I read books (and place a review here afterwards) in the following categories Mystery/Detective, British literature (mostly older books, from Gutenberg.org), Adventure, some Dutch lieterature and more.

My top favorite writers are John Galsworthy, Wilkie Collins, Charles Dickens, but among my five-star reviews you will also find (debuts of) contemporary writers. A recent example is Gillian Flynn. I mostly read ebooks.

Tender Is the Night - F. Scott Fitzgerald I had seen a tv series after this book a long time ago, and that series left a good impression with me. Now, many years later, I have read the book, and I must say that it disappointed me. The story simply could not grip me and I even had some difficulty in finishing the book. The three stars I gave are also baded on my impression by the tv series. For the book only I would probably just give two stars.
