Like many others, I love the musical and the movie has inspired my life goal. Although I love Andrew Lloyd Webbers musical and movie, AND of course the plot of the book, the only regret Im sure Christine had in her choices at the opera house were not staying with Erik aka the PHANTOM!!! In the movie, was the first time there was Such A HOTTIIE IN THE PHANTOM MASK!!! GO GERARD BUTLER!!! If I was Christine, and face it: my name is only one letter off (replace the e at the end with an a) I would totally go with Erik, he had a shrine to me, sang to me, IS I LOVE WITH ME, is hot, and is SO SWEET!!! So, ya know, I would rather be with the hot guy who loves me, than the ugly Butt-Head named Raoul. Besides, Erik would make my spirit start to SOAR!!! And made me live as Id never lived before! Rauol on the other hand didnt beleive me when I told him about the Phantom is ugly, not trustworthy, and sings like a GIRL!!! So as you can see, my opinion is pretty much buy the book, keep in mind how awesome Erik is, and how ugly and stupid and how much of a BUTT WIPE RAOUL IS!!! BTW I have based my opinions about looks off of the 2004 movie with Gerard Butler,Emmy Rossum, and UGLY BUTT WIPE Patrik Wilson. I Luv You Gerard!!

Good

The story is really great. But there are spelling mistakes. You can read through it but it is very annoying.

    A classic? I think not...........

    In my opinion, this is the worst book I have ever read. When I began reading this book, I had the image that the book would be a classic tale with much emotion and be a hooker on every page. I was very much disappointed in finding that the book was not like this at all. I thought that almost the entire book was simply a waste of pages. I felt that it would have been better off if the first fifty or so pages were put into one page. As for emotion, the book was very lacking. I found no difference from page to page, everything was the same. I also thought that the whole basis was repeated about fifty times. The writer has a wide vocabulary, that was for sure, but I felt that if this writer were my professor, I would fall asleep within 3 minutes of his lecture. If you are hoping to find excitement and suspence in your next read, take my word for it, this is not the book for you!
