    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". Here, unabridged, and told with exceptional sensitivity and power by Anton Lesser, is the plight of Adam and Eve, the ambition and vengefulness of Satan and his cohorts.

    David says: "Great Epic Poem Narrated Well"
    "The narrator understands what he's reading"

    Where does Paradise Lost rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's particularly easy to enjoy the poem in audio format since one doesn't get sidetracked by archaic spellings, etc.


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

    I was very pleased with Anton Lesser's recording. There is a more highly rated recording available on Audible. I listened to the samples, and concluded that Lesser understood what he was reading. Listening to the entire poem confirmed that for me. Very well done!
