Author Examines Worldwide Popularity of The Phantom of the Opera

Portland, Oregon (PressExposure) June 06, 2009 -- 100,000,000 million fans have flocked to see The Phantom of the Opera on stage since its release in 1986, and millions anxiously await Love Never Dies, the upcoming Webber sequel due for release in 2010. Its popularity never ends, and every day people worldwide search the Internet seeking answers to questions on various aspects of the story.

In January of 2008, Vicki began answering those questions in an obscure blog that blossomed into worldwide readership. Phantom fans from 95 countries have enjoyed her candid insights. After popular demand from faithful readers to place her writing into book form, Lessons From The Phantom of the Opera was released by Xlibris Corporation on May 1, 2009.

Vicki examines the story in a new and unique way. The book steps behind the scenes and dissects the characters, emotions, hidden symbolism, and key events. It leads its readers on an emotional journey studying all aspects of Leroux's original work to Webber's popular musical and movie versions. Personal reflection is encouraged, and the author poses questions to incite further thought and reflection on the reader's part. As a result, lessons and life applications emerge for everyone to enjoy.

Already a hit with fans, Lessons From The Phantom of the Opera is unique and unlike any other Phantom review on the market. It works well as a personal study journal for individuals or a companion-teaching tool for educators to Gaston Leroux's original novel.
