Master demon Screwtape, played by a marvelously diabolic Andy Serkis, can sound sympathetic, urbane, and ruthless (like the best of devils) all in a single breath when he offers a little advice to his nephew, Wormwood, regarding the temptation, persecution, and ultimate destruction of the human soul. In this clear and well-crafted dramatization of C.S. Lewis's 31 satirical letters, both story and moral journey are accentuated by the wonderful acting chemistry between Serkis, who voiced Gollum in THE LORD OF THE RINGS, and Bertie Carvel's deftly understated Wormwood. A superb supporting cast, sound effects, and music that re-creates the ambiance and gravitas of Lewis's war-torn 1940s England round out this intelligent production. This is audio theater at its best. B.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine

I have always loved the writings of C.S. Lewis and so I jumped to the opportunity to purchase this work. Andy Serkis is just a brilliant actor and the other actors play off each other very well. I think this work is very dark, as it should be as it highlights the work of Satan and his minions as they seek to distract and ultimately destroy the work and God who in their mind is seen as the enemy. You have to listen keenly as the twists and turns come and go. I caution letting children listen though. If so, parental discretion is recommended because it can get really eerie. However, this is a great work. Listening is easy both for voice and songs. Very nostalgic. Well done. Six stars if that were possible.
So worth the purchase. We listen while on our travels! and we were challenged by the "reverse thinking" of what constitutes good or evil.
We have listened multiple times and have reflected and conversed deeply.
from letter seven are haunting:
"The attitude which you want to guard against is that in which temporal affairs
are treated primarily as material for obedience. Once you have made the World an
end, and faith a means, you have almost won your man, and it makes very little
difference what kind of worldly end he is pursuing. Provided that meetings,
pamphlets, policies, movements, causes, and crusades, matter more to him than
prayers and sacraments and charity, he is ours - and the more "religious" (on
those terms) the more securely ours. I could show you a pretty cageful down
This explains so much confusion in the world today-
Add Andy Sirkis and Focus on the family and what you have is a tour de force presentation that the whole family can enjoy and be edified by. The sound is excellent as we have come to expect from focus on the family. The added dialogue is perfect, not overdone, but illustrative. It leaves C.S. Lewis' intentions fully in tact while adding another dimension of the experience with Uncle Screwtape.
In surprise to a few of the negative reviews of this excellent production and particularly to C.S. Lewis' letters themselves, Midwest Guy said "took 1000 words to say what can be said in 10" If you think you can say in 10 words what C.S. Lewis said in 1000, you are either some kind of genius or you have no idea what C.S. Lewis is saying.
This is an excellent production of the Screwtape Letters and more than worth the cost of admission.
