Absolutely nothing like any of the movies (except for Lon Chaney, of course), and I love that about this book. It's so intriguing and disgusting at the same time. The differences between the book and ... Читать весь отзыв

Review: The Phantom of the Opera

Пользовательский отзыв  - Kiwi - Goodreads

The story itself, and the musical that was based off of the book, were fantastic. However, the actual written work, including all the letters it contained between Christine and Raoul, was enough to turn me off of ever finishing the book once I started it. Читать весь отзыв

Об авторе (2012)

Gaston Leroux was born on 6 May 1868 in Paris and after school in Normandy, he returned to Paris to study law. His extreme gambling is well-documented after he squandered the millions he had inherited, narrowly escaping bankruptcy. He worked as a court reporter and theatre critic before landing a job as an international correspondent for Le Matin. During this time Leroux travelled to Russia to experience and report on the Russian Revolution. In 1907 he gave up journalism to become a writer, and quickly found success with Le Mystère de la Chambre Jaune (1908). He became well-known for his popular and acclaimed crime and thriller novels, but Leroux also wrote poetry and short fiction. His most famous work, Le Fantôme de l'Opéra (The Phantom of the Opera), was inspired by a tour of the cellars at the Paris Opera, and published in 1911. The story has been adapted for film and, most notably, for Andrew Lloyd Webber's long-running musical. Gaston Leroux died on 15 April 1927.
