Book Review: The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Lereux

phantomIn the book rendition of The Phantom of the Opera, later to be converted into the famous play, there is nothing supernatural about the Phantom. He’s really just sort of a weirdo, named Erik, who devised a bunch of special effects and secret passages in the opera house. An odd yet original and imaginative novel for the era – or at least, it would’ve been, but the English translation I read was difficult to follow at times.
