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.
My problem is that I read "Lady Audley's Secret just before this book. And after its predecessor this book disappoints a bit. The plot surprises less and it takes quite some time before mystery appears at all. Nevertheless Braddon succeeded again in writing a page-turner. And thetefore four stars. An author to keep in mind!
