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. It’s great to read a fair review that points out potential weaknesses, but also recognizes the strengths!

    1. Thanks very much. I try and point everything because I know we’re all different, and sometimes the things I don’t like might be the ones that make it a perfect read for somebody else, and vice-versa.

  2. Categorically or genre-speaking, this sounds an unusual placement. Still, your review held promise. Hmm. On my TBR list of thousands. o_O <3 <3

    1. It is, indeed, Tess, although I understand the writer well. Some people feel very comfortable within a genre, whilst others might feel constrained. And then, some stories refuse to be shoehorned into a category. The author, very kindly, sends all people who review the first book in the series, the second, so I have that one waiting… on my very looooong list. (I don’t dare to count!) Thanks, Tess!

    You have such great reviews Olga. Of course we don’t get to read every book and not every genre is everyone’s favourite, but nonetheless, you make books beg to be read. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Debby. I agree we can’t like all books, and even the best books are not for everyone, but, like the main character in The Readers of the Broken Wheel Recommend (if you didn’t catch my review of that book, I love it and it’s here https://olganm.wordpress.com/2015/05/05/and-now-for-something-gentle-bookreview-the-readers-of-broken-wheel-recommend-and-flipped/), I also believe that all books deserve to be loved and read and have potential readers out there. I hope we can all help them find each other. Be well.

        Lol Olga. You are right, and now you’ve given me a link of another book I know I’m going to love. Thank you. <3

        1. Sorry! It is a delightful read for book lovers for sure. 🙂

  4. Good morning Olga…another excellent review. Sounds interesting, and given that it’s a short book, I might manage to squeeze in amongst all the others I am reading. Wishing you a lovely day – the sky is clear and blue here today – although quite cold. my kind of weather – janet:)x

    1. Thanks, Janet. I know you can find beauty in all weathers (and it exists, that’s true). Here it’s sunny but getting slightly chillier (not really cold). The author is very kind and sends the second book to readers who review the first, so if you get caught up in the story… Have a magical day!

  5. Many thanks Olga.

    1. Always a pleasure. I’m reading the next one…

  6. Even before you mentioned it near the end, I was already thinking ‘TV series’. Sounds like one that could run and run!
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I think it would work beautifully, Pete. Have a great day!

  7. Yikes! Well, I suppose that would warm the place up… but then there’d be a lot of mud… Thanks for the review, Olga. Mega hugs.

    1. The possible theories to explain what happen at first are very interesting. Nobody thinks about the cold when things get going! ♥
