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.

Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
In 1942 this could have been a "How to not let people manipulate you". "We've come a long way baby", good and bad. Screwtape is teaching his minion, Wormwood, in letters, all the different ways to play on the weaknesses of we mere humans. Funny satirical? mmmm, you decide.
I tried several times to listen to this book but it was totally confusing
I don't know if he could
just wish I wouldn't of bought it
