The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux
Published July 7, 2020
I listened to an audiobook reading of this which was very good, although the reader trying to get through quite so many French words was a bit difficult. It’s a good story, though. I was surprised how close to the musical it is, and yet so far away. The book is formatted more like a memoir, pieced together from fragments of evidence and eye-witness accounts, but is still at heart a ghost story that you have to believe in.
