Such an interesting book!!
Still my favorite book after ten years
I'm an absolute fangirl when it comes to this book. I try to read it once a year, and I react to the story the same way every time. I read this book before seeing the movies and plays, and I don't feel any of them hit home. It's all about that ending, and I have yet to see a movie/play where they keep to the book and provoke the same emotional response.
A charming tale of kidnapping, rescue, and adventure
Disclaimer: I have not seen the movie.
This is an enjoyable, well written novel. Some of the phrases and words are dated, but the definitions help clear most of it up. It had a great story, and I was disappointed that it ended.
I'm very happy to have read this, it's very interesting and I was hooked. It's of course very different than other interpretations but I personally think this is best. Confusing at first but you'll catch on easily.
The characters are dimensional and the phantom himself is by far my favorite. The book isn't too long ( too bad ). So check it out. :)
My favorite book
By Brony Girl :D
This book is wonderful! I loved it when I read a physical copy of it and I just had to have it on my phone. Since I read the book I have fallen in love with the music from the broadway production and the storyline that came from it. This book inspired my favorite musical, and favorite music! Please read it, it's wonderful.
it is just like the movie
By unknown typer
this book was asome. also this book is exactly like the movie. you should get it. it ot scary.
This book is the best ever but if u want to enjoy the movie u need to watch it first because if u read the book first then u will see the movie and despise it for its terrible off story but i watched the movie first and even though the book and movie r different they still go along the same lines so watch the movie first!!😄😄😄😄😄😍😍😍😍🎬🎬🎬🎬

The book was good but not as good as the broadway. I feel like the book needed some awesome singing to go with it!:)
