Top 100 Book: I thought it was number 100, but I got the wrong book! So not in the Top 100

Star Rating:: ****

Quick Review::
The Paris Opera House, early 1900's is mysteriously "haunted" by O.G, the Opera Ghost.
This novel written in a detective Style follows the story of the Christine Daae and her twisted love triangle with the Opera Ghost and Raoul.

Its a pretty gritty novel with love, murder, jealousy, rage, mystery and horror. It's interesting to know that this is based on true facts and the author spent a lot of time investigating the Paris Opera House!

Quick Review::

Politics, Sex and Murder sums up Gregory Maguire’s take on Frank Baum’s classic The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Not my cup of tea….. A meaty 400 odd pages of quite frankly boring dribble between characters. The book attempts to show the Wicked Witch of the West in a different light but it fails to make an impact on me.
