This is my FAVORITE book (beating The Hunger Games and Harry Potter)! I have no complaints about this book and I read it once a year. But it's never been available on eBook. So I was all excited to see that I could get it, only to realize that it's the Spanish version. I am hoping that the English version is made digital soon. In the meantime, if you're fluent in Spanish, I HIGHLY recommend this book!!!
The book was both enjoyable and entertaining. I liked the historical references and her descriptions of the differing cultures. I found many of Diego's narrow escapes a bit unbelievable as they continued towards the end of the book. Allende is a marvelous story teller and her style makes the book a pleasant, quick read.
Another library book. A fun story. I prefered the story by Jan Adkins. He seemed to have a better hold of his character's character. Also, this often seemed to slip into romance novel mode. However, it was a fun story, not painful to read. I probably won't read her other books though.
Isabel Allende narra la histoia del epico personaje del Zorro con su buenisimo estilo de siempre. En esta novela, la autora lleva al lector por lugares pintorescos, donde las mas asombrosasa aventuras mezclan la realidad con la ficcion. Es una novela fantastica, que tiene lugar en momentos historicos reales, haciendo su lectura muy interesante y divertida.
