Que una autora consagrada se atreva con un personaje tan conocido me parece muy valiente. Un eroe semplice, il cui mezzo era un cavallo nero dal nome Tornado, che si occupava di campagnoli e usava come uniche armi una spada e una frusta.
Inutile dire che il risultato ha di gran lunga superato le aspettative. Tutti questi fattori insieme contribuiranno a creare il personaggio di Zorro. E, se volete sapere cosa faceva il giovane de la Vega prima di giungere in California e infliggere zeta alle persone e ai luoghi che hanno meritato vendetta, leggete dunque questo libro.

Granted, I think Isabel Allende is one of the best authors I have ever read but despite my bias this was still a really good book! I love the story of Zorro to begin with but Isabel Allende writes it from the point when Zorro’s parents meet and then how he is born and becomes Zorro.
It is great historical fiction and I have always liked how Allende uses magic realism in her writing. The book gives insight into the California Mission system, as well as interesting information about Spain and New Orleans. I would recommend this book If I could give this book 10 stars I would.
I read it in Spanish on the recommendation of several of the people in my Spanish conversation group. Over the following year I read the entire book through at least 3 times, and some sections 5 or 6 times, and I don’t reread books. I introduced it to a group of students and kids who hadn’t wanted to read anything before were suddenly competing to read aloud.
El zorro. Comienza la leyenda: Agencia Literaria Carmen Balcells
This book has so much action, so much history. It’s kind of like The Count of Monte Cristo or one of the classics of that era. The day we finished reading it in class, the kids were silent for a minute or two and then got up and high fived each other and started all talking at once about whether or not they liked the way it ended.
For many of them, it was the first time they had ever read a complete novel, much less a novel in a foreign language. How much more wonderful can a book get? This was the Branigan BookClub selection for November She takes the legend of the masked man and fleshes it out into a fullblown historical novel with a depth and sweeping panorama fully the equal of the aolende epics of world literature.
This is the clmienza of an unquestioned master of story telling at the top of her form. There is not one false note, not one flawed plot line in the entire work This was the Branigan BookClub selection for November There is not one false note, not one flawed plot line in the entire work.
You learn how Zorro came to zorri Zorro and the tremendous personal cost involved. Get your hands on this book and read it if you thirst after a truly great story that will leave your head spinning! Once again, the felicitous choice of Margaret Sayers Peden as Allende’s translator has given us a true literary gem.
El Zorro: Comienza la leyenda
Just as Allende’s work is a Master’s Class on writing, so Peden’s is on translating. And it just doesn’t get much better than the two of them together!

Throughout this charming portrait of Zorro, there are vibrant characterizations of real historic figures.
This is an enchanting modern depiction of a famed legend. I was not disappointed with Zorro. Allende is a dynamic diva of story telling. Allende’s Zorro begins in California with how his Spanish father met his Indian mother.
His evolution into Zorro, and the beginning of his legendary fight comiensa injustices takes him to Spain, to Jean Lafitte’s legendary Barataria and back to California.

I usually prefer to read books with female protagonists but since Allende wrote Zorro, I th I fell in love with Isabella Allende’s writing when I read Daughter of Fortune. I usually prefer to read books with female protagonists but since Allende wrote Zorro, I thought I’d give it a try. I was never bored for a moment. La isla bajo el mar. No he encontrado en absoluto una novela mejorable o TAN juvenil si tiene hasta violaciones Not less than 5 stars and that is as Allende is incapable of telling a bad story… her heroically sustained narrative, her lovingly prepared plots and supreme inventions explode in exaltation.
As much as I’m delighted that I ve been enjoying this novel for one week as much as I’m upset that I finished it. Allende proved that she is one the best novelists ever. I loved it so much. Allende’s version of the Zorro story is an old-fashioned swashbuckling adventure on one hand, a post-colonial story of colonial times on the other. So he’s quite literally the best of all worlds. A Allende’s version of the Zorro story is an old-fashioned swashbuckling adventure on one hand, a post-colonial story of colonial times on the other.
And if the worst parts of those worlds seem presented rather cheerfully, so what? This is an unabashedly optimistic and romantic book. Just what I was expecting from a Zorro book, as I have been quite a fan of the movies. There was grit and loss and love and laughter and friendship. It felt more like a biography disguised as a novel in the most positive way because it felt so REAL. You watch those unrealistic stunts on screen and brush it off as something just for the screen.
The feminism present in it w Just what I was expecting from a Zorro book, as I have been quite a fan of the movies. The feminism present in it was also commendable although she didn’t disguise the ugly reality of some chauvinistic features of some cultures present. Oh, what a great story and a wonderful read! If you love Zorro, no matter which one, from TV or the movies, dear reader, you-must-read-this-book. Thank you, dear author, thank you so much for writing this story.
The only thing I am upset about is how long it took me to get around to reading it. A wonderful fun read, almost like reading Dumas at his best. Hermine, and they are very similar in many ways. Which is not to imply that one was inspired by the other, at all; but to say that Allende really knows how to craft a classic adventure story with compelling characters and a sense of fun. I was a little nervous reading an Allende, expecting her to be very mystic and hard to follow, in the styl A wonderful fun read, almost like reading Dumas at his best.
I was a little nervous reading an Allende, expecting her to be very mystic and hard to follow, in the style of “contemporary” Latin authors. She’s not, at all. There is just enough mysticism to make this story great. It’s sort of the “prequel” to the Zorro tv series and the excellent zorro movies. And I love that this famous “literary” author was inspired by, essentially, a comic book character. This book adds so much dignity and depth to Zorro. Why bother, you might ask?
In times like these, isn’t it nice to believe that somewhere out there is a caped crusader who devotes his life to justice and to defending the weak and the poor?
Sobra decir que a,lende Johnston McCulley hubiera podido leerlo seguro que se hubiera sentido muy satisfecho de lo hecho con su personaje. Genial, genial, genial, genial. This was such a heart-warming tale! This is the story of Zorro. He was taught the native tongue of his mother and his father, raised with a lifelong best friend who was a full blood Indian. He was a passionate child and became a passionate man.
His life is completely entertaining, he has great friends, hilarious adventures and the narrator is lovely. Left me with a smile on my face. It was everything an adventure novel should be; full of good clean adventure, lsyenda, history, and justice triumphing over evil in swashbuckling style. You can’t conquer evil in this world but once in awhile you can give it a good swift kick, deal it a defeat, which is what our Zorro does.
El Zorro, allsnde are my hero.
