Gaston Leroux's novel The Phantom of the Opera, first published in 1910, remained a perennial favorite throughout the twentieth century and into the millenium. It was adapted to several popular motion pictures and into one of the most successful stage musicals of all time. Its main character, Erik, is a romantic figure and sensitive soul whose appeal reaches across different cultures and times. He is an accomplished composer and musician whose great unfinished work, Don Juan Triumphant, is described as breathtakingly beautiful by the one person he allows to hear it. Erik is an object of pity, whose face has been disfigured from birth, causing him to hide behind a silk mask; and he is hopelessly in love with a young woman. He can never seriously hope she will love him back.

Andrew Lloyd Webber & the 2004 movie version starring Gerard Butler, Emmy Rossum, & Patrick Wilson. I LOVE the 2004 movie, so the book was set with a very high expectation. One of the things that was left out of the movie was the role of the Persian. He plays a fairly significant role in the book, & by reading the book, some of the little details in the movie now make total sense. I do, however, like how the movie ended, leaving you to draw your own conclusions to some of the questions. The book adds a bit more detail to story past the point of the Christine's release from the Phantom's lair including the fate of the Phantom. The story still leaves a bit of question as to what happened to Raul, Christine, & their relationship. I believe it leads you more toward a certain conclusion, but you still have just a twinge of doubt. I enjoy these endings because it leaves you to linger over the story past the point of finishing the book.

Age recommendation: 14 & over

On a scale of 1-10 stars, I give it 7.
