I've re-read for the millionth time "The Phantom of the Opera". I strongly recommend people get the original book, not the new summarised versions that are sheer crap.
it is one of the most brilliant books I've ever read; and along with the "Dante Club", it is one of the few that have made me doubt how much of it was real and how much was fiction. Both authors manage to blur that line between their own imagination and real facts.
But if you're into real facts and not mistery though, I'd recommend "In Cold Blood". The movie was perfectly done, imo, it's terrifying but chillingly true.
"There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of either merit or sense." Elizabeth Bennet
