    Often considered the greatest epic in any modern language, Paradise Lost tells the story of the revolt of Satan, his banishment from Heaven, and the ensuing fall of Man with his expulsion from Eden. It is a tale of immense drama and excitement, of innocence pitted against corruption, of rebellion and treachery, in which God and Satan fight a bitter battle for control of mankind's destiny. The struggle ranges across heaven, hell, and earth, as Satan and his band of rebel angels conspire against God.

    What disappointed you about Paradise Lost?

    The flat, expressionless delivery by narrator Frederick Davidson ruins this beloved classic by making it a string of meaningless words, impossible to follow. A terrible disappointment.

    When Hamish Macbeth, local constable of the Scottish village of Lochdubh, tries to break up one of the many fights involving Randy "Macho Man" Duggan, the ruffian challenges him to a fistfight. Everyone expects Macbeth to take a beating from the man who claims to be a professional wrestler, but on the chosen day, Duggan is found shot to death - and Macbeth is the likeliest suspect. The brutal Macho Man left a trail of fear and hatred in his wake, and Macbeth must find the murderer and clear his name.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Hamish, and enjoy listening and re-listening to these stories.


    How could the performance have been better?

    This is the first book I've listened to with this narrator, and his is neither the voice nor the accent to replace Mr. Malcolm as narrator. His reading lacks good phrasing and the rhythm and word stresses are often wrong, distracting from the story.
