The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux

The Phantom of the Opera, written by Gaston Leroux, is the novel that started the interest in the Phantom of the Paris Opera House. Christine Daae is an actress who has been receiving singing lessons from what she calls “the Angel of Music”. It is really the Phantom, who frequents “box 5” and lives in the underground of the Opera House. He quickly becomes obsessed with young Christine and tries to force her into becoming his wife. At the same time, another member of this “love triangle”, Raoul de Chagny, tries to catch Christine’s attention and save her from the clutches of the Phantom. Overall, it was a great book and I enjoyed reading it.  If you saw and enjoyed Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical, you would like reading this too.
