Spotlight

It is no secret in the world of Social Media that I am a huge fan of Alexander McNabb. It is solely down to him that I even have a twitter account let alone know how to use it.  His persistence in assuring me that it "works" made me even more determined to become part of the twitterati and see for myself whether Social Media was as effective as he claimed.  He, of course was correct.

I had known for some time that Alex had written a book which he had not been able to get published, so when I heard that he had self published I nipped straight out to Jashanmal and bought one.  I am not a great reader, more an internet junky so Olives ended up on my bedside cabinet until we had our weekend away at Le Meridien Al Aqah a few weeks back.  It was there, due to enforced relaxation that I started to read Olives ....

I have never read a book ever in my entire life where I actually knew the author in the real world, Alex is real, he is a human being, one who if I am fortunate enough, manage to bump into every so often and have a chat.  I also listen to the show he co-hosts on Dubai Eye every Wednesday from 12 - 2 pm.  Paul Stokes, the lead character in the book for me was actually Alex, his voice was Alex's, it was all quite bizarre as I am reading a book about a fictional character who to me was real, at one point I was actually starting to wonder whether Alex had actually lived as his fictional character, but I know that isn't true.

I am not going to tell you anything about the storyline of the book, suffice to say it kept my attention and interest which when it comes to reading doesn't happen with me that often.  I recommend you grab yourself a copy ASAP, it won't take you long to read, each page leaves you wanting more.  If you enjoy Olives you may well enjoy Alex's other ramblings which can be found on his blogsite here.

Enjoy!
