    " Gothic romance, published a hundred years ago - for me very different than the stage version. From a techie standpoint, the scenery and costumes were magnificent. But otherwise, I am not fond of the story. So I found this much better than I expected. While a horror story is basically plot driven, I still would have enjoyed having more character development or perhaps exploration of motivations for some behavior. Half the fun was investigating the real Paris Opera construction information and how Laroux incorporated that into his novel. "

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this classic of Russian literature. Tolstoy gives us complex characters, invites us to grapple with the large issues of life and gives us a glimpse into the sources of contentment and despair in an ordinary life. For a thousand pages, this writing kept me engaged to such an extent that it never felt long. "

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.
