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.

    Wow, now this book does sound like a ‘horse of a different color’ and I love different, so I am quite interested in reading this Olga. And wow, what author doesn’t want to claim ownership of their book and make themselves known publicly to build readership? Sounds curious to me. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Debby. I don’t know if more things will be revealed between now and the actual publication of the book, but I am curious indeed. I wonder if they might have some cards up their sleeves, but I think you’d enjoy this one. 😉

        Well, I just added it to my Amazon wish list (with many others to get to) from your great recommendations! 🙂

        1. Thanks, Debby. I’ve discovered that Amazon Prime has different perks in different places, and it seems it comes with even more books for free in Spain at the moment, so, although I’m getting many of them for my mother, my own list is getting even more out of hand. I hope somebody writes a book on how to live long enough to read all the books on one’s list. I definitely need it!

            Lol, a writer’s dream!!! 🙂

          2. I’ll inform everybody immediately if I come across it! That would definitely be a runaway bestseller!

  2. Thank you Olga.

    1. Thanks, Rosie. A very intriguing discovery. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. And good luck to the author. ♥

  3. Sounds like one for me, at every level. The main attraction (though I thought of all your references too) is the fact that it all happens in one day. That’s hard to do well, and appeals to me greatly This will go on my Amazon wish list, Olga.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. Oh, I think you will enjoy it, for sure, and that is why I mentioned it yesterday. I know you will pick up many references. This one would be challenging to adapt to the screen, I think, but it has very substantial parts for talented actors, and some wonderful secondary characters, apart from Billy who is a great protagonist. I am sure you will think of a cast as you read it. I hope you have a great day!

  4. Deep thanks, Olga, for featuring my book so thoroughly and in such a positive light.


    1. Thanks very much. It’s a very intriguing concept and I loved the fact that it’s such an ode to fiction (well, I am a writer and a reader!). I hope it does very well for you and we can get to read many more of your books in the future!

  5. Good morning, Olga. You’ve captivated me with this review. Very intriguing. Hmmm… Especially about the transportation. Since it’s released on my birthday, maybe I should gift myself. 😉 Hugs!

      1. Thanks for the reminder. Yes, Teagan lives in the US, so I hope she’ll take part. 🙂

      2. Hi Guillermo. Thanks for the reminder. 🙂 Wishing you the best.

        1. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Teagan. It is intriguing. IT would make a great birthday present, although don’t miss the author’s reply to your comment (as you are, indeed, a US resident).

      1. Hi Olga. A few weeks ago I even asked for a couple days leave, which combined with the holiday on the 4th will make a nice break. It hasn’t been approved yet… (eye roll). But I doubt that will be a problem.

        1. Fingers crossed! Big hugs!

  6. This book sound very interesting, Olga. A lovely review.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. It is a pretty original read. 🙂

  7. Thanks for the great review, Olga! By the description, I did get a familiar sense of Fahrenheit 451 and 1984. However, reading your review, I am quite intrigued by Literature’s own version of a time when fiction is banned and about the main character’s run with luck (or without it?).

    1. Thanks, Vashti. The thing is that it is a very short book and only follows the main character through one day, but it still manages to pack a lot of information in and gives a good sense of what life might be like, without going into a lot of detail. It will work particularly well for readers who love to fill in the gaps. I’m sure you’d enjoy it.

      1. Thank you, Olga. 🙂 xx

  8. Delighted to share the news that Literature has won GOLD at the 2019 INDEPENDENT PUBLISHER (IPPY) AWARDS.
