarding the culture of Greenlanders vs. the Danes. I found it enthralling and I love learning about cultures around the world.

A "maths and sciency" thriller. I enjoyed this book thoroughly, because it was an enjoyable read without being brain-candy. There are lots of characters to sort out and keep hold of. So, as you are reading don't gloss over someone who may seem insignificant. I had to reread and go back to figure out the back story on characters a few times. I wished I had been warned. Otherwise, it was a nice, thrilling, informative read about interesting characters in The North. It served as a great escape from reality, and I feel slightly more informed about life in Greenland and global politics.
