it was too complicated for me

What disappointed you about Paradise Lost?

it was too above my comprehension. i don't read poetry and such a long poem too. too wordy. i rate it high in performance as it must be very hard to read this book. i guess i am not into poetry.

What other book might you compare Paradise Lost to and why?

i don't know as i never read a book like it before.

What does Flo Gibson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

it was a hard book to read. she did a good job with a very heady, heavy book.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Paradise Lost?

i prefer the story to have an order. this poem went al over the place.

Any additional comments?

i am not one to judge a poem. i tried it. it was not for me. some poeple will love it. i love the story of the creation but in prose style i guess.

Horrible, horrible narration

The narrator makes this audio book completely unlistenable. Could they really not find any one better?
