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. Thank you Olga.

    1. Thank you, Rosie. A fascinating book. All the best.

  2. Thanks for your balanced review, Olga.
    Something different here, that may well appeal to those interested in surviving such natural disasters. Because of all my years in the Ambulance Service, I naturally tend to avoid books about actual major incidents. But I am sure there will be a huge market for this book in America.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. The ambulance service doesn’t feature as much as the other emergency services here, so I wonder if you might find the rest interesting (I think it’s on offer). But I know you’re busy enough at the moment. Have a good Tuesday and thanks for the comment.

        1. Great! I’ve read about the process of creation of the book and I’m aware that it should be translated into Spanish soon. I’m off to read your review. 🙂

  3. This book tells a fascinating story, and at the same time teaches lessons. Thank you for your review, Olga.

    1. Thanks, Inese. They are a great bunch of people and it makes for fascinating reading. Have a lovely week. ♥

      1. Have a great week you too! <3

    Sounds like an engrossing read Olga. I think someone else reviewed this book recently too in our blogging circles. Bookmarking! 🙂

    1. Thanks, Debby. I think if you had been there you’d have organized everybody in a minute, although no hot showers… Have a great rest of the week!

  5. A very interesting review, Olga. I am reading Shapes of Greg and am so glad he has come back. You know who I mean and he is my favourite character.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. Yes, I have a soft spot for him as well. Wait until you read the third book! 😉

  6. Wow, Olga. You make it sound like a marvelous book. It’s wonderful to see an inspiring true story become a book. Thanks for sharing it with us. Happy weekend hugs!

    1. Thanks, Teagan. It’s one of those cases where reality is stranger and more wonderful than fiction. Have a fabulous weekend! ♥
