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.

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.
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.
Joss Ackland did a fantastic job narrating this book. He had the perfect voice for Screwtape.
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.
Southern IT guy that is a christian and loves scifi. I hated all the reading in school, found out later in life that I love being read to.
One if my favorite books. Good to change my perspective of life. If you have read it it, get it.
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!
Lover of all things Homesteading, Mystery Novels and "great" cup of Tea&Coffee. Faith, Family and Fun keep this mama of three busy!
Yes, This book really gets you thinking about how the spiritual world works around us and in our lives. After reading it I find some of these "traps" coming to the front of my mind more often, helping me to over come these thing before it happens.
The book starts out a little weird and was difficult to follow at first.
This book provides a very insightful view into the weaknesses and failings of human nature. Although written in the 1940s it is relevant for the 21st century. While the specifics may have changed, human nature has not since the beginning of creation.
