what is it?

It's a novel. It goes through Erik's history, like in Persia and stuff (much cooler in this book than in Leroux.) It ends up with Raoul (who this book makes me hate more, if that's poosible) telling the story.

Allie (pearlrose95) | 40 comments That seems awesome!
I saw a different version if the play, by kopit and yeston... After seeing webbers, it was awful. The plot was ttly different, the music far frm as beautiful. The only thing I liked was that u met phantoms dad, and he killed carlotta.
