    1. One of the most interesting memoirs I have ever read, filled with heart-felt situations, from Second World War Germany till the new century in the States, through out the Cold War, assassinations, Maria war, and many other complicated stuff narrated from the perspective of a simple woman who dedicated her life to her kids, and also her lovers. I'm confused about what to write, I don't consider this a review, I would poorly write about it no matter how hard I'd try.


    2. The entire time I read this, I got the feeling this was an unreliable person. I finally looked her up and found out she is widely known as a fabricator and there are tons of holes in her stories. I am inclined to agree. That being said, if you consider her memoir a work of fiction, it's pretty entertaining.


    3. This book was so unbelievable that I had to remind myself that it was Memoir. Marita was born in Germany at as World War II broke out. She was raised in a Nazi concentration camp during her childhood. She travelled to Cuba in 1959 and fell in love with Fidel Castro . She moved to America and was recruited by the CIA to assassinate to kill Castro, but she refused. This was the last time she refused anything as she moved to Venezuela and had an affair and a child with the ex-dictator. She testifie [...]


    4. What prompted me to give this book 2 stars instead of 1 is beyond me. Going into this I expected a book that would show me the ins and outs of espionage and explain, even if briefly, the effect of the CIA on the Cuban Revolution. Maybe that's my misjudgment, but I believe that this memoir of a teenager that never really grew up, and experiences highschool-esque crushes on a political-tyrannical scale needs renaming.


    5. A little bit of history? True life scandal? Spy story featuring well-known people? CIA? A party girl with Mafia ties? This is too much! But count me in for the advanced copy of Marita: The Spy Who Loved Castro. I love a good espionage memoir.Ilona Marita Lorenz was born in Germany just days before WWII started. It could have been an indication of her rough life to come. She was incarcerated in a Nazi concentration camp as a child. Her father was often on the sea. When Marita got older, she was a [...]


    6. I won a free copy of this book from FirstReads.I had never heard of Marita Lorenz before and I asked someone alive during her escapades who didn't remember her either. This is quite a story. At times it seems believable even plausible, but at others it sounds outlandish and impossible. On the one hand there are photographs of her with Castro and she did testify in front of Congress which must be verifiable. On the other many documents and photos were 'stolen' and she mentions the involvement of [...]


    7. Very uneven in both writing and storytelling. Half of me wants to believe her and the rest of me says “yeah, right” Does she “fall in love” easily. Um, only about 8 men, some of whom she just lays eyes on and says “you must make love to me” There are tons of parts where it seems her children are with her but then she’s off in the field on a mission and one kid is at home? The other sent to a friend or who knows? I had no compassion or sympathy towards the end where the writing is a [...]


    8. Marita: The Spy Who Loved Castro by Marita Lorenz is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in late August.It was the juxtaposition, I think, between Marita's Cupid's-bow lips, apple cheeks, and pert chin against Castro's burly beard on the cover that drew me into reading this book. But, behind that pretty, expressive face is a determined, world-wandering fighter with a narrative voice that cuts like a blade and speaks very much like a spy with absolute memory, right down to the smallest detail, abo [...]


    9. At first I thought this would be a book about an adventurous woman and her daring escapades. Unfortunately, by the end of the book I had lost all respect for her. For someone who supposedly came in contact with all kinds of influential people and saw alot of action, she seems to have not learned a thing by the end of her life, and made it to old age by mere dumb luck. The final stage of her life is very sad, especially since she squandered any opportunity to earn repect from her family and frien [...]


    10. The history of socialism and its relation to the United States has been covered in many books, and this particular book took a different approach, a personal approach towards intelligence and international relations in a grappling and a turbulence. I can feel the pain and depression that was experienced by Marita, in a war which does not benefitted her and a cause that she does not even avidly supports.


    11. I thought this was fiction, I know it was billed as autobiographical, but frankly this was too fantastical to even seem like fiction. Maybe there was a kernel or two of truth, but it was just too much in my opinion. I felt like she wrote the whole thing to capitalize on the increased interest in Cuba and Castro now. Skip this one is my recommendation.


    12. Bought this on an impulse at an airport. In the beginning, it kept my attention. After a few chapters, it grew hard to believe all the stories being thrown out. Like other reviewers, I question her credibility. By the end of the book, I was basically reading just to finish it and had sort of lost interest.


    13. Interesting , but I didn't trust the author and found her unreliable . Towards the last quarter of the book I just wanted to be done with it.
