The Screwtape Letters Audiobook

The Screwtape Letters

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.

    "excellent book, very eye opening."

    an easy read, but quite creepy. this book is certainly something that even experienced Christians should read. it affords a different perspective, with advice that is extremely applicable to every individual's daily life.

    "C. S. Lewis is a master of his art"

    As a big fan of C. S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters does not disappoint. C. S. Lewis has an amazing way of painting pictures as you read (or listen). The Screwtape Letters is very deep and definitely requires more than one time through. The reverse perspective of a demon talking about the things of earth is a very interesting point of view to be put in. Joss Ackland does a wonderful job narrating.

    "Classic"

    I've had this one on my list for some time. I finally listened and was not disappointed. I'm not sure I could ever read the book after listening. Ackland did an excellent job narrating. His voice has a very dark, creepy quality to it. I could clearly picture both the writer and reader of the letters.

    "Good Story"

    very interesting way of portraying the struggles of Good and evil from the Devils servants perspective. the story is presented in a very entertaining manner but with profound meaning and significance. if you struggle daily in your life with good and evil, this will be encitful and we'll worth listening too...well done.

    "Brillant"

    And eye opening. I've heard of the book for years and it sounded too scholarly. I should have read it years ago.

    Absolutely wonderful, Joss Ackland's narration of this book was truly rivetting and occasionally spine chilling.

    "Performance, not just reading"

    After listening to this- it seems as though I hadn't read it before, or like I was reading it again... I had new insights, because of the way it was read! (Really, I can't the reader justice- listen for yourself!)

    The book is amazing- a must-read for all humans!

    "Brilliant performance"

    This is one of my favorite books of all time and I've read it five or six time before, but I could have never imagined such a diabolically convincing voice for screwtape. Fanfriggintastic!
