A nice, easy story to listen to....

This reminds me of the movies of the 50s and 60s that I used to go to see when I was a kid. Only you listen to it instead. The action of the main characters is easy to follow the the Colonial Radio Players create their characters so you can tell who is who, making the plot easier to follow. I personally enjoyed the story and have always enjoyed the hero, Zorro and his fight with the evil police. They always portrayed these bad guys as fat, oily and roly poly turds in the movies and Zorro easily defeated them 6 at a time. It was a fun listen. I would give it 4 1/4 stars just for the sheer performance, but like all the Zorro stories, just a little hackneyed, so the story gets 3 1/2 stars.

More Radio Fun!

Much like with Zorro Rides Again (which I reviewed already, and the two stories take place back-to-back), this is 1940s style melodrama with all the pulp heroics and cliched villainy you could want from a Zorro story. These have all the charm of the old radio episodes or film serials, warts included... which is a selling point for me. I like my Zorro in the classic style.

Just Good Fun

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you're looking for intrigue ... better pass. If you're looking for good, old fashioned radio style fun ... you'll enjoy this.

very enjoyable!

This audio dramatization of the second Zorro book is very well written and acted, and I enjoyed it very much.

This was a great relief to me, because I had just listened to another Zorro audio drama I purchased from Audible that was comparatively awful in both writing and in (over)acting.

If you enjoy this as much as I did, I highly recommend you get the next title in the series, Zorro Rides Again, dramatized and produced by this same company. It's even better!

The plot was kind of meh

I enjoyed the voice-acting, though. Lots of vim and vigour. (I don't really enjoy long conversations about whether to rape a woman right now or force her into marriage and rape her later. However classic that plot.)
