The Phantom of the Opera - Gaston Leroux - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Phantom of the Opera:

The haunting tale of a lovesick specter.

My favorite Gaston Leroux quote from the book:

"Our lives are one masked ball."

Questions to ponder while reading The Phantom of the Opera:

Are theaters really that complex?

Would you pick the scorpion or the grasshopper?

My review of the book:

A classic thriller.

Finished in a single sitting.

I really want to see the Paris Opera House now.
