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.

Frost at Christmas - R.D. Wingfield The first book about Frost, giving roughly the contents of the first film of the tv-series. The storylines differ a bit from those in the film. And the character Frost certainly differs. Anyway, those who love the tv-series should also read the book. The book is always better than the film, as we all know. I gave it four stars, maybe because the plot did not contain many surprises after having seen the tv film. I enjoyed reading this book nevertheless, and more Frost books will certainly appear on my lists.
