    A masterpiece of satire, this classic has entertained and enlightened readers the world over with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life from the vantage point of Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to "Our Father Below". At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original, C. S. Lewis gives us the correspondence of the worldly-wise old devil to his nephew Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man. The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging and humorous account of temptation - and triumph over it - ever written.

    James says: "This is the Best Audio Screwtape, a Masterpiece"
    "Wonderfully imagined and well read"

    What made the experience of listening to The Screwtape Letters the most enjoyable?

    The subtle amusement of Lewis's exposition


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Screwtape Letters?

    The very beginning of the last letter.


    Have you listened to any of Joss Ackland’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have seen him perform, but never heard him read before. He has a wonderful voice to express the chief character. He plays villains extremely well.


    If you could rename The Screwtape Letters, what would you call it?

    How to Tempt Into Evil.


    Any additional comments?

    This is an old book from the 1940's and some of it is clearly dated, but both enjoyable and instructive nonetheless.
