Excellent product with very fast shipping. I am completely satisfied and would recommend the seller and the book to anyone.
I've read it 10 or more times Sep 7, 2008
This is one of my top ten most favorite books. I read it for the very first time in junior high school and let a friend borrow it but never got it back. A few years later I went to buy another copy and to my horror it was out of print! I searched online for about a week and managed to find a used copy for about double the face value. I gladly paid the money and have read it about every year or so since. I have closely gaurded that old used copy and I'm very glad to see it back in print. Now if they would just publish a kindle version I would be set for life.
If you read nothing else... Aug 30, 2008
Phantom This book is by far one of the best written and emotionally enveloping books I've ever read. You feel the seductiveness of Erik and find yourself falling in love with him also. I have the 1989 copy and read it after seeing the movie. It ties in with the movie, the stage production, and the 1911 classic by Gaston Leroux especially. Sure there are a few discrepancies, when compared to other versions, but this book rounds out the life of Erik, from beginning to end and leaves you mourning his death and wanting more. You will miss him, as I do.
One of my favorite books! Aug 8, 2008
I've always had a sort of obsession with The Phantom of the Opera ever since I was a kid. My parents would play the music when we took long trips during our vacation. When I was older, I found a copy of the original novel by Leroux, and loved it. I heard from others who loved the play, book, and music about this book, and they all recommended it, so I read it. I can't tell you how amazing it is! To finally get Erik's history, and to hear things from his point of view, was simply beautiful. My only complaint would be the epilogue, but other than that, anyone with an interest in the story should read this! :)
Wished the story never had to end.... Jun 19, 2008
My sister was insistant that I read this book, but I really wasn't interested...I had seen the movie and ofcourse I loved it, but my reading interests were somewhere else. However, after being told how wonderful it was I finally gave it a shot...Can I say, LOVED IT!!!! I was angry, sad, happy and totally in love with the Phantom...I loved this book so much that I was searching for it and I really didn't care that I spent $40.00. If you are a person who believes in impossible love this is a must read...
