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. I love your enthusiasm, Olga. I can tell you’re fond of Conley’s writing! Thanks for sharing your review.

    1. Thanks, Priscilla. Yes, he writes beautifully and always chooses fascinating topics to turn his talent to. I hope you have a great week.

  2. Thank you Olga.

    1. Thanks, Rosie. It’s always a pleasure to catch up with a favourite author.

  3. The idea appeals to me a lot, Olga. I am going to put it on my Wish List.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I think you’ll enjoy this one if you get to it. Have a great week!

  4. This sounds very good, Olga. I am not big into sci fi but this is more dystopian fiction in my mind.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. You make a very good point. In this book, there isn’t a lot of discussion about what the world is like when the story takes place (in fact, you can easily imagine reading about a similar project in the very near future). It focuses more on the experiences of the main character, and yes, I think you would enjoy it, Robbie. Have a great rest of the week.

  5. What a beautiful and compelling review Olga. It’s important to me to know there is a happy ending. A science fiction aspect usually adds appeal for me. Maybe this one needs a new category like “SySyFy” instead of SyFy LOL. Hugs on the wing.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. I think you’re right on the categories front. We’ll have to tell Amazon and the rest of the retailers! I’m reading Journey 13 at the moment. I’m so happy to see so many old faces turning up again, despite the circumstances. Keep safe and well. ♥

    Hi Olga. You had me at your first sentence. I believe you were referring to me <3 And wow, of course I musr read this book and check out the works by Conley. Yes, no doubt it will be a painful read but as you know, I am always fascinated by the human condition and the unusual – death not excluded. Thank you my friend. <3

    1. Thanks, Debby. Yes, indeed I was thinking of you and of the books you’d been reading and reviewing recently. I hope you get to read it, and it does not disappoint. Stay safe and well, Debby.

        Thanks so much Olga. It’s in my big fat TBR, but I intend to read it. Hugs and happy new week to you Olga xx

        1. Let’s not talk about the size of our TBRs! Take care! ♥

  7. A fantastic review, Olga. Toni x

    1. Thanks, Toni. The subject matter might not appeal to everybody, but it is a pretty special book, as are all of the author’s stories. Stay well and good luck with your projects.
