really liked it

This book came up on my status update, and I noticed I had given it 3 stars. I'm raising it to 4, because even tho I read it so long ago, I remember Smilla. And all the different types of snow, altho I couldn't tell you the exact words. (Here in the US there's only the word snow, whereas Inuits have many different words to specify the type of snow. I found that fascinating.)

I remember getting completely engrossed, so between that and the fact that the book still lingers in my mind decades later, surely raises it to a 4.

RandomAnthony I've sort of circled this book for a couple years. Maybe I should read it in the winter, though.

Lori Definitely! Now that I think of it, I did, and it helped cast me into the book even more. And the next time it snowed, I observed it more thoroughly. As a matter of fact, I still do notice different types, and I don't ski!
