The mask, the music, the dark mysteries, and the tortured, deformed genius who just wants love. “The Phantom of the Opera” is so well known that its story needs no explanation.

Love knowing Andrew Lloyd Webber did Gaston Leroux justice in accuracy and great musical production

I am really liking this book. I have seen the musical many times over. I have ordered 2 copies of the 25th Anniversary DVD (one to keep safe and one to watch over and over again. Andrew Lloyd Webber did a great job of making this a musical. I thought for sure the book would be a lot different and it is not. He did a fabulous job of the music and being accurate and true to Gaston Leroux.

I loved this book. Read it some time ago and then purchased this one as a gift. There is so much in it. The musicals and movies have just the highlights of the story. You will be bonded forever to the “OG” after reading the book.

A good Romantic read

Arrived on time, as described and at an excellent price. This book was published in 1910, but is truly of the Romantic period, with the innocent young heroine, the stalwart hero, and the bad guy trying to come between them. But, it is gothic and mysterious, and, as it tells you something of the phantom’s past, even more scary than any film or stage version.

Cheap edition of classic novel

Dover Thrift Editions are the cheapest versions of classic novels you will find anywhere. The Phantom, a grotesque example of Romantic thriller literature, is not my favorite book. But if you want to read it, this is the cheapest paperback you will find anywhere. It contains a nice little introduction in addition to the text on cheap paper enclosed within a glossy cardboard cover. Many classic books are available for free in electronic versions through public domain, but I prefer reading hardcopies myself.

makes you want to go to the opera

Everyone needs to be loved. To what lengths will one go to obtain love? Not as romantic as the musical version, it still gives you pause to consider. The descriptions of the design and workings of the Opera House alone are worth the read.

It’s a good book, but don’t expect it to last. This gets an extra star for the Andre Castaigne illustration on the cover.

Of course, it’s Phantom of the Opera, and just about everyone knows that story. I wanted to see how different the book was from the stage production. It’s very different, but still very enjoyable.

Great!
