The book club pick for March is The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux. There are a number of versions out there - the most common English translation is available for free on Project Gutenberg. If you'd rather read an unabridged translation, I'll be having some other options sent over so check back in the library next week.
From Goodreads: "The Phantom of the
Opera lives under a famous opera house. A mere chorus girl, Christine
Daae, becomes, under his guidance, a well known singer with a beautiful
voice. But her old childhood sweetheart, the Vicount Raoul de Changy,
has also entered the picture. The past comes back to haunt her, the
future ahead is uncertain, and the present is undecided. Who will win
the heart of Christine?; the handsome, rich Raoul or the masked Angel of
Music? A story of romance, murder, sacrifice and sadness, this
riveting, seductive tale will keep your emotions high until the very
last page of the shocking conclusion."
Hope to see you then!
