I have always loved this story, but felt more sympathy for the Phantom than most people. This story is well written, and develops the characters with more depth than can be felt with the musical. I find this to be a very enjoyable read and recommend it highly.

Costumes and Filigrees by Dayna Stevenson is a must read book that combines Gaston Learoux's original Phantom of the Opera and few parts of Andrew Lloyd Webber's version. It tells the story with more details from Christine's, Roul's and Erik's point of view in third person. Definately a must read

Great book! I was put off a little at first by Christine's bratty personality, but the way she grew and matured and found love was beautiful and very gratifying. I also loved all the little details and the cultural and historical references.

It took me about four days to read this novel. I love the charscters so much except Ive never heard the story before so this was a first and i practically fell in love with the Phantom. In the beginning th main character christine is such a brat and she is so selfcentered for most of th book, but really close to the end i started to notice a change and i really hope that was on purpose because i liked it. But such a wonderful book and my heart melted for every heartwrenching line that was said.. especially when phantom says "why, christine, why?!" If you agree please tell!

I loved this story! Although at first I didn't like how Christine was written (like a petulant spoiled brat that coveted other people's things), I did like the end result. Very well written, though at times the terminology was off putting. I don't think any of these characters would use phrasing such as "pretty interesting" or the like. Overall, it was very well done.

It took me possibly about two weeks to finish this book, which says a lot with me juggling school and personal life. I positively loved this rendition, and anyone who loved the book, movie, or musical is going to love this. The story probably isn't what you'll think ;)

I liked this better then the original phantom of the opera!! I didn't like Christine for the first half of the book, but was glad that she changed into a better person later! Great for all of those who have a soft spot for the Phantom (Eric). Great beauty and the beast type story.
