    C.S. Lewis: The Screwtape Letters (John Cleese, unabridged)
    The Book
    Book Description
    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.
    The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
    Epistolary novel by C.S. Lewis, published serially in 1941 in Guardian, a weekly religious newspaper. The episodes were collected in book form in 1942 and revised as 硕he Screwtape Letters` and 碨crewtape Proposes` a Toast in 1961. Written in defense of Christian faith, this popular satire consists of a series of 31 letters in which Screwtape, an experienced devil, instructs his young charge, Wormwood, in the art of temptation. Confounded by church doctrines and a faithful Christian woman, their efforts are defeated when their subject--a World War II pilot--dies in a bombing raid with his soul at peace. Through his satiric use of the demonic narrative persona, Lewis examines the opposing sides in the battle between good and evil.
    Audiobook Review
    This adaptation of C.S. Lewis s biting satire received a 1999 Grammy nomination for best spoken-word performance, and it s easy to see why--the story fits the format perfectly. It s relatively brief (the unabridged reading takes a mere four hours), and contains only one character--the demon Screwtape, who writes letters to his novice nephew Wormwood, instructing him on how to best tempt his patient (a wayward soul on earth) into the bosom of our Lord below.
    Obviously, the book wasn t written with former Monty Python John Cleese in mind, but it s hard to imagine a better Screwtape. Cleese s voice provides the perfect vehicle for Lewis s dry, razor-edged wit. His uncanny comic timing and ability to milk each phrase for maximum effect betray an infectious enthusiasm for the story. It s clear that he s having a great time reading, and it s impossible not to laugh along with him. This inspired pairing of two of the 20th century s greatest wits makes for a meditation on the dark side of spiritual guidance that s as relevant and funny today as it was in Lewis s war-torn England.
