it was amazing

Wow - I really enjoyed this book. It was a super fun read. I was telling Anthony yesterday that is has it all - romance, history, politics, mystery, adventure and a touch of 'The Amazing Race'. After finishing last night I wikipedia-ed the book (can that be a verb??) - and discovered it was written at the turn of the century and was first a play. It was a percursor to 'disguised superhero' tales such as Zorro and Batman. It's been made into a movie several times and so I went to Netflix and put the 1982 adaption 1st in the queue. That will be our next 'date-night' since we're homebound for awhile with little Evan. :)
