I Spy

by Natalie Sumner Lincoln

Nice novel about espionage in WW 1, with some surprises near the end.

The Son of Tarzan

by Edgar Rice Burroughs

A refreshing return to the jungle,in the Tarzan Series. It is, however, Tarzan's son who enters the jungle, and appears to be a true son of his father.

The Forsyte Saga

by John Galsworthy

This is the best book ever written, in my humble opinion. The atmosphere of the old English families is brilliantly pictured. If you found both tv series based on these books more like a soap, then yu should read the books.

In these first parts of the Forsyte books the story is still very good. It becomes a bit less in the later books.

Is there anything more to be said? No. This is a must-read for everybody with a sense of literature.

The Woman in White

by Wilkie Collins

This is a great novel and certainly a must-read. It is a mystery novel you can't put down, because it never is clear where the story will go next.

The story is told by the main characters, in succession, which gives an extra dimension to the book.

Not for nothing (about) six movies, two tv miniseries and a musical (by Andrew Lloyd Webber) were made after this book. Sadly the best one (with Jenny Seagrove and Diana Quick) is not available on dvd. The rest is too much abridged. So, if you want the whole story, read the book. And read it again!
