I got his book from a friend for my birhtday (my 'sweet 16') and as soon as I had the chance I sat down and started to read the story again. The translation is a little bit different from the other copy I have but overall it's basically saying the same thing. I like the fact that this book includes pictures, notes at the bottom of the pages, and the little illustrations at the beginning of each chapter. By and by the book has been in many different forms and versions, but remember... they didn't call this version 'The Essential Phantom of the Opera' just to be fancy, they really mean it!!!
This book is absolutely excellent, a must-read for all Phantom of the Opera fans. Gives wonderful details, background, and translations - if you're a phan, this will become your Bible!
I really like the Essential Phantom of the Opera. It tells what the french words mean or just extra stuff that you never even knew. It's a must buy for people who don't fully understand the book. :)
