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.

    "Amazing performance"

    This was one of the best voices for the character Screwtape. The story itself is great even if you aren't religious.

    "Entertaining and Edifying"

    If I didn't know better, I would swear this was a contemporary (recent) work. Such a timeless book. I have read it before and heard another audio version. This one was entertaining and a joy to listen to.

    "Wonderfully read! Highly recommended."

    Wonderfully read! Highly recommended. The reader has a wonderful tone and cadences a brings the devilish advice alive. Glad that it includes the "toast" at the end.

    "Insightful genius!"

    Creative, insightful presentation of Christian thought, obtusely presented by a demon instructing an underling. Narrated excellently by Joss Ackland with both style and understanding.
