Male Versus Female Writers. Which is better?

I like serious books. In fact, crime novels are my favourite. I need to be drawn into a story by strong characters. I read at night because it is the time when I want to switch off from the world. I read paperback because I am afraid the brightness of an e- reader would disturb…
