Zetmolm: Yes, I felt totally cheated when reading Smilla's sense of snow
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
It won't ruin a book for me though.
