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.

    Story
    "Amazing insight into the realm of Spiritual Warfare"

    Have you ever wondered why "Murphy's Law" seems to happen? Perhaps Murphy is actually a demon named Screwtape trying to draw or drag away from the Hand's of the Creator God. Just a thought.

    Story
    "A masterpiece"

    I'm no theologian or great thinker, so I can't comment in any way that seems weighty or impressive enough on this great work. Although I would recommend that you listen when you have no distractions: there is so much meat in every sentence that you'll miss so much if you focus on anything else! As I read every single chapter, I thought to myself that I must mark that particular one for the world-shaking epiphany it brought, but it kept happening, so I'll just recommend the whole book and undoubtedly listen again.
    A book written in the voice of a demon might be hard to imagine or believe, but Joss Ackland's performance is not only believable but delicious in its subtleties and inflections.

    "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.

    "Good Story"

    very interesting way of portraying the struggles of Good and evil from the Devils servants perspective. the story is presented in a very entertaining manner but with profound meaning and significance. if you struggle daily in your life with good and evil, this will be encitful and we'll worth listening too...well done.

    "Brillant"

    And eye opening. I've heard of the book for years and it sounded too scholarly. I should have read it years ago.
