I love C.S. Lewis, he is such a great writer and thinker! But, sometimes I’m just not in the mood to sit down and delve into one of his books. That was why I was so excited to learn that one of my favorite Lewis book was turning into an audio drama. Some books are just richer when they are read out loud and Screwtape Letters is one of those books.
Focus on the Family has an extensive repertoire of great audio dramas and so had a reputation to keep up. They have recently dramatized a fantastic drama of all seven books in The Chronicles of Narnia series, but i think they showed up everyone and even themselves with their production of “letters”. Granted, with Andy Serkis (Gollum in Lord of the Rings) playing Uncle Screwtape how can you possibly go wrong?
The actors’ voices are perfect for their respective roles, the sound quality and effects are well done. I would caution against listening to this drama while in the car, or with small children who might be frightened by loud and sudden noises.
One of the bonuses that i particularly enjoyed was a collection of 10 songs inspired by Screwtape Letters, this is the first time i have ever heard of anything like that included on the cds of a audio drama.
Also, be sure to check out the DVD that comes with this collector’s edition, it has some neat features!
On a side note, the visual artists did an amazing job on the cover and inside art, you can’t see what i’m talking about based on the cover above, but it’s awesome! 🙂
