Es ironico que de las decenas de obras que escribiera el novelista frances Gaston Leroux la que le ha dado inmortalidad es el clasico del horror llamado El Fantasma de la Opera, la historia de un artista desfigurado que se oculta en las catacumbas de la Opera de Paris para vengarse contra el mundo, hasta el dia que se enamora de una bella cantante, que cambia por completo el curso de su vida. A esta pequena obra maestra la han llevado al teatro, a la comedia musical y numerosas veces al cine, con tratamientos que son igualmente clasicos, ya que cada director le ha dado al personaje interpretaciones distintas, desde convertirlo en simbolo del artista rechazado por la sociedad hasta representacion de las mas increibles aberraciones sicologicas. Sea cual fuere la version esta es una de las mas entretenidas novelas del genero y de ahi su eterna popularidad.

Filled with all the color and spectacle of the Paris Opera House in the nineteenth century, and the ageless fascination of love transformed into murderous obsession, this classic work of mystery and suspense remains a riveting journey into the darkest regions of the human heart.

    " What a difficult read. I am already familiar with the story from the stage and movie versions and was so excited to read the book. It took me an unusually long time to get through. I would reccomend it, but only if you are a patient reader with time to spare. "

    " I liked this one! It's a little different from the movie/musical. But I do like that the Phantom has a name in the book; it makes him more human I think. "

About the Author
Author Gaston Leroux

Gaston Leroux (1868–1927), French novelist, was born in Paris. He earned a law degree in 1889 but turned to journalism in his mid twenties and later sailed the world as a correspondent, reporting on the Russian Revolution of 1905. In the early 1900s, he began writing novels and became best known for The Phantom of the Opera (1910). His novel The Mystery in the Yellow Room sparked the development of detective fiction as a genre.
