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. Hi Olga. It’s good to see a post from you.

    1. Oops… Insomnia & accidentally hit send. 🙂 I appreciate this well thought review. While it doesn’t bother me so much when a man writes from the point of view of a woman… I don’t appreciate a man assuming to know her deepest feelings. So thanks for the heads up. To each his or her own. I’m sure someone else would think it’s lovely.
      Wishing you a wonderful new week. Hugs.

      1. Thanks, Teagan. It had its moments but I didn’t feel I was the intended audience. Mind you, there’s a bit of most everything in the reviews this week, so I’m sure there will be some you’ll find more to your liking. Have a great week!

  2. This book sounds like a poetic novelle. And maybe the poetic way of writing was more in the foreground than details about the protagonists. It sounds as if the autor made that the essence and did not want to leave too much information which could distract the reader from the poetic flow… don’t know, just a thought that came to my mind.

    1. Thanks, Erika. Possibly. I’ve never been big on poetry, but it did put me in mind of a much younger audience. Also, personally, I think details can help us identify with a character, no matter how different they are from us. Most people have enough imagination and we can connect at a spiritual or emotional level, but, as I said, I just didn’t feel I was the intended audience. Have a lovely week.

      1. I would want that too to identify with the characters and understand them better where the come from! So, I understand that lack of information for the reader!

        1. I enjoy interesting plots but I like characters I can connect with (or sometimes I can dislike for good reason!)

          1. Haha, right!!!

  3. It is nice to recall those long-forgotten (for me at least) emotions of youth.
    I am sure Vatsal will find an audience for this style of writing. He has a career ahead of him, undoubtedly.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I agree about the forgotten part (nice, some of them more than others). I think you’re right. Have a great week.

  4. An interesting review, Olga. Not a book I would enjoy but interesting to read what you thought of it.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. Many more offerings this week, so hopefully you’ll find something more to your taste. And more to come 🙂

  5. Gorgeous your BLOG !!! I’m following !!! Follow mine too !!! Kisses !!!

    1. Thank you. I will!
