I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I’m a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I’m a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I’ve always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often.
I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links.
My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

    This review is fascinating and I'm all for a little something different. 😀

    1. OlgaNunez says:

      Thanks Tess. I’ll pass the good wishes on. I think he’s an author to keep a close eye on for sure. I have my eye set on the next novel on this series for sure.

    Thank you Olga.

    1. OlgaNunez says:

      Thanks to you, Rosie. I’ve discovered many great books through your review site and I’m looking forward to many more.

    Thank goodness you are able to be there for your mother Olga..it must be a huge comfort for her and I am sure she is in the best possible care. XX

    1. OlgaNunez says:

      Thanks, Sally. Yes, I think so. It’s a worry anyway, but at least I’m close by.

    Great review, Olga. I loved this book too! Sending positive thoughts and hugs to you and your mum x

    1. OlgaNunez says:

      Thanks, Shelly. They are very welcome.

  6. barbtaub says:

    Thanks for this terrific review. And best wishes to you and your mother.

    1. OlgaNunez says:

      Thanks, Barb. I hope to have good news to report soon, although they don’t want to rush due to the complexity of the condition.

      1. barbtaub says:

        Good luck to both of you!

        1. OlgaNunez says:

          Thanks, Barb!

    Take care, Olga. Am thinking about you.
    xx

    1. OlgaNunez says:

      Thanks so much, Hugh.

    This sounds like a combination of ‘Escape From New York’, and ‘The Road’. There is a big market for this sort of story, so I wish Dylan well with this new one.
    (And hoping all turns out well for your Mum too, of course.)
    Best wishes as always, Pete.

    1. OlgaNunez says:

      I think you got it in one, Pete. Although the changes in point of view definitely might unsettle some people. I’m very curious about the next one too but I’m sure I’ll review it when it is published.
      And many thanks.

    Prayers and lots of good thoughts for your Mom and you! I’m confident she will recover! I also reviewed this book and am very much in line with both you and Terry!
    Is the second book in this series available yet?

    1. OlgaNunez says:

      Hi Noelle. Thanks very much. We’re still waiting for a date for the procedure.
      I don’t think it’s quite ready yet (or rather not officially). I know I had mentioned to Rosie that I was interested and she told me the author would offer the updated version of the first one before the second one became available to make sure reviewers who were interested had time to catch up on the story (a very nice touch on his behalf). And she sent it to me a few weeks ago. I’m sure Rosie will keep us up to date. But in the version I read there a few chapters of the next one at the end and I could not resist reading them.

    Thank you for a great review. Am hoping you and your Mum will be out of hospital soon. Blessing and wishes for you Mum to get well soon.

    1. OlgaNunez says:

      Thanks very much.

  11. Vashti Quiroz-Vega says:

    Hello Olga, thank you for the review. I’m sorry to hear about your mom. It’s very difficult and draining when a loved one is in the hospital. I hope your mom makes a quick recovery. I’m sending good and positive vibes from Florida for you and your mom. <3 xx

    1. OlgaNunez says:

      Thanks, Vashti. She’s having a catheterism today. I hope they can make her symptoms better and there are no problems… I’ll pass the good wishes on.

  12. Lorna's Voice says:

    You sure do read all kinds of genres, don’t you?! I’m amazed that your days only have 24 hours! 😉

    1. OlgaNunez says:

      Thanks, Lorna. Well, it depends on what I’m doing at the time but I’ve discovered that I’m more interested in reading than in many other things… And as I live alone I don’t tend to get interrupted as often as most people. (At the moment I’m in Barcelona due to my mother’s health and while I come and go and wait around reading is about the only thing I can do…)

      1. Lorna's Voice says:

        Ah, yes, living alone would give you more time to do as you wish.

        1. OlgaNunez says:

          It has its pluses and its minuses. I must say when one is used to it it’s quite difficult to adapt to something else but circumstances change.

Don't be shy! Tell me something!
