The Spy by Paulo Coelho - A Review

Today we talk about a book I read last year and I really enjoyed. The book in question is The Spy by Pauo Coelho.

It is a historical fiction about the life of the famous Mata Hari. When she arrived in Paris she was penniless. Soon she was feted as the most elegant woman in the city. A dancer who shocked and delighted audiences; a confidant and courtesan who bewitched the era’s richest and most powerful men.
But as paranoia consumed a country at war, Mata Hari’s lifestyle brought her under suspicion. Until, in 1917 she was arrested in her hotel room on the Champs Elysees and accused of espionage.
Told through Mata's final letter, this book tells the unforgettable story of a woman who dared to break the conventions of her time, and paid the price.

This book is a portrait of Mata Hari and combines perfectly the real historical facts about her with the fictional ones the author introduced to the story. I liked it because I learned more things about this mysterious woman. After all, I always liked the way Paulo Coelho wrote.
It's a small little book with a lot of information inside, it's fast paced and you cannot put it down easily.

Rating: 4 Stras
