Hi friends, today I want to share my review of “The Screwtape Letters” by: C.S Lewis.
This book is about letters that Screwtape sends to Wormtail his nephew. So for a bit of context “Screwtape” is one of the Devil's subordinates and “Wormtail” is Screwtape’s subordinates who happens to be Screwtape’s nephew.
The Main Storyline
So the storyline of this book is like this. Wormtail is tasked by Screwtape to handle a client (In this case a client is a human individual, that the devil's subordinates are trying to influence him with bad things), and the content of this book is the letters that Screwtape sends in order to help Wormtail with this job of influencing humans.
My Opinions And Feelings On The Book
In my opinion, this book has a really unique reading experience than other books because C.S Lewis makes us the reader like spies looking through the enemies' documents, and through this experience, I think C.S Lewis tells us to dodge and even fight back the enemies strategies and attacks. In this case, the enemy is the Devil and his subordinates. Ohh yeah, I forgot to mention that the content of the book is all about Christianity and religion.
So yeah like I said earlier C.S Lewis provides a different and unique reading experience and personally I really like that because it’s different than others.
The second thing I to share is the insights and knowledge that I got from this book, this book is I think a “Christian” book but it doesn’t mean that this book can be only read by “Christian” and so the insight that I got from this book is all about God the devil and religion.
For me, as a Christian, this book has really touched my and this book has also influenced me in my daily life because there are some lessons here that are really connected to the bible and God, and I think these kinds of information really resonates with me and my life.
I also like how C.S Lewis shows emotion in the letters that Screwtape sends to Wormtail and on the characters themselves. In some of the letters you can see that Screwtape is angry because Wormtail is not doing good enough and many other occasions.
In part of the different reading experience that C.S Lewis provides is the structure of the book itself, the book has a chapter by chapter structure so you are like reading individual letters compiled in a book which is really nice in my opinion.
But there some things that I think are a little bit of like at one chapter the letter sometimes has parts that are too “wordy “ and sometimes too boring, but overall it’s an awesome book.
So yeah those are my feelings on the book.
I would most definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to read it, either you are Christian or not I think this book is at least a try because you will get many insights from it.
That is my review on “The Screwtape Letters” by: C.S Lewis I hope this piece of writing may be beneficial and informative for you and oh definitely let me know in the comments on what do I need to improve or what do you think about this book.
