Deep! Very intriuguing!!! Wonderful Listen!
What did you love best about The Screwtape Letters?
It really made me think about my life and reflect... I love the dark perspective that it has because it makes you think of things in a completely different way...
Who was your favorite character and why?
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It changed my whole way of thinking about sin...

This is the Best Audio Screwtape, a Masterpiece
Any additional comments?
I've got the wonderful (no longer available) John Cleese recording of The Screwtape Letters, as well as the Ralph Cosham version, also very good. But this performance is the best; it's beyond expectation and it might now be my favorite audio book. Ackland's voice is calmer and less cheeky than Cleese, but with much more gravitas.
Now, the case could be made that Cleese's less dignifiied Screwtape gives us a better laugh at the devil and thereby gives us a truer picture of the Underworld's ultimate loss of dignity. But for listening pleasure, which is an aid to absorption, this heavier reading is perfect. Very highly recommended.
