Customer Review

on 31 July 2000
The pace of this story is too often peppered with overlong digressions into Smilla's past and lectures on the nature of snow and ice. While the book is building to its climax, it's like watching a film that is being continually interrupted by adverts. The denouement is also a let down, with the book's big secret being neither particularly earth shattering or used as well as it could have been. All-in-all, I found this to be an unsatisfying read, full of unsympathetic characters that I neither cared about nor wanted to know more about.
