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. Good review! This is on my TBR. The hubster and I are going to buddy read it together.:-)

    1. Thanks, Priscilla. I hope you enjoy it. I had plenty of fun with it! Stay well and give my best to your husband as well.

  2. This sounds like another smash-hit film soon to be arriving at a cinema near you.
    I like the sound of it more than ‘The Martian’, which I didn’t read, but watched as a film. I just hope all the scientific stuff isn’t too ‘dry’ for me.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. Definitely. It should make a fabulous movie if they do it well and cast the lead cleverly. Well, and if they get one of the elements of the book right… (I’m keeping quiet about that). I don’t think you’ll find it too dry, Pete. One doesn’t need to be a hotshot in science to read it, but feeling curious about it helps, and the main points of the story (because there are twists as well) don’t depend on terribly complex or difficult-to-grasp concepts. (I am sure real science buffs will have plenty to query and argue about, and no matter how much advice and expert help he’s had, the author isn’t a pro either). Enjoy the rest of the week.

    1. Thanks, Anne. It sure does! Have a great week and good luck with all your projects!

  3. This does sound rather intriguing, Olga. I can’t think of anything worse than memory loss. This is the second review I’ve read today on this same topic of memory loss. How strange.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. Well, in this case there is a reason for his memory loss, as he has been in a coma for a few years, but we learn a bit more about that much later in the book. I think your sons might enjoy it as well. I agree about losing one’s memory. It is fundamental to who we are. Stay safe and enjoy the rest of the week.

  4. Olga, thanks for this wonderfully mindful review. You’ve hit all the right notes. I like science fiction particularly the ones that hard-core SyFy fans would insist are “science fantasy.” True science fiction, like Asimov, weighs me down with the language.
    I like the idea of “scientific tidbits” in this story. I’m very intrigued by your review, and I think I’ll like this one. Hugs on the wing.

    1. I am sure you’d love Rocky, but if you want to get a better idea of the style of the writing, don’t forget to have a look at a sample. I know you’re very busy and don’t have much time to read, but I had a great time with this one.
