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.

King Bhumibol Adulyadej: A Life's Work

The Jacques Futrelle Megapack: 47 Tales of the Thinking Machine and Others
Jacques Futrelle

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe - C.S. Lewis, Pauline Baynes This is the second book from the "Narnia" series. The story is good and the symbolism sometimes striking. I still find it a pity that the series was especially written for young readers. The book, however, is well written and contains enough to make it interesting for adult readers. So, I can certainly recommend it for everyone who likes "fantasy" books.
