** spoiler alert ** Zorro is a story about Diego de la Vega, the son of a Spanish military man and a Shoshone warrior woman. He is mostly Spanish, but also part Native American. Diego learns of his Native American cultures from his grandmother, White Owl and spends all his childhood with his milk brother Bernardo. The inseparable milk brothers travel to Barcelona, where they meet new friends. Diego falls in love with Juliana but she does not show interest toward him. Diego, with his desire to help others in need uses his fencing skills in order to save lives. Diego hides himself at night from enemies wearing black clothing, mustache, and a mask and as a result, creates Zorro. Zorro becomes everyone's hero and others' enemy throughout the book.
Isabel Allende uses irony in her fast paced story about the young hero. Many unexpected events happen in the story, which makes the novel more interesting. I enjoyed reading Zorro because the characters were brought to life by Allende and were interesting to read about. There were also many symbols included in the novel that were significant to the story. In my opinion, the novel was well written and is great for anyone to read.
