I would listen again. One, because it's necessary to understand everything that Milton is trying to say and two, it's very interesting. It makes you think about Christianity from multiple angles which takes you down trails of thought that you may have never ventured before.
Mr Griffon's performance was great. I couldn't ask for more than he delivered in this audio.
You could not take this all in one sitting. Unless you're very comfortable with Olde English and very versed in all the literary references. I am/was not. It would have taken me over 48 hours straight.
Gets sleepy at times. Easy to get lost in the language and references. Be prepared to rewind alot. Also helpfull to have some sort of study guide to reference while listening.
This is a unique opportunity to read a first-hand account of what went on.
One Day In the Life of Ivan Denisovich is a similar book I found more interesting. You get a first-hand account of a Russian Goulag. I think that was a better read. The author goes into exceptional detail placing you there along with him.
I was a little disappointed in the book. I felt Elie Wiesel had a real opportunity to share much more than he did. I think it took a lot of courage to write what he did, but the book comes off a bit shallow to me. He almost speaks of the events he went through as though he’s giving a play by play account of his ordeal. I wish he had provided more insight to his feelings toward religion, his fellow man, his survival instincts, his ethics, morals. I suspect, if you were to go through something such as Mr Wiesel did, you would question and analyze everything you believed. He opened up a little bit, but I wanted to know much more. You can now get very good accounts of what happened on cable.
