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.

This is a good crazy book.

The Screwtape Letters are an excellent look at what could be happening in the dark world. It will make you look at your struggles and think to how you can overcome them. Some of the letters are a little jacked up to say the least but WOW, such an insight.

Joss Ackland is perfection!

The voice! The inflection! Enough creepy to remember what is writing the letters, but not so much to over shadow the content and distract.
And the content! Mr. Lewis said it was difficult to write as Screwtape, but I'm glad he persevered! This reversed view does make one ponder and remember "we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places." (Eph 6:12 NKJV)

Best way to see the war.

This book is tell what it really means when the bible says we battle not against Flesh and Blood. If you want to understand what the struggle for your soul means and looks like this will do it.

Such a great reader and a new addition I hadn’t read previously

The reader is fantastic.

I had never heard of Screwtape’s toast which was apparently addended to this book by CSL himself after being begged for more.

Great read!
