Christine and Raoul's 'childlike' love makes me queasy. The 'pretend' lunches they have (biscuits and port) remind me of the pretend tea parties little girls like to have.
I think Christine's feelings towards Erik, which she discusses on the rooftop, are complex in the extreme. I don't know if she loves him, but I think she's almost as obsessed with him as he is with her. I also think there is a strong sexual element to this obsession, she almost becomes hot and bothered talking about him on the rooftop. The language hints at this too; 'voracious', 'ardent'. etc.
