    " Incredible music that is surprisingly simple to learn with practice. Well written and quality music is hard to find these days, I was very impressed with this set. Do they have a book for the musical Cats? "

    " this book was pretty good. the movie was nothing like it at all. even though i thought the movie was a lot better i'd say this was a book worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kenny | 6/16/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara Nia (Tea and Parchment) | 6/4/2013

    " Wonderful piano and vocal arrangements. I personally love this musical, despite the fact that most of the songs included here are hugely over-used. I adore them, none the less, both to play and to sing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 3/22/2013

    " Just a simple piano accompaniment and vocal selection from Phantom of the Opera. Good for low-intermediate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meira | 12/18/2012

    " The movie was better, but it's hard to compare when they're so different. It's a great premise so I couldn't hate it. I hope to go to the show soon! "

    " Honestly I am a webbet (Andrew Lloyd webber fan) a huge fan. It would be an honor to meet him. I love the phantom if the opera but somebody says that garage butler was terrible (which I harshly disagree with) but I love Andrew Lloyd webber and all of his work "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Veronica | 2/23/2012

    " Hugely debated as my favorite musical of all time. I love the "behind the scenes" feel of this edition and the music... brilliant! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 9/11/2011

    " If you loved the broadway show or the movie, you'll love the book...more detail, and gets pretty creepy. Lots of stuff they couldn't do in a play. A great classic. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kaitlyn | 6/27/2011

    " I loved the movie so much!!!!!!! The book just didnt have the same as the movie. This is the one time I can truly say the movie was better than the book. Not what I thought it would be. Makes me think a little diferent about it though. Still prefer the movie not many books I can say that about. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nika | 6/9/2011

    " I played Christine in a SCENE Variety Show and performed her Phantom of the Opera Theme Song. (with the Phantom/got my first standing ovation too)-Goucher College Md. I so looked like her with my super long hair down to my butt aside from being able to sing the high parts at the end of this piece. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 6/2/2011

    " Nice book. Wish it went into the history of Phantom of the Opera a little more. Awesome Pictures. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 5/24/2011

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle | 5/22/2011

    " Very interesting, I love the play and movie, but the book is very different. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 5/22/2011

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mel | 5/20/2011

    " I grew up listening to the musical, but reading Leroux's original work adds a depth to Erik(the Phantom). Wonderfully written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cami | 5/18/2011

    " Phenomenal! This book was so amazing! It was so packed with emotion, it made me cry. You have to pity the Phantom... he just wants to be loved. This book actually deserves to be a classic unlike a lot of the others... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 5/18/2011

    " I was surprised by the similarities and differences between this book and the musical, which is how I was introduced to the story. I think that, if you liked the musical you should read the book but don't be surprised when the story is very different "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jblackwell | 5/17/2011

    " That was fun. On a whim, I picked up the book at the library and…well…it was enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Missy | 5/7/2011

    " I am loving this book so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leigh | 5/4/2011

    " very different from the movie/musical adaptation- but a classic, tragic love story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 5/3/2011

    " It's a wonderful show, with beautiful music. It was very strange, knowing the musical so well, to read this story and have no music involved. I had a hard time separating the book from the musical. While a good read, be prepared to not be immersed in Andrew Lloyd Webber's melody and lyrics. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Simona | 4/24/2011

    " «Ci sono molti imbecilli in questa vicenda!» [testuali parole di Moncharmin].
    Di una noia estenuante. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley | 4/21/2011

    " If you love the musical/movies, you'll love this novel! Captivating, mysterious, definitely one those books that when you read it, you just can't put it down. "

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.
