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.

  1. This is such a unique concept for a book. I’m glad the author took a chance and it worked out. Good review, Olga!

    1. Thanks, Priscilla. Yes, it is an original take on short biographies, and it works beautifully. Have a lovely week!

  2. Sounds an intriguing book
    Hugs Galore.

    1. Thanks, David. It’s nice to see you around. Keep safe!

    1. Thanks for keeping us all reading, Rosie. Stay well!

  3. This sounds intriguing, Olga.

    1. Thanks, Mary. It sure is, and there is such variety, I’m sure everyone is bound to find a favourite (and/or a hated character as well) between the stories. Thinking of you. Take care.

  4. Wow… It really does sound unique. I think I’d read it just for that alone. Olga, you’ve certainly made this seem interesting. I’m very curious about this one — even without the famous people angle. Thank you. This is quite a find. Hugs on the wing.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. The format suits all kinds of readers, as it doesn’t matter if you can only dedicate a few minutes at a time to it because the individual stories are quite short. I read quite some great reviews by members of Rosie’s team, and the author is also very engaging and keen to listen to all opinions.
      I know you like to try a variety of things, so I hope you get to read it at some point.
      Stay well and good luck with all your projects. ♥

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this little gem of a book. So pleased you enjoyed it too, Olga. You’re right, it’s excellent for people (such as myself) who like quizzes. I’m really looking forward to the next book.

    1. Thanks, Wendy. I hope everything is well with you. I think yours was one of the reviews that made me curious about it, and I also find quizzes difficult to resist. Let’s hope the author doesn’t make us wait too long for the next one! Stay safe!

        All OK, thanks, Olga. Take care!

  6. Hi Olga, this does sound very interesting and different. I like the sound of the style.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. I don’t think you’ll have any problems identifying the protagonists of the stories, but as you like to try different genres and formats, both as an author and as a reader, I think you’ll enjoy this one. All the best to your family, and stay safe, Robbie.

    1. Thanks, Debby. I think you’ll enjoy this one. It’s unusual, and it keeps you guessing. Big hugs.

      Thanks, Sally. It works as a good combination of quiz and anthology of stories. Have a lovely weekend.

  8. Olga, a superb review of an unusual book and how great that some of the earnings go for good causes!

    1. Thanks, Annika. Yes, it’s a fun and informative read, and some of the proceeds go to very good causes, so it’s a win-win situation. Stay well and enjoy the weekend.

  9. What an interesting review, Olga. The collection of unusual stories is appealing. I like authors who try something different. Great statement that there “isn’t a bad one in the lot.” And excellent recommendation at the end. 😀

    1. Thanks, Diana. They all grabbed my interest and kept me thinking, so yes, I can’t fault them. A very interesting idea and very well done. Stay well and good luck with all your projects. ♥
