My favorite scene in the book is the scene after Senor Zorro has humiliated Sergeant Gonzales and escaped, only to return as Don Diego. Don Diego proceeds to ask the Sergeant to tell him what happened, since Gonzales told Don Diego that he'd relate how he played with Senor Zorro before killing him. Gonzales can't reveal how Zorro humiliated him, of course, so he finally gets so frustrated he stomps out. And Don Diego knows full well what happened, since he was Senor Zorro! That is a masterpiece of irony, and quite funny.
In short, I loved it and I say Viva Senor Zorro!
I strongly advise you to buy this novel, just not this book.
This edition is a disaster. Entire paragraphs are repeated, "the" frequently replaced with "die", random letter "I"s are inserted here and there along with "f"s in strange positions. This has nothing to do with the novel or the author - this is a problem which lies squarely with the publisher. I have never seen such a sloppy presentation of any text - even free online e-books are much better set out. It is a disgrace that such a text should get out the door without being pulped.
It is rare to notice a single typesetting error, although usually when you do find them in a book, you have a quiet laugh to yourself and carry on. That's fine, mistakes happen, they are normal. This particular book has these errors on most pages, as though no one at the publisher actually read the final product.
A disgrace to such a wonderful novel.
You need to buy The Mark of Zorro, just any edition other than this one.
BUT The printing is awful and beyond belief (0 stars). I have never seen anything worse. Random letters, character names changed (e.g. Captain Ramon, Roman, Ram6n!), repeated paragraphs. Read this book but find a different publisher (Wildside Press) - in fact probably best avoid them altogether.
To spice things up there is the young Lolita Pulido who is torn three ways between, Don Diego Vega, Capitán Juan Ramon, and Zorro. It is said that once a Pulido gives her heart she can never love another.
Johnston McCulley wrote this story as a series originally titled as "The Curse of Capistrano" and as you read it you can see where he left a few cliffhangers between chapters. This story will be wrapped up enough that you will not have to buy the next book unless you want to. The wording and descriptions are excellent. And he seems to have lived at the time.
Not that I have anything against reading but it was a lot of fun listening to the MP3 unabridged version read by Armando Duran. He did a good job of separating the characters however I wonder where he got the accent.
My first introduction to Zorro was not the acclaimed (1920) Douglas Fairbanks version, but the Walt Disney version with Guy Williams as Zorro (1957-1962).
One of the most impressive versions is Zorro, the Gay Blade (2001).
