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 have an English friend who is married to a Turkish lady, so I have been aware of cultural differences for a long time now. I have also read a lot about the Ottoman Empire, and the Turkish involvement in WW1. But I know little of modern Turkey, despite having visited the country three times. This sounds like an interesting and important read. Turkey has a pivotal position in the region, and what happens there will affect Europe and the Middle East in so many ways.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I know far less than you do and thought it was a gripping book. I imagine your friend must know the author. A very solid publisher with a great catalogue. I hope you have a great weekend.

      1. My friend and his wife currently live and work in Oman. They have a property in Istanbul, and go there for holidays, with an intention to retire there later. Their son lives in England, in the west country, but I haven’t seen any of them since I visited them in Singapore, when they worked there.

        1. They must be quite busy and will have lived interesting times. I hope you catch up with them soon. 🙂

  2. Thanks for bringing this book to our attention, Olga. The U.S. is heading toward martial law and autocracy if we don’t get our heads out of the sand. Excellent review ♥

    1. Thanks, Tina. The situation is getting worrying in general. It is an excellent book and I hope people will read it and it will give them something to think about. Happy Sunday.

  3. Hi Olga! Good review. This goes to show that when a book is well done the genre becomes less important.

    1. You’re absolutely right. Some people can make all subjects sound fascinating, although I must admit I always find people’s own experiences of historical events fascinating. Thanks, Vashti!
