After reading 4 or 5 books back to back that were YA, I had the itch to get my hands on something a little more mentally stimulating. That's not to say that YA isn't fantastic, it is, especially given that it allows you to escape into a different world. I just wanted something a little more to marinate in.
That being said, The Screwtape Letters isn't a
book that will take you on a vacation in your mind (at least it didn't
for me), however it was a really interesting read. It was truly
enlightening for the most part. I'm not one for highlighting, but I
highlighted the crap out of this book. There are many things that I'll
definitely want to revisit.
