Espia | Paulo Coelho
Su unico crimen fue ser una mujer independiente En su nueva novela, Paulo Coelho da vida a una de las mujeres mas enigmaticas de la historia: Mata Hari, quien fuera acusada de espionaje durante la Primera Guerra Mundial. Aunque hubo poca evidencia para incriminarla, ella no pudo escapar de la persecucion y el enjuiciamiento por la inteligencia militar francesa. Esta cautivadora e intima narracion nos presenta a una mujer que se atrevio, en su tiempo, a hacer lo impensable: desnudarse en publico, ser independiente, seductora, exitosa, original e inteligente. A diferencia de otras mujeres de la epoca, ella tenia un sueno firme: conquistar los escenarios europeos con su baile y alcanzar su propia libertad."

#BookMail - @Butterfinger I got your #LMPBC book today!

I also got my #BOTM book today!

Mini rant: I hate where delivery people decide where to place packages. Today they decided in the snow in front of the garage instead of at the front door. Like you have 1 job!! Gahh so frustrating! Luckily no books were water damaged! And it‘s not like my front door isn‘t accessible!

Beautiful writing - very depressing subject matter. "We go from euphoria to despair several times a day." This quote struck a chord because I felt that as I was reading. At one point I was not going to use it for my markup postal group, but I decided I wanted to hear what their thoughts were. @megnews @Laughterhp @Chrissyreadit I wrote in blue.

The story of Mata Hari told through the switching perspective in the form of letters by and her lawyer. It was an interesting take and introduction to her story, but lacked some of the beauty and prose one expects from Coelho. Still I‘m glad to have read it.

I really liked this interpretive memoir of Mata Hari. It reminded me a lot of Queen of the Night, in that Mata Hari pretty much lived the life Chee imagined for his heroine. And like Chee‘s main character, all Mata Hari was trying to do was live life on her terms. But she did so at the wrong place and time.
Coelho does lean on some historical sources for his account. But he‘s best when he‘s putting the reader in the MC‘s shoes, so let him.

I remember writing a report about Mata Hari when I was in elementary school. I was fascinated with her, and my teacher was a bit scandalized. At the time, I didn‘t understand why.

I enjoyed reading Coelho‘s take on her life, despite the fact that he played fast and loose with historical record (especially in regard to her motivations for becoming a courtesan.

Dovrebbe essere un libro che ci insegna qualcosa in più sulla vita di Mata Hari ma non è così. Non impariamo nulla di nuovo. L‘autore salta di palo in frasca togliendo continuità agli eventi che si sono verificati e, per di più, inventa dialoghi senza senso. Un libro frettoloso, si percepisce la volontà dell‘autore di finirlo così da poterlo pubblicare il prima possibile.

"The spy" - a story of a women caught between the war and the close mind of society, ahead of her time, she challenge everyone to be who she wanted to be. A tail of strength, courage, rebelion and maybe a little bit of arrogance.

Unpopular opinion, I do not like Paulo Coelho's work. I bailed on The Alchemist and I'm bailing on this too. I love stories about strong women and I really thought this would fulfill that. Well, as I have seen many times with male authors, they are not good at writing female characters. He took a badass femme fatale from history and made her story trite, shallow, and boring! It contained a few good 1-liners, but halfway through... BAIL.

To be honest, my knowledge of Mata Hari was limited to "seductive WWI spy." I had no idea that there was so much more to her story than what her detractors had told. This was a fascinating look into her story.

But unfortunately, this felt very superficial and lacked Coehlo's usual depth for me. This story definitely got me interested in learning more about her history. Beyond that though, this felt flat and forgettable.

?????

PatriciaU This was in my review of this last year: “I found Coelho's version of Mata Hari to be vain, somewhat dim and naive, and quite unlikable.” I agree with your assessment here....Disappointing. 2y

Never fall in love. Love is a poison. Once you fall in love, you lose control over your life -- your heart and mind belong to someone else. Your existence is threatened. You start to do everything to hold on to your loved one and lose all sense of danger. Love, that inexplicable and dangerous thing, sweeps everything you are from the face of the earth and, in its place, leaves only what your beloved wants you to be.

The story have very strong and intriguing beginning, but in the middle of the second part it becomes in some parts uninteresting, even boring... which is in contrary to the very interesting and lively life of Mata Hari. IMO she was vain, naive and tragic figure, discarded and punished because of the ‘trading with gossips‘. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thanks for sharing, @julesG! I read this in a couple of sittings today.
This is an informative book and I enjoyed learning about this woman's story. However, I didn't fully enjoy this novel from a literary point of view: poorly executed, in my opinion. Some parts were very engaging while other weren't so much!

I read about halfway through this and was prepared to say, “the cover is pretty.....” as I wasn‘t real thrilled with the book.

3⭐️ The Spy is a unique story of a woman trying to find happiness, by totally defying convention. Her ultimate downfall was her vanity and her ego.
Paul Coelho writing is fabulous. It is lyrical, like many of the other novels he has written. Mata Hari‘s character, her frame of mind was so well developed and conveyed. The Spy was easy read, Read more. https://lharvey250.tumblr.com/post/156556957049/the-spy-paul-coelho-my-rating

It has been very hard to make markings or write notes into the book. At first I wanted to mark a lot, then there was nothing remarkable and then I finished with some thoughts.
