1. In which we start...
...and end of episode 1 is where this gal bails.
Superb writing, however the sly mediaeval subject matter of the devils v the gods is really not for me.

By writing of the daily Christian struggle to have Christlike love from the perspective of a demon coaching another on how to tempt, Lewis comes in under the radar of our pride. The book speaks to the struggle of mindset and attitude in even the smallest thing showing how they fit into the larger battle of our souls.
The two most helpful realizations for me were his contrasting genuine charity from self sacrifice and the selfish way we guard what we consider to be "our time"

C.S. Lewis presents the serious corruptions of the soul and church in a series of humorous letters between the mid-grade "Tempter" Screwtape and his apprentence "Tempter" Wormwood, schooling him on how best to win his "patient" over to their "Father Below".

Una via di mezzo tra romanzo, diario e saga familiare
Decisamente più interessante nella prima parte dove si affronta con maggiore introspezione la lingua utilizzata in un contesto familiare, con i suoi topoi noti solo agli altri congiunti.
Nella seconda parte è più di ampio respire sulla vita della nazione negli anni tra le due guerre e seguenti, ma con meno coinvolgimento.
