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.

The Apartment Next Door - William Andrew Johnston I am surprised by the negative reviews here about this book. I enjoyed it very much. Maybe the critics forgot that this story is set in the first world war, with relatively simple methods of expionage, compared to later periods. The book is simply a good read. I was very much surprised by it, when I discovered it.
