I started reading this book because there was a movie version of the Phantom of the Opera, and also a musical of it at the Broadway. It sounded interesting and the setting of the French opera drew my attention to the story.
To tell the truth, I was rather confused by the story. Leroux had used first person tense in some parts of the story, as if he was there at the opera, trying to find out if the Opera Ghost really existed. Moreover, by weaving in the characters that actually existed in history into the story, Leroux made the story sound very realistic; however, it may not be a good thing to sound so realistic, because from time to time, I would have to think very hard about whether the Phantom of the Opera and this story had existed in reality, or just in one’s imagination? All in all, I think I would rather choose to believe that the story is fictional, since it would be too awful if anything like this actually happened. Another of Leroux’s techniques used in this story is the pieces being performed on the opera theater’s stage. For example, the singers performed Othello and Faust, hinting the start of the tragedy, and the love of the evil.
Most of the stories’ climaxes are at the middle of the book; however, I think that the climax of The Phantom of the Opera is at the very end. Personally, I believe that Christine Daae loved the opera ghost, Erek, as much as she loved Raoul, the Vicomte de Chagny, although she may have considered it as sympathy. I think that is why she decided to flee with Raoul after her last performance instead of before it, to say her last goodbye to the Opera Ghost, even though it would put herself and Raoul in danger.
