The Phantom of the Opera - Gaston Leroux, Alexander Teixeira de Mattos Well, anyone who knows me.Ever since I saw the Broadway when I was five, I have been in love with The Phantom of the Opera. When I was old enough to understand it, I read the book immediately, and I’ve read it at least once a year since then. It holds a very special place in my heart, and while it isn’t perfect, it comes pretty close! The story is incredibly creative and heart-wrenching and tragic and terrifying and beautiful, all at once. Erik is both sinister and innocent, and you will be absolutely captivated by his story, and the story following the other characters as well, such as Christine, Raoul, the Persian, and even the managers of the Opera.This story leaves me in tears every time, and reading it will not be something that you regret.Read more?
