Well, I realized that today, 23rd April, is a World Book Day. I finished reading ‘The Spy’ by Paulo Coelho this morning.
I love to read. But with so many tasks at hand, taking time out to read is so hard. Which is why I started (again) reading routine from January 2018. I try to make some time in the morning to read but haven’t been 100% successful at maintaining the routine.
The Spy is the fourth book I have read this year after ‘The Blue Notebook’, ‘The Bookseller of Kabul’ and ‘The Vegetarian’.
I am not really into Paulo Coelho’s books. Among his so many books, I have only read ‘The Alchemist’. ‘The Spy’ is the second book of Paulo Coelho that I read.
As much as I love reading, I don’t like writing long reviews. I give star ratings on Goodreads and leave 2 liners on the rare occasion.
Since this book was based on the real events and I was curious to read about the life of Mata Hari, I found this pretty interesting. Reading about the life of famous people is always fascinating.
Title: The Spy
Author: Paulo Coelho
Language: English (Original – Portuguese)
This is the story of an exotic dancer who was accused of being a spy, a double agent during World War I and was executed despite being innocent.
Below is my review of ‘The Spy’ on Goodreads.
In a world full of men who think they are the only superior beings and think women as a mere commodity, a woman lived her life in her way, fought her uphill battle of life, and treated men as men treated women. The so-called powerful men could not accept it and the innocent woman had to die.
Pin it for later!
