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::

A beautifully poignant Romantic Comedy from Ben Elton. This novel is written in an "Adrian Mole Diary" style and follows Sam and Lucy in their desperate quest for a child. This is full of laugh out loud gags, no really, I found myself chuckling out loud on quite a few occasions but it's not without a few tear-jerking moments, failed IVF treatments, betrayal, jealousy. Its a very easy read and a very enjoyable one too!
