"It is freezing, an extraordinary minus eighteen degrees Celsius, and it's snowing, and in the language which is no longer mine, the snow is qanik -- big, almost weightless crystals falling in stacks and covering the ground with a layer of pulverised white frost..."
Welcome to the fanlisting for the book and movie Smilla's Sense Of Snow.
One winter evening, the neighbour's six-year-old boy falls to his death from an apartment-block roof in Copenhagen. Accidental death, say the police. But Smilla Jaspersen, a resourceful, tenacious and bloody-minded Greenlander, knows the boy well; moreover she has an uncanny sense of snow -- and those last footprints tell her a tale... Her investigation starts in Denmark and leads to the Artic ice cap as Smilla doggedly homes in on her quarry.
Smilla's Sense Of Snow, also known as Miss Smilla's Feeling For Snow in certain translations, is part compulsive thriller, part philosophical meditation. A genuinely compelling and unique read, it's my favourite fiction book and I love the movie based on it, too. This is the only fanlisting for the book and movie listed at The Fanlistings Network, and at The Book Listings. Take a look around and if you have any questions, drop me a line!
