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.

    "Not a casual read."

    Very deep and much attention must be maintained to draw out the truths Lewis is conveying. Extremely good insight that can help all that learn these tactics of the devil and man's heart.

    "Convicting"
    Where does The Screwtape Letters rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Well, hard to say but it's right up there among the top 3.


    What other book might you compare The Screwtape Letters to and why?

    There is no book to compare to Screwtape. It's unique in its ability to entertain, convict and pierce my heart with stunned understanding.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The very end when Screwtape is doling out the rewards of the wicked.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    You'll never know how well the devil understands you.

    "A Must Listen"

    So well-written, humorous, scary. translate in perspective, it really makes you think about the motives behind your own behavior. Highly recommend! Couldn't give it 5 stars because after the first half of it, I struggled to listen because it was just too dark for me. But I'm a Pollyanna!

    "Excellent"

    C.S. Lewis is a masterful writer. This book is depicted from a perspective not often considered. It was fascinating and eye opening. I would recommend this book.
