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.

    "Old school love"

    Perfect example of why the classics cannot be topped. Makes you think long, hard and intently at the wiles of the enemy and our part in his advancements and God's victories.

    Story
    "Chillingly powerful."

    Lord have mercy on us. This allegorical story of a junior tempter being guided by his senior temper uncle through a series of letters, is sure to touch the heart. The gifted insight of Mr. Lewis transports the audience into the underworld to bring clarity to the workings of demons on their quest to devour souls for their own gluttonous hunger. Though he explicitly states that this is a work of fiction and should not be taken as gospel truth, there are, I believe, truths in his writing. I firmly believe that demons work in very similar was to the ones mentioned in this book, though most likely not entirely as written.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking to deepen their understanding of the spiritual battles that rage among us unknowing mortals and who desire to live in the camp of the "enemy" (God as he is described in the book). This book, though chilling as I described, it written in such a light-hearted way as to not be frightening. Highly recommended.

    "Excellent performance by Joss Ackland."

    Riveting performance, the voice and the content of the book were a perfect blend. Added a dramatization to an otherwise laborious listening experience.

    "Great book & a great reader!"

    I loved the book. Lewis does a great job of unveiling things that Christians experience and puts it into perspective on how demons use our thoughts and understanding to mislead us and make us ignorant of them and proud of our own choices.

    The reader is pretty amazing. I really felt like I was being read a letter by the author himself!
