The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis


5 of 5 stars  *****

The eloquence of C.S. Lewis turns the letters of Screwtape, a demonic entity expert in the art of temptation, into an introspective lesson for an individual lucky enough to read this, one of the author's last writings. The format provides Lewis with opportunity to touch upon many subjects that are in debate still today. 
I see the political philosophy of Ayn Rand in the quote,(view spoiler) Listening to this Audiobook is a real pleasure. The book has the advantage of looking up the profound observations presented in such an entertaining way by this master penman and wordsmith.
