Miss Smilla’s Feeling for Snow, Peter Hoeg

One snowy day in Copenhagen, six-year-old Isaiah falls to his death from a city rooftop.The police pronounce it an accident. But Isaiah's neighbour, Smilla, an expert in the ways of snow and ice, suspects murder. She embarks on a dangerous quest to find the truth, following a path of clues as clear to her as footsteps in the snow.

    Sorry won't be able to be there tonight feeling unwell. I've read most of the book v good. A lot of refs to Greenlanders being treated as second class citizens compared to Danes. Interesting its a male author but a female protagonist. Kind of reminded me of a cross between the Steig Larson books and Patricia Cornwell. Hope to be there next time with whole book read lol!

    Hi folks, I won't be at the meeting tomorrow but I did read the book and thought overall it was great, though it did take me a while to connect with the style of writing. I thought the story was really well developed and a lot of the thoughts and side comments added to the development and mood. I'd give it 9 out of 10 if we were voting.
