I started this book allowing myself a week to read it and finished it in one day, I simply couldn't put it down. Granted it's a bit difficult to read, but it gets easier once you get into it. Quite possibly one of the best books I've ever read, having read a lot.

Elizabethan English, but that is a draw. Paradise Lost is worthy of a read and a re-read again and again. Can't be beat!

I really enjoyed this book. I got it for my Major British Author's class but now I'm happy I got it in general. It is fascinating. The writing style is stimulating and makes you think, but thank god for the footnotes and my professor's guidance. It had made the book even more fascinating to me.

Milton and Dante have formed many of our ideas about what Heaven and Hell are like. In Paradise Lost, Milton brings Adam and Eve to our front door, gives Satan a hero's welcome, and brings God's power into question. This may not appear so at first, but if looked at critically and analyzed, there are many hidden messages. The introduction in this work, by Leonard, discloses these hidden messages to you.

Paradise Lost is of course one of the great classics and thus needs no further praise. This ebook is great for personal reading, but does not have the line numbers one will need for a class.

Great novel to read about the creation and the fall of man through the intervention of free will and evil.

Although the language may be daunting in the beginning, once you have gained a feel for the writing and its pace, the book proves to be wonderful in its imagery and its powerful inquisistion into what it means to be mortal. It delves into its implications and provides the insight to deal and transcend our quotidian trespasses in this base and mortal world.

I love the classics, but this one was not for me! I expected a traditional story.
