Publisher's Summary

Paradise Lost is the greatest epic poem in the English language. In words remarkable for their richness of rhythm and imagery, Milton tells the story of Man's creation, fall, and redemption to "justify the ways of God to men." Milton produced characters which have become embedded in the consciousness of English literature, the frail, human pair, Adam and Eve; the terrible cohort of fallen angels; and Satan, tragic and heroic in his unremitting quest for revenge. The tale unfolds from the aftermath of the great battle between good and evil to the moving departure of Adam and Eve from Eden, with human and eternal anguish intertwined in magnificent resonance.

ahh... if only

if only this title were UN-abridged. ~sigh~ but otherwise, it is well-narrated, and the sound is good. and I must say, I was quite relieved to hear a female narrator reading Eve's part. it's good as a supplement to reading the work yourself. it's actually a good place to start if you are going to read it yourself, as it prepares you for the style and the plot.

Not at all a decent version

When I purchased this, I expected John Milton's "Paradise Lost." This abridged version cuts out about 4-5 of the original books within the epic, and usually the cuts are extremely important storyline information. I would suggest reading the book or looking somewhere else for the audio, because this version is not what you want.
