Zorro's best-kept secret is the fact that there wasn't *one* Zorro story written by Johnston McCulley -- there were sixty! A wonderful new company is currently in production of republishing every one of these classic stories. I've read some of them; they're every bit as good as "Mark". Truly "must-reads". Miss them at your own expense.
Allende made me ask "When will it end"; McCulley makes me ask "Does it have to end?"
The story by McCulley, is a terrific read, from stem to stern, even when you know the ending.
The physical book itself is AWFUL.
There are numerous typos throughout the entire book.
The letter "o" gets replaced by the number "6" a half dozen times in the last few pages alone.
There's a half a page duplicated, making for some confusing reading two-thirds of the way through.
The word "the" is often replaced by the the word "Die", making me wonder if there was some German transcriptionist involved somewhere along the line.
Letters are capitalized in the midst of words for no meaning.
It actually made reading this simple tale a chore.
I loved this story, but I hated the actual book it was printed in.
Ordered by his father to marry, Diego tries to win the heart of a beautiful senorita, Lolita, but she is in love with the bandit highwayman: Zorro. Diego tries in his own dis-interested way to win her heart, although he abhors making any effort; save getting into his clothes in the morning. Deemed as the only twenty-four year old in the pueblo to yawn 200 times a day, Lolita will have none of him!
Meanwhile: Senor Zorro appears and disappears like the wind, serving justice to those who oppress the weak and rob from the innocent. When he is not fighting off soldiers or leading them on a wild goose chase, Zorro sneaks his way around to whisper love to the woman of his dreams: Lolita! Can these lovers ever know what the other truely desires?
Don Diego will have you cracking up as you read, and Senor Zorro will keep you on the edge of your seat. What more can someone ask from a tale of adventure and respect served with a swift blade?

A fantastic story of chivalry, justice, love and the daring-do of (arguably) the first super hero. I'm curious now about all the other books in the series as well as the early... Read morePublished 8 months ago by Paul Swagerty

This was a fun read. If you want something quick this is it. If you watched the Disney Zorro's then you know in the TV version the names
were changed to protect the innocent.
I loved reading the original of this story. It was rather well done. I had not read it before but have read and seen other stories about Zorro. He was a childhood hero of mine. Read morePublished on March 14, 2014 by JM
