When it comes to classics, sometimes it is hard for me to be able to get into them because of the way they are written. I haven’t read many classics that I have enjoyed. One of my all time favorite classics is Dracula and so I figured it was time to read this one and hopefully like it.

When it came to writing style, it was very easy to follow along and it made it easy to understand the plot and what was going on. It also contained letters between some of the characters which made the mystery part of the plot quite intriguing!

The characters were interesting and easy to connect with. Although some felt less developed than others, it didn’t take away from getting invested in the plot. I would say that the Opera Ghost was my favorite character and reminded me a lot of Shakespeare characters.

Overall, it was a good read and will definitely be up there near Dracula on my favorite classics list. If you haven’t read it yet I would highly recommend it.
