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. It sounds fabulous! And I totally dig the cover. Great review as always, Olga!

    1. Thanks, Priscilla. It’s a fun and informative book. And I agree. The cover is fantastic. Have a lovely week!

  2. Thank you Olga.

    1. Thanks, Rosie. I’ve had a great time reading this book. Keep safe!

  3. This is bang up to date, with a topical theme that might well have us rooting for The Amazon over the humans. Thanks for a great review, Olga.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. You’re right, of course. This would make a fabulous film as well, or a series, although it would be a challenge to bring it to life. I knew plants were fascinating, but I’ve learned many things I didn’t have any idea about, and in a very entertaining way. Stay well and enjoy the rest of the week.

  4. This really does sound like a very interesting book with its rainforest setting, Olga. A fabulous review. PS, Day of the Triffids is a favourite book of mine.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. Oh, I think you’d love this one (and can imagine the cakes it would inspire as well)! I should read Day of the Triffids again. I remember reading a Spanish translation of it many years back, but I always find new things when I read books I had read in translation in their original version. Stay well! ♥

  5. Olga, you’ve made this book sound unique, wonderful, and exciting. I particularly enjoyed your remarks about choosing a genre for it. The video is interesting too. Best wishes to Jayme. Hugs on the wing!

    1. Thanks, Teagan. It’s a pretty unique book. Enjoy the rest of the week!

    Another fabulous review for what promises to be an exciting read. Yes, I will add this one, and thanks for the video Olga <3

    1. Thanks, Debby. It is a fascinating novel and a great setting, very vivid. You feel as if you were there. Big hugs. ♥

  7. This does sounds very interesting, Olga – and what a great review, once again. Toni x

    1. Thanks, Toni. It’s a fascinating book. Enjoy the rest of the week!
