When I say that this book is really fantastic I really mean it!!!! I first saw the film and I was really absorbed in the story. Then I bought the book and I found that the story is really UNMISSABLE!!!!!!! Many important events were left out in the film, that is why I am telling you to read this story because it is really magnificent! The Phantom is not really a ghost but he's real. Will he really destroy a quarter of Paris if Christine refuses to love him? Well if you want the answer just read this book.
