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 was pleased to read that you enjoyed this book as much as his previous ones, Olga. I am sure the theme has a huge potential audience, and I wish Hans success with his new novel.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. Yes, I am sure his followers will be happy with his new book as well. Stay well and all the best to Ollie and the family.

  2. Hi Olga. Once again, I very much enjoyed reading your insights. I appreciate the level of effort and detail you put into your reviews. This book sounds truly lovely. I like the concepts. Although, I can’t handle anything that makes me cry, and this surely would. Thank you for that warning.
    I hope you’re having a wonderful week and that the weather has improved. Hugs on the wing.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. Yes, it definitely will make readers cry. No doubt about it.
      Still hot here, although in theory, it should be improving today. Not that evident yet.
      Stay well and big hugs.

  3. HI Olga, this really does sound like a moving and worthwhile book. Thanks for this review and bringing this book to my attention.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. The author has written some pretty amazing books, and I know he’s written some children’s books as well, although I haven’t read any of those. Enjoy the rest of the week.

    Thanks for the review Olga. You know I like moving books – especially, controversial ones. So I’m adding this one! Happy weekend! <3

    1. Thanks, Debby. Hirschi never hides from controversial subjects, and he writes beautifully. Have a great weekend as well and thanks for spreading the word. ♥

  5. This sounds like a very heart-wrenching story – another great review. Toni x

    1. Thanks, Toni. It is. The author always writes about subjects that make us think (and often cry as well). Enjoy the rest of the wek.

Don't be shy! Tell me something!
