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.

Fiji: A Novel

Fiji: A Novel - Lance Morcan, James Morcan I have read this book with pleasure. I would have liked some more background about the Fiji Islands, but of course a novel is a novel. The story is good and the novel is well written. My point of criticism is that the romance part, especially as it initiates and develops in the first part of the book, is not very convincing.
