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. Chouette sounds so good, Olga! I just added it to my to-read list. Thanks for sharing your review.:-)

    1. Thanks, Priscilla. I know you read in all kinds of genres and don’t shy away from the unusual, so I hope you do find it interesting as well. Have a great week!

    A most beautiful review for what seems a truly unusual book Olga. I’m captivated so I’m adding it, lol. Thank you. <3

    1. It is so unusual, Debby! I am sure it will give you plenty to think about, and I know you enjoy unusual books as well. Take care and enjoy the week!

        That’s why I look forward to your reviews Olga. You find some most interesting books! Happy week to you too Olga. Hugs xx

  3. What an interesting book, thanks for the review Olga.

    1. Thanks, Rosie. It is fascinating, and I must confess I only picked up on it because somebody share a comment and I couldn’t resist the cover.

  4. As you often do, you take a strange book that I would otherwise overlook, and make me want to read it. I’m sure it would make a fascinating fillm too. Perhaps even a serious animation? (Talking of which, I now want to see that Ouzon film, which I missed.)
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. Knowing your life experience, I suspect it would give you much to think about. I think animation might work quite well, or you would need somebody pretty special to bring it to real life, but I can think of a few people (and I’m sure you could too). Ricky was a curious film. I quite liked it, though, and it had Sergi López in it, and I do like him a lot. He knows how to choose his movies. Never anything boring.Stay safe and enjoy the rest of the week.

  5. Hi Olga, this sounds like a very strange story. I don’t think it would be for me, but I enjoyed your review.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. Yes, it is quite strange. It is compelling and beautifully written as well, but not for a lot of people, especially mothers. Stay safe and enjoy the rest of the week.

  6. “Difficult to categorize” doesn’t appeal to marketers, but I like it that way. I had to chuckle at your remark about the covers, Olga — knowing how you love owls. Thanks for bringing us this unusual treat of a book and for your mindful review. Hugs on owl wings!

    1. Thanks, Teagan. You know me and everything owl, and I share that love with the author of the novel. You’re right about difficult to categorize, but some of the best things (and people!) fit into that description. Life would be so boring otherwise! Stay safe, and make sure you remember to have some rest as well. ♥
