Have you tried The Dry?
What is category of this one ?
Crime and drama
The Dry is an Australian debut! Fanulous

Crime ? Historical ? Sci Fi ? Classic ? Victorian ?
I am into Sci Fi and Crime 🙂
Have you read Terry Pratchett? If not, try Guards! Guards!, Men At Arms, Night Watch – hell, any of the Sam Vimes books.
Crime and Punishment – the ultimate crime novel!
For sci-fi, Flowers For Algernon.
Actually, look up the Science Fiction Masterworks and Crime Masterworks imprints, published via Orion or Gollancz – I forgot which, but both provide a wide and varied list of excellent examples in their respective genres.
The Fifth Season. The Girl With all the Gifts.
John Scalzi. He has become my favorite Sci Fi writer. Try Old Man’s War or Fuzzy Nation. Redshirts is also good. Have you read Ready Player One? It’s really good and a fun read.
These are all excellent recommendations
Thank you ?
That looks interesting ??
I like Gaiman’s books because of his positive world view. He celebrates cultural diversity.
11-22-63 by Stephen King. I am NOT a fan of him, but this one is so interesting. Not his usual style. I drug all 900 pages of it all over Thailand with me! https://www.amazon.com/11-22-63-Stephen-King/dp/1501120603
