2.0 out of 5 stars good book, horrible spelling June 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I made it to the middle of book two before I decided I would go to the library Monday and check this book out. The epic was very good so far, it's just that the kindle free edition is filled with a ridiculous amount of typos. I understand that lots of words were spelled differently back in the day, but this edition is riddled with obvious typos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant December 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First of all, this book is not easy to read but it IS worth the time and effort. Because it is actually a poem written as a book, there is difficulty reading it. Also, the language of Milton's time is quite different from our modern-day language. But if you can overcome these problems, you will find a brilliantly written poem/story that will keep you mesmerized especially if you know the general background of the story.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kindle e-book is a mediocre reading experience February 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This review focuses on the Kindle reading experience of this e-book, rather than on the literary merits of Milton's epic poem.

The Kindle experience is fairly mediocre.

The book is out of copyright and has been roughly scanned. The poor (non-existent?) post-scan editing of the e-book means it has plenty of typographical and formatting errors.

There is little point in offering very cheap classics if the quality is poor - as it is with every one of the cheap classics I have bought from Amazon (see all my reviews).

The poem is full of classical and biblical allusions. Some can be looked up in the kindle dictionary with one click, but most cannot. It would be a great help if the kindle came with an encyclopedia as well as a dictionary. Wikipedia is no substitute.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally got to read it February 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have heard of Paradise lost all the time. But I never got a chance to read it. I have to say its a lot better then what people said about it. Its really a great book and I think ever one who studies religion or is a religous person should read it

5.0 out of 5 stars Free Classic! November 21, 2013

It's a classic... and it's free! Although some of the language is difficult to navigate, the main gist of this epic poem still shines through.

3.0 out of 5 stars I Read It, but... February 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I now can say I have read this Classic book. I also can say that it just was not for me. I would like to have a teacher explain as I read because of when and how it was written is above my ability. It was only at the point of Eve eating the apple that I understood what was going. This is not a book for everyone just for enjoyment. Thank You Amazon for offering this book Free to be used on my Kindle Fire.
