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 Narrator, Even More Excellent Author"

    This book may have become my new favorite. It is incredibly insightful. And narrative written through letters that imagines the spiritual warfare that exists all around us. It is a good book for all, not just those of faith. It will challenge your assumptions of goodness in everyday life.

    "Amazing."

    Entirely not what I expected. Story was amazing, and there's a lot of timeless insight from CS Lewis.

    The performance was amazing- I don't know if that's just hie the guy talks or what, but it worked perfectly. (Only does the one voice of Screw tape the demon.)

    The only thing I don't like is that I had to spend a full credit on a 3 Hour story... I tend to go for longer ones to keep myself occupied as long as possible..

    " The spiritual human condition "

    CS Lewis has one if not the most accurate depiction of man's struggle with adversity and the powers behind it. in addition on of the most insightful perspectives on the plan of destruction laid out for mankind. brilliant.

    "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.
