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 Gods of Mars - Edgar Rice Burroughs This second Barsoom book is definitely less interesting than the first. The novelty to read about John Carter being on Barsoom is a bit gone now. And although some interesting new aspects of life on Barsoom (especially about Barsoomian Religion) come forward, the story mainly consists of fighting, which is not my first interest. Still the book is entertaining, hence 3 stars. I have to read the next Barsoom book too, because the end of this book is a cliffhanger.
