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.

Les Miserables (Word Cloud Classics)

Les Miserables - Victor Hugo It is many years ago now that I read this book. So it is getting time to re-read it. The book impressed me very much. It has many themes (mystery, adventure, romance, social themes and more) and although it has many pages it never lets your attention drift away. I have given it five stars, because af5er all these years it still impresses me!
