A lot of the complaints are in regards to Erik's "childlike" personality. I didn't understand why this surprised people, until I realized that most are accustomed to the Andrew Lloyd Webber version, who made the Phantom sexy and desirable to the masses. Most people aren't as familiar with the Gaston Leroux Phantom, from the original novel. By that standard, *this* Erik's behavior was perfectly in character. I loved it.
Leroux Phantom is one of the hardest to pull off and, to me, the most interesting to read about. Most books feature the phantom more brooding and sexy, like the ALW version, or fiercely calculating and dry, like the Susan Kay version. Leroux Phantom is the most unstable, profusely emotional and strange Phantom of the bunch, and hardly sexy. And this book pulled it off especially well!
Seeing Christine and Erik's relationship progress in this novel was very interesting to me, and in its own way, steamy too. While this Erik is no poofy shirted bodice ripper *cough Gerard cough*, his interactions with Christine later in the novel are sweet and swoonworthy. I don't want to spoil too much of their development, but hardcore E/C shippers will be pleased with this one.
I had some things I didn't like so much, like the Daroga's involvement. I've never seen him become such a clear (if well-meaning) antagonist in their story. I prefer the Daroga to be supportive of Erik while still taking him to task when he's done something he ought not, NOT be the almost sole executor of Operation Steal Back Christine Daae Whether She Wants it Or Not. However, I could accept this change of character for the sake of the story.
Something else I didn't like was the assault and attempted rape of Christine on the night of their wedding. And no, it was not by Erik. While I suppose it made for suspense and shock value, it seemed like a vile and uneccessary tool just for the sake of making Erik's cruelty seem less bad. I didn't think that he should have been so easily excused and made out to be heroic just because he was a better alternative than Christine's would-be rapist.
Last thing I wasn't nuts about was the slightly creepy age difference. Most materials make Christine out to be at least 20, including the original novel. However this one starts out with her being only 16. While Erik is mentioned a couple of times as being in his 40s or 50s. And they're clearly rolling in the sack, if you catch my drift, long before her 17th birthday. Again, a somewhat creepy and glossed over detail, but I guess not horribly unusual for the time period.
Despite these grievances, to my surprise, by the end of the novel, I was so pleased and well satisfied with the story overall, I didn't have the heart to leave my standard 4 star review. I think any 'Eristine' shipper will thoroughly enjoy this one. It was well written, romantic, and interesting from start to finish.
