    " The main characters were fine ,but the secondary characters were much more entertaining. I loved the introduction of Diana in this book. The exchanges between Rothgar and Diana were what kept me up all night reading. "

    " The supporting characters who show up halfway through the book are much more interesting than the main ones, alas. The main characters' story in the second half is a bit of a letdown. "

    " Masked balls are always good for these type of novels. "

    " One of my favorite romances for the sheer unconventionality of it. The heroine is plump, smart and bold and Malloren is a good match for her. Their banter and the troubles they find themselves in are quite amusing. Haven't read this in a long time but this makes me want to pick it up again. "

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.
