This is satire piece with the portrayal of the human life from the viewpoint of Screwtape, a senior tempter for “Our Father Below”. C.S. Lewis gives readers letters of correspondence from Screwtape to his newphew Wormwood who is a ‘novice’ demon in charge of securing the damnation of a young man.
The book was comical at times, but I really couldn’t get into it. I stated at book club that I felt like the story was similar to the movie “Monsters Inc.” where there is an underworld of schooling these ‘demons’ go to and then are thrown up into the world of humans to get their ‘scare meters’ up to 100!
