From AudioFile
Geoffrey Howard reads this early twentieth-century melodrama in a British accent that sounds slightly foreign; it's a bit distracting at first but ultimately gives the story the Continental mood it calls for. He shines at moving the story briskly, effortlessly keeping it involving, even through its pulpy excesses and sillier excursions, such as some comic relief involving the opera's managers. Howard falls short only by holding back in rendering some of the Phantom's more extreme behaviors--mad laughter and other scene-chewing (though he conveys fully his love-sick last extremity). Perhaps his restraint is wise; his ability to make such a wild purple tale not seem ridiculous is an accomplishment.

From Publishers Weekly
Gaston Leroux's famous gothic novel of intrigue and romance beneath the Paris Opera House has spawned a number of spinoffs; this storybook adaptation is not among the more felicitous. It tells, of course, of the beautiful opera singer Christine and the choice she must make between the disfigured Phantom, who taught her her craft, and the Viscount she has long loved. Leroux's is an intricate and complex story; here, it is given a summarized, reductive treatment. Characters and their motivations are scantily developed; the prose has a rushed, breathless quality that is overly melodramatic even for its subject; and, as presented, many specifics of the plot, as well as its eventual resolution and meaning, seem likely to leave children bewildered. The illustrations are stylized and garishly colored; they do not help...

Review
"[D]ensely argued yet lucidly written, [this book] takes an entirely new look at a text, clearly related to the Gothic, that has been curiously marginalized while being continuously culturally reproduced over the last hundred years." -- David Punter, Professor of English, University of Bristol

The Phantom of the Opera goes to New York. Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From AudioFile
The Phantom of the Opera escapes to the U.S. and becomes a ruthless multimillionaire, still masked and obsessed with the singer Christine. Then a letter from Paris changes his life. What happens next is told from various perspectives, each of which advances the plot. It's a shame none of the ensemble of actors gets credit because they all do a marvelous job. The soft-voiced phantom, the snobby columnist, the evil Darius-each adds color to the story while painting a vivid portrait of early twentieth-century New York. The dialogue on human nature between the priest and God hits the heights...
