    This book is a version for children of 'The phantom of the opera'... A baaad version of the beautiful story of the phantom of the opera. I didn't like it at all. You should be surprised. I, in fact, love everything about this story... Except for the ending. But that's not what we are talking about here. So, the book was not as good as it should have been. This is me: before(right) and after(left) It was was too short. There were a lot of details missing.

So, the book was not as good as it should have been. This is me: before(right) and after(left) It was was too short. There were a lot of details missing. Details that would have made the book more vivid, if given. Details and descriptions. The events, also, were told way to short, like Shannon Donelly couldn't wait to finish writing the book. He has writen it like he was running or something. So, during reading I felt like running too and sleepy (of course after running so long, you feel tired). This book is very... Uhm... Dehydrated! But it would be a nice book for children. Just show them the movie first. This is one of those few times when the movie is actually pretty good.

    Another favorite of mine, this book is part thriller/horror, part romantic fantasy, a tragedy with elements of comedy. I loved this book and I loved the show, although the most recent movie adaptation was only about a 75 out of 100. The outcast "phantom" who seeks only to be loved even in spite of his deformities is a character many can relate to. Though not all of our scars are physical ones, we want to be loved as we are. That's the romantic fantasy, your typical beauty and the beast story. It Another favorite of mine, this book is part thriller/horror, part romantic fantasy, a tragedy with elements of comedy.

The outcast "phantom" who seeks only to be loved even in spite of his deformities is a character many can relate to. Though not all of our scars are physical ones, we want to be loved as we are. That's the romantic fantasy, your typical beauty and the beast story. It's what he does as his fantasy grows by degrees more and more unattainable that leads to the horror. His obsession drives him to the depths of mad behavior. Meanwhile the hapless owners of the opera house (the comic figures) can only watch, for the most part helplessly, as the situation spins further and further out of control. Despite the fantastic qualities this story possesses, I truly feel that the character of the Phantom represents something for all of us. It's a must read.

    Great fantasy for kids. Recommended by my granddaughter. How a person looks does not matter as great soul prevails.

    I'd seen tons of movie versions of this before I read the book (and I have to say when "Wishbone" used to be on PBS his episode was the best), so I already knew the story. I really like reading it at first, but near the end I lost interest. The writing didn't seem as good, and the ending seemed almost rushed.

    These Great Illustrated Classics are like Cliff Notes. If my daughter likes them in this form, then I give her the less censored version. Good if you preview books for your kids and can't remember them from when you read them in school. These Great Illustrated Classics are like Cliff Notes.

    I'm sure the original story was good, but this version seemed like just a quick and vague book report by someone completely uninterested. And the art for some reason had them dressed as if they were from the 80s or something, oddly enough....
