A child is born... His  mother's only gift is a mask. Precocious and  gifted, he will live friendless and alone. taunted and  abused, he will flee, only to find himself caged  again-as a freak in a Gypsy carnival. A brilliant  outcast... the world is his home. Filled with  bitter rage, he will kill to escape, becoming a  stonemason's apprentice in Rome... a dark magician at  the treacherous Persian court... and finally, the  genius behind the construction of the Paris Opera  House and the labyrinthine world below. Lacking  one thing only: A woman's love. Cloaked in secrets,  his power complete, he will see the exquisite  Christine and for the first time know what it means to  love. Obsessed, he will bring her into his eerie  subterranean world, driven to posses her heart and  soul. Phantom--A haunting  story of power and darkness, of magic and murder, of  sensuality and betrayal, and ultimately, the  unforgettable story of a man and a woman and the eternal  quality of love.

    My favourite book of all time.

    As a massive Phantom Of The Opera fan, I usually tend to stay away from the other "developements" of the original book. However, I decided to give this one a go, and am very glad I did!It starts of with Eriks mother's point of view, explaining her abnormal birth and the horrors of having a disfigured child. It becomes apparent that he is no normal child, but a musical and all round genius. It explores the feelings of her, and helps you to understand what kind of mother would be so cruel to her child. This book explained a lot of the questions I had though of after finishing the original, as well as a few I hadn't even thought of!Also, this was probably the only version that I didn't hate Christine as much, which I myself was surprised at. I loved Erik in this version, and was satisfied with many of the answers it gave me about him and his childhood. It almost made me think I was reading the original since Erik and the other charecters seemed like real people. I especially liked the part with the Persian, which makes you see and get an excellent feel for the man who risked his life for Erik.Overal, I though the plot and writing was good, but be prepared to bring a tissue. I dare even the most devoted Raoul fans to read this and not view Erik differently! Read, and re-read again and again!*****

    This book is amazing it goes everywhere the orginal book only hints at. It's an emotional rollercoaster of a book in so many ways some happy some sad some crazy, whether your a Phantom of the Opera fan or not you will enjoy this book, it doesn't hover just on the Christine part of Eriks (Phantom) life but from birth to death in great detail. You can see the personality of the Phantom you know from the Andrew Lloyd Webber version but alot more of it, hes a genius, moody, independent and loving man. Even though the original is truely amazing and a classic I believe if Gaston Leroux read this he would think wow this is what I should have wrote!
