    "Incomplete audio"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This audio book had about a page missing at the end of the chapter on the roof of the opera, and several pages missing at the end of the torture chamber chapter.

    "Unlike any play I've ever seen"

    I've seen Phantom of the Opera on the stage in Chicago and London. Neither of them come close to the ture story their based on. In all the theaters we see a beautiy and the beast story line which is not the true story. This book doesn't even follow any movie I've seen either. Here we meet 'OG' and learn how he came to be the 'OG'. We also learn how he came to reveal himself to Christine and how she's been in-love with another guy the whole time. We see here how 'OG' tries to get Christine to love him and all the steps he took to keep people from his world. The end of the book does confuse a little. I would recommend it to all people who have see the play or movies.
