Format: Paperback
This is a FANTASTIC read. Film critic Roger Ebert is also a gifted weaver of the absurd and what-happens-next serial. Not only is the book hilariously improbable, Ebert also uses his passion for London and the eccentrics that populate it to great effect. The result is compelling, surprising, and always riotous. This book shows a side of Roger Ebert that readers of his reviews and fans of his popular TV show may not be familiar with. Do yourself a favor - buy this reasonablely priced book, enjoy it, and tell your friends. It's a real treat!

Cute and Funny 22 Feb 2003
By Cee Cee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a cute book, and Ebert certainly has a sense of the absurd and the ironic. The story takes poor Mason all over as he tries to set his life straight, while at the same time unravelling a mystery murder. Someone compared this book with the works of P. G. Wodehouse, but I felt a little let down on that aspect, with Wodehouse being preferable. And many of the things that happened to Mason seemed a bit too ridiculous and random to me, making it less ironic coincidence and more "Good God! How did *that* happen?!" And it is certainly as silly and light as it sounds. Still, not a bad read, if you enjoy the absurd and the comedic, especially British style, and certainly not lacking in strange plot twists.

Just a Warning: If you are considering buying this on the merit of its being about the Phantom of the Opera, think again. What little of the musical is mentioned here is inaccurately represented (perhaps purposely for copyright reasons?? Although, if that were the case, I would think he wouldn't be allowed to mention it so specifically at all) and plays no significant role.

The Best 16 Jun 2013
By reporter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This books sneaks up on you. It is absolutely one of the funniest books I've ever read. The only drawback to it is that, to enjoy it to its fullest, you really have to have a fair knowledge of "Phantom" -- the book, the ALW play, and the underground. But it's funny even if you don't. Enjoy.
