The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis

The Screwtape Letters - C.S. Lewis

This book was not for me. I found it very difficult to get through the dry writing. The "story" was dull from beginning to end. And if I wasn't bored whilst reading, I was shaking my head in disagreement. It's a shame, too, because I thought the premise of this book was fascinating. I wanted to read from the "Devil's" perspective. But all I got was a bunch of rules that you should or shouldn't do in order to be a good or bad Christian. It just... was bland. The only thing I enjoyed was the jab at schools and teachers and how they have no interest in teaching people who want to be taught.


I can see why this is an important text and I can also admit that Lewis is a very intelligent man. However, I just couldn't connect with this book to actually get anything from it.
