Publisher's Summary

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.

    "I'll be reading this MANY more times"

    The reader has a fantastic voice for this Lewis classic, but I do think this book would be better read than listened to. Lewis is just too rich and thought-provoking. I needed more time to process his writing. That being said, I'm sure I will listen over and over at different points in my life because there will always be something to take away.

    "devilishly wonderful"

    the narrator did a very good job at portraying his character, and the fact that there was no true chronology made the story a puzzle to figure out

    "Strong Writing"

    Almost didn't finish it. For me it was very unsettling. Probably because it brings up too many truths. And maybe that's the way it should be.

    "A must read for all Christians"

    It is amazing how relevant this is for today and that C.S. Lewis wrote this in the 1940s

    My only regret is not reading this sooner in my life.

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

    I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. The content is interesting. Joss Ackland's performance is spot on! This is not a book you can halfway listen to and enjoy. It wants your full attention, but it is worth it! It seems to me very different from CS Lewis' other books. I was completely engaged and entertained. Enjoy!
