Zetmolm: Yes, I felt totally cheated when reading Smilla's sense of snow too.

Things that bug me off: totally inaccurate physics stuff in science-fiction books, and I'm not talking about artistic licence. One that comes most often is authors confusing acceleration and speed: The ship was accelearating at 10% of the speed of light or something like that. 10% of the speed of light is a speed, and an acceleration is a change of speed!

It won't ruin a book for me though.
