    Now look here: "Phantom" is my second-favorite musical. I love the entire plot, the study of human nature, and all of the characters: even that old fop Raoul. Christine is weak-willed, yes, but it fits with the time period, and she does have to go through some horrifying experiences. Raoul is sweet and truly cares for Christine, even though most "phans" of the book hate him. Even Erik is lovable in his own dark, twisted way. He's interesting and complex, though sadistic.

Christine is weak-willed, yes, but it fits with the time period, and she does have to go through some horrifying experiences. Raoul is sweet and truly cares for Christine, even though most "phans" of the book hate him. Even Erik is lovable in his own dark, twisted way. He's interesting and complex, though sadistic. All of this is because society has dealt him a horrible hand - cursed with a terribly deformed face and no one to love him. Don't you think you would go crazy? So when I put the play on hold at our local library, I expected to enjoy it as much as I enjoy the movie and Broadway musical. "What better way to get closer to the story than to read it?" I thought. And then...it all went to hell, honestly. I read the whole play, yeah, but I hated it. The dialogue was unrealistic, overly dramatic, and cheesy. The characters were one-dimensional and boring. It was like the horrible lovechild Andrew Lloyd Webber and George Bush. Okay, now I don't even know what I'm saying, but I hated it. Do not read this book.
