Smilla’s Feeling for Snow is possibly my favourite book ever. I love Smilla and I love the details about ice and the Artic, as well as the plot. I’ve got a cold at the moment and it’s my comfort read but I’ve nearly finished it and don’t have much else lined up. If you liked it, what else did you enjoy? Thanks!
When people respond to your thread op, or if you have any insight, would someone mind explaining to me the one sentence in that otherwise perfectly normal book which is absolutely freaky sex-wise?!?!?!
I love Smilla and it’s possibly my favourite book, apart from the ending. Very difficult to recommend further reading based on this book as it’s so unique. But I would recommend reading The Snowman by Jo Nesbo before the film comes out - highly atmospheric and scared the crap out of me!!
I liked Miss Smilla and I liked The Snow Child. I also liked all of Peter Hoeg's other books (have read all, in translation, other than his newest). Some are rather dark though. I read several David Gutersons after Miss Smilla: snow falling on cedars, east if the mountains, the country ahead of us, the country behind.
I enjoyed books by Finnish author Pasi Ilmari Jaaskelainen- the rabbit back literature society, and where the trains turn. Also Frederik Backman A man called Ove, and Britt-Marie was here. I enjoy Annie Proulx and Haruki Murakami too.
Oh, some of these look fab, and I had forgotten about Murakami, I’ve liked a lot of his books. Also I haven’t heard of whatshouldireadnext - I sometimes use Goodreads but find the recommendations hit and miss. Got the weekend evenings to myself this weekend so feel a bit of book shopping coming on....
It's one of my favourite books. Apparently The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series were inspired by the heroine, but I didn't enjoy the one I read at all. I agree with the Annie Proulx suggestion, especially That Old Ace in the Hole.
