The Spy by Paulo Coelho

Into the Wild

Read The Spy Online Free - In his new novel, Paulo Coelho, best-selling author of The Alchemist and Adultery, brings to life one of history's most enigmatic women: Mata Hari.


When Mata Hari arrived in Paris she was penniless. Within months she was the most celebrated woman in the city.

As a dancer, she shocked and delighted audiences; as a courtesan, she 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. In 1917, she was arrested in her hotel room on the Champs Elysees, and accused of espionage.

Told in Mata Hari’s voice through her final letter, The Spy is the unforgettable story of a woman who dared to defy convention and who paid the ultimate price.

Mata Hari really deserves better than she has been getting in the literary department. First there was Mata Hari’s Last Dance by Michelle Moran that made her inexplicably obtuse and naive considering her accomplishments. Now Paulo Coelho gives us The Spy which seems to be nothing more than a cont...

“I am a woman who was born at the wrong time and nothing can be done to fix this. I don’t know if the future will remember me, but if it does, may it never see me as a victim, but as someone who moved forward with courage, fearlessly paying the price she had to pay.” I picked this one up randomly...

انا غالباً لا اضع توقعات لروايات كويلو فبعد تسع قراءات له اصبحت ادرك تماماً اين ستسير رواياته وكيف ستنتهي فهي غالباً تُختم بسعادةٍ وسلام بعد أن يدس كويلو خلالها كل ما يملك من نصائح ومواعظ ومحاولات مملة لرفع الروح المعنوية للقارئ . مشكلتي مع كويلو ليست في روحانياته او تفاؤله المبالغ به ، مشكلتي مع...

The Spy is the story of Mata Hari, told first in her voice and then from the point of view of one of her male admirers. Paulo Coelho isn't at his best in this novel. He prefers and excels at metaphorical stories. For example, in this tale, Coelho has Mata Hari comparing herself to the nightingale t...

Uno de mis libros favoritos de todos los tiempos es de Paulo Coelho, El Zahir. Por lo regular disfruto mucho de sus libros aunque no son de mis géneros favoritos y este libro sonaba muy interesante. Estaba impaciente por leerlo pude quedar más desilusionada: el libro es aburrido a más...

Mata Hari...was she a spy or wasn't she? Did she serve as a double agent for Germany and France throughout World War I or did a malicious allegation with zero evidence destroy her life? In this re-imagining based on nonfiction accounts, author Paulo Coelho says no. Her only crime was her choice t...

" في الحرب، تكون كرامة الإنسان هي أولى الضحايا " لا أود الخوض في تفاصيل ونقد الرواية، سأركز في مراجعتي على هده الجزئية فقط المتعلقة بمقاربة الحرب من منظور إنساني وأرى أنها تحمل ثقل الرواية على كاهلها ، ولأجلها كتبت وكويلو ماهر دائماً في دس تلك الرسائل في قصص قد تبدو بعيدة بعض الشئ عن هدف الرواية ا...

This book reminds me that I shouldn't read historical fiction novels that are based on specific people, rather than a general time period. I'm too critical, and no doubt I expect too much from authors who are brave enough to take on the daunting task of getting inside another person's mind. I'm of...

لا بأس .. ولكن من يقرأ الخيميائي أولا لا يستمتع بالجاسوسة مع أنهما لباولو كويللو إلا أن الفرق واضح بين المزاجين
