    When Magical Realism Met SuperheroesTalk about an origin story.If it were not for being Zorro s story, this would be considered quite classy literature Maybe it still is I am not familiar with the critical reception It is finely detailed and expertly constructed, weaving history and legend seamlessly Allende almost pulls it off, but the awareness of the ending seeps into the rest

    I have been reading this book for almost a year and I m still only halfway through it so the likelihood that I m going to finish it are diminishing by the moment.I love the idea of this book The story of Zorro from his childhood Wow, what s not to like Except the story is told rather than shown There are paragraphs that take up full pages in a trade paperback no less and pages and

    It takes a certain kind of skill to write a boring book about a character like Zorro, and apparently, Isabel Allende possesses such It also takes a certain brashness to pronounce your protagonist as fun in the first paragraph and several times following that and then fail to produce any real evidence of it.I was excited about the prospect of this book a great pulp hero like Zorro in

    Great backstory for the adult Zorro, aka Don Diego de la Vega, whose adventures were spun out in serial form by McCulley from the 20 s to the 40 s Allende renders a compelling saga at the turn of the 18th century with vivid characters from many walks of life and cultures We get a believable vision of how an upbringing could instill the necessary balance of compassion, crafty duality,

    What is it about Zorro Back when the Disney channel was watchable by people over age 16, they showed the Guy Williams Zorro, the ones in black and white The show is far older than I am, but it s still cool There was also the Zorro series on the Family Channel what is now ABC Family That series was good, far better than the Black Stallion series on the same channel And who can forget Anto
