Headscarves....
Snow is a book that did capture my sensibilities like nothing else. It deals with a good lot of issues, all of which are the so significant in the present world. It depicts the opposing forces of Western secularist forces and the so-called fundamentalist Islamic lore. Seculrism is depicted in the book as something more narrow-minded than fundamentalism. The banning of headscarves in the Westernised parts of Turkey is the best example for this. The readers will be left with choices of their own, as the author criticises both the sides, impressively. The poet Ka who walks through the blizzard, trying to fall in love, reconsidering the existence of God and composing impassioned verses may be an apt representation of what the entire world lacks....retrospection, care for others and self-reconciliation.

While not as complex and captivating as The Black Book was, Snow is still very much worth reading. It is very relevant to present political conditions and questions without being too heavy handed, judgemental or simplistic.
