This version of Paradise Lost offers the reader an opportunity to read the author's incredible sentences and engaging language without the headache of dissecting what he's trying to say. This is a brilliant English classic and now it's accessible to us all. Highly recommended to students studying in need of some extra help.
The main thing I dislike about this version, is that is shouldn't have been too hard to put the original and modern translation on facing pages, rather than sometimes having the modern translation on the opposite side of the same sheet. I realize what BookCaps probably did was take the kindle version and just convert it to paperback without a thought to aligning the text on two side-by-side facing pages (which would be pointless in the kindle edition). It just seems like if you go through the trouble of making this modernized translation, you could take a day to re-align the pages for the paperback, so it wasn't so clumsy to compare lines toward the middle or end of a section.
However, I have encountered severe technical problems with the book on my Kindle, problems not shared by any other book I've bought. The book has a very long load time each time I start reading it, and sometimes it ends up crashing the Kindle. After the machine reboots, the the long load needs to be repeated if I want to resume reading.

Good effort, but nothing beats the original text with footnotes.
It simply is not Milton's prose. It's flat, dull, and lifeless. Read more
