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. Thanks, Rosie!

  2. This sounds like one for me, Olga. Just added to my Wish List on Amazon.
    (I miss Mary too, all the time.)
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. Yes, I saw the description of this book, and it made me think of Mary’s blog and her books and friends as well. I thought this one might join your list, Pete. I hope everything is well with you all. Stay safe.

    Poignant quotes and storyline. Engrossing review Olga. And I’m with you, seems all the dystopian books written as fiction are becoming less and less fiction as this world goes on. Congrats to Andrew. I hope you are welll <3

    1. Thanks, Debby. Yes, it is worrying, isn’t it?
      I am well. Planning on a short break in April, so might not be around much from the 7th until the 20th of April or so. It should make for a nice change.
      Keep well.

        Good for you Olga. We all need a time out. We’ll be passing ships as I return in April <3

        1. Oh, excellent! I’m sure we’ll catch up, and I look forward to hearing a bit more about your break. Stay well. ♥

  4. Hi Olga, this sounds like a most interesting book about war. A bit different from the usual.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. You’re right. The author’s personal experience is evident, but there is also much reflection about the nature of war and how business interests play a big part in what goes on, not only in Afghanistan but in many other places. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  5. This was a great review, Olga – it sounds like a fascinating read. Toni x

    1. Thanks, Toni. It wasn’t what I expected, but it worked at so many levels… Enjoy the rest of the week!
