Journal Entry 3 by wingGoryDetailswing at Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Friday, October 26, 2018
The Big Box O' Books arrived safely today - many thanks! I'll try to find lots of different places to release these, so that your books might report back from several different towns and states.

I really love Lewis' nifty little experiment in the devils'-eye-view of temptation, and was happy to have another release copy. The book (which is dedicated to J. R. R. Tolkien, a friend of Lewis') is a wonderfully clever series of letters from a senior devil to his nephew, who's apparently having trouble snaring his first soul. It's amusing, chilling, and thought-provoking, and well worth reading. (I've read that, when "Screwtape" first came out, some readers missed the point entirely and complained that this was a very dangerous book that incited people to sin...)

I've also heard this on audiotape, as read by John Cleese - he's got the perfect voice for it - and, more recently, I found another audio version on, read by Joss Ackland, who's also very good (and a bit more sinister).

[There's an entertaining TV Tropes page for the book as well.]
