The Screwtape Letters Reviews

    *slightly ashamed face and twisting of foot in the dirt*

    So I didn't actually finish this book. I was looking forward to reading it and it has been on my bookcrossing wishlist for a while but when it finally arrived I found that the anticipation had outweighed the the delivery of the end product to such an extent that I gave up. Shame on me? Well maybe.

    I read all the Narnia novels when I was a child and my parents never told me that it was all metaphorical, allegorical and many other -als for Ch

    Young Wormwood is on his very first demonic mission and is at a bit of a loss as to how to do this. There's so many ways to corrupt, but which is the right way to do evil?

    Indeed the safest road to Hell is the gradual one--the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts...

    Your affectionate uncle, Screwtape.
    Luckily, he has his Uncle Screwtape to consult. Under Screwtape's gentle guidance, Wormwood hopes to bring another soul to their Dark Fathe ...more

    Okay...so I've probably tried to read this book at least ten times over the years and never actually finished it. I started the book again this week and even tried the audio version by John Cleese on Youtube--didn't get very far as I kept thinking about Fawlty Towers, which I happened to have watched relatively recently, and therefore couldn't take him seriously as a devil.

    I'm now analysing what it is about this book that I don't like as I usually know straight away. I'm wondering if I'm not suf

    "THE SCREWTAPES LETTERS is a treasure of wisdom as it was penned to young Tempter Wormwood by his worldly-wise old devil of an uncle, Screwtape."



    It feels weird to review this classic. So, instead, I will simply reference a few quotes that made me go, "hmmmmm..."

    "When two humans have lived together for many years it usually happens that each has tones of voice and expressions of face which are almost unendurably irritating to the other... Let him assume that she knows how annoying it is and does

    I didn't particularly enjoy this book but am glad that I read it. In fact, at times the book made my skin crawl. For those who have not read it, the book is written as a bunch of letters from a tempter, Uncle Screwtape, to his nephew, a tempter in training, named Wormwoood. Screwtape tutors Wormwood on how to tempt the "patient" he is assigned. Through the letters, you are constantly reminded and made to think about how the adversary tempts us. What is poignant is that the cunning and evil plans ...more

  • El

    This book has probably one of the easiest premises around to understand: The senior devil, Screwtape, writes advise to a junior devil, his nephew, Wormwood. The letters are his advice to Wormwood how to prevent a human from reaching his full Christian capabilities, and to turn the human to their "side", as it were. Screwtape is one of the best villains in literature, and the epistolary format of this book helps to see the world through the demon's eyes.

    Apparently C.S. Lewis had a hard time writi

    It's always the books that I randomly come across or the spur of the moment reads that almost always end up (pleasantly) surprising me.

    This book was so out of my range and certainly not the kind I usually pick up but I wanted something different and wow, was it that. It was thought-provoking (and very unnerving at times) with an interesting premise that had me questioning a lot of the things that we do without even realising and the effects of these actions.

    You know, there are many reasons why I

    I don't know how many times I have read this, but the last time was listening to it on audio in May of 2015. Crammed with wisdom.
