Haunting

This story was purely stunning. In the beginning, I was confused, having seen the play and the movie, as to who the characters were; in the middle of the story, it was chilling, but almost comical in the ways that he taunted the managers; and the ending is BEAUTIFUL. I would probably get my lopped off for saying this, but, in my opinion, the book is the original, and by far the best, interpretation. A fantastic ending, with plenty of suspense leading up to it which I had not found in the play. All in all, a fabulous story, that infused happiness and sadness in one ending, bringing me to tears, which I admit fully and to the extent of my eyes burning with a weird contentment. A classic.

Not like the play

If you were to read this book after having loved the play, you would think that Andrew Lloyd Webber went a little crazy with his interpretation. However, if you look at it as two different stories you will LOVE it. This truly is a good book.

Not as good as the broadway

The book was good but not as good as the broadway. I feel like the book needed some awesome singing to go with it!:)
