A malicious spectre haunts the Parisian Opera house. This murderous fiend speaks through walls, abducts innocents through mirrors, and holds the opera management in a cruel state of hostage. But when this monster falls for the beautiful Christine Daae, his powers of attractive enticement and malevolent mayhem all come to the surface. Who can put an end to this reign of terror? Discover the wonders of Gaston Leroux's gothic thriller in a way that will tantalize the senses. The actual unabridged novel is by far the best way to experience the story of the haunting yet humanistic Phantom of the Opera.

"An Unexpected Pleasure!"
I have seen most of the movie versions, and was fascinated with this story as a kid. Saw the broadway musical and was probably the only person who didn't love it. Recently found this version and translation after searching and testing all the others. So many choices! Was blown away by finally hearing it read. This is truly a classic novel and suspenseful story telling. I now understand why it has become the source of so many adaptations. None of them doing this little masterpiece justice. A total unexpected pleasure read by a master reader who slowly takes you to the depth and unravels the mysteries that lie hidden within. Savor this little gem every moment you listen.
