The Phantom of the Opera (Puffin Classics)

The Phantom of the Opera (Puffin Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

He lurked in the shadows of the Paris Opera House--a man with the voice of an angel but the face of a monster. His only hope for love is a beautiful soprano who draws him . . . to disaster.

Synopsis:

The "opera ghost" makes performers at the Paris Opera House nervous. When Christine disappears, a sense of dread begins to pervade. In an ever-increasing pattern of fear and violence, the Phantom of the Opera begins to strike, but always with the young singer at the centre of his macabre desires.

About the Author

Gaston Leroux, born in Paris in 1868, was a French journalist, playwright, and detective/thriller writer. Beginning his career as a crime reporter and war correspondent, he lived an adventurous life that took him to Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, and even into North Africa disguised as an Arab. His high-spirited, often dangerous, escapades and questioning nature provided much of the background and plot material for his sensational mystery and adventure stories, particularly those starring his reporter-sleuth, Joseph Rouletabille. One of his most famous detective novels, The Mystery of the Yellow Room, was published in 1907, and his works have been called “among the finest examples of the detective stories we possess.” But Leroux’s best-known story is The Phantom of the Opera (1911), whose macabre hero has been played in film by classic horror film stars Lon Chaney and Claude Rains. Leroux died in Nice in 1927.
