Christine Daae was brought up in the Paris Opera house. Her musician father suddenly dies, telling her he will send her an angel of music to look after her. She grows up and discovers that she is hearing a voice, telling her and teaching her to sing. She believes he is the angel of music but he is known in the Opera House simply as The Phantom. Although she is fascinated and drawn towards the phantom, she falls in love with her childhood sweetheart, The Vicomte de Chagny - or Raoul - but the Phantom won't take this lightly...

thrilling and captivating

(5 Sterne)

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I've watched one of the movies and it was never as thrilling as this book. the reader did a wonderful job! the book did leave me feeling sorrowful as it was apparent he was a man made the way he was by the cruelty of others and the appearance he was born with that prevented him from being happy. it was rather sad. but a good book all the same.

couldnt get past the viscount

oh sweet mother of male entitlement. every thought and action that raoul has is just embarrassing and infuriatingly sexist. i know that its just a product of the era but this was pretty egregious. giving a fair review because i didnt finish.

loved it

(4 Sterne)

I was quite shoked of the storyline being so different from the Andrew Loyd Webbers opera but loved it none the less. The reading was very pleasant and I found no fault in it. Thank you :)

even tho i get lost at times when listening, I still got back in track. maybe because of how the story is read. i just noticed the weird cuts in between idk

Excellent reader

(5 Sterne)

Excellent reader. I'll certainly listen to his next works. The book itself is pretty good too, albeit the ending is kinda weird. Recommended.

Amazing Classic

(4,5 Sterne)

Other than some mispronounced names, this was a great audio recording of an amazing classic novel.

an excellent book, a magnificent voice! thank you!

Ugh, can we say melodrama?

(2,5 Sterne)

I love the adaptations I've seen of the novel. I LOVE the soundtrack to A.L.Weber's version, but this was tough to get through. Characters were bland and over dramatic, dialogue was repetitive and excruciating, and scene and POV changes were confusing. I did not enjoy this book, and that is a surprise and disappointment to me. The reader was pretty good overall, but all of his men sounded the same and all of his women sounded like Winnie the Pooh. Please forgive me. I'm very grateful to the reader for volunteering his time to read. Seriously, you're a rock star human being.
