Finishing a book has never been such a tedious task.
It took me at least 4 months when i can literally finish reading a book of similar wordcount in 2 days.
It wasn’t a very engaging book to be honest.
I didn’t know about Mata Hari before i read this book so i can’t comment on historical relevance of the content.
Reading it felt like witnessing a tornado sweeping away an innocent life.
But isn’t it what wars do??
Don’t people look for the easiest target to offload thier own burden of humiliation and sins even in normal lives to this day?
I shuddered to the thought of what this woman had to go through; getting away from torment, then trying to conceal her it and then being judged and punished for the path she chose.
Got this book just because of Paulo Coelho i like the way he weaves words.
It didn’t live upto expectations set by works like ‘The Alchemist’ ‘The Zahir’ and ‘The Fifth Mountain’.
But i will sleep a bit better tonight as i finished reading one of many books that i abandoned after a few pages.
