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.

Thuvia, Maid of Mars  - Edgar Rice Burroughs This fourth part of the Barsoom series is a very good read. Some new groups of inhabitants of Barsoom are introduced, and the story is good. The main character in this book is not John Carter (who only appears in a few lines) but his son Carthoris. He has to save Thuvia, who has been abducted. Because rumours have been spread that Carthoris abducted her, he also has to save her and his own honor.
