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.

A Strange Disappearance - Anna Katharine Green Although this book breathes the pace and morals of its time, it is an enjoyable read. Anna Katherine Green was a master in the detective-writing trade (she seems to have been the great example of Agatha Cristie) and that makes the book still good readable in our time. The plot is solid and there is enough mystery.
