    Milton was right when he says that there is no greater epic than that of the creation and salvation of man. Reading Paradise Lost I am more than informed, I am there to witness the greatest events of history.

    A lovely work of literature but not as intellectually stimulating as I had expected

    Intellectual, mentally stimulating, challenging, and beyond all interesting. A different view on a popular subject within religion. Not many Christians ever enlighten each other on the past of Lucifer, most try not to talk about him at all. This book portrays the infamous fallen angel with human emotion, thought, and foolishness unlike the monster attributes usually associated with the prince of darkness. Paradise lost provides enlightenment spiritually, since it arrives at the root of all evil, and allows the reader to understand the reason behind the vices of men.
