The Original Phantom

You cannot be a Phantom phan without reading this book. True, it's absent of music which is a lot of the reason people like it, but the story gives a more indepth look to Erik's character, and into the romance of Christine and Raoul. This book is the real version, the very first and original Phantom. It's short and easy to understand if you're someone who isn't all that big into reading. There is every different level of love imaginable, and more understanding as to why Erik had such an effect on Christine in the first place. It gives an introduction to things to look into for further reading as well, such as Faust or Masque of the Red Death, both of which is seems Erik can relate to. Wonderful read and absolutely moving!

Great even without the songs!

Suitably suspenseful and creepy, with plenty of good scares, this book is also remarkably deep and well-written for what is essentially a horror tale. The movie is good, the play is wonderful, but the novel contains so much more! If you are a Phantom fan, you must read the original.
