One Devil Review and GIVEAWAY

April 4, 2012

ANNOUNCEMENT: Learn how you can WIN a copy of As One Devil to Another just after the review in today’s post!

Review of As One Devil to Another:

What do you do when you come up with an idea inspired by a devil? If you are Richard Platt you might just write it down and see what the results are. Such is what almost happen to him when one day he started thinking about what Screwtape, or a demon like him, might say if he were writing letters to another junior tempter. It only seems appropriate that a book like As One Devil to Another would come out the same year as the seventieth anniversary of C.S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters, as the book cover notes its written in the same spirit of that classic book.

Does Platt succeed in making his letters worthy of comparison to Lewis? Yes! Here’s a key reason why: Platt doesn’t try to make correspondence too modern. He avoids dealing with too many contemporary issues to hit universal subjects everyone can identify with in the book. While the “patient” in the book is revealed to be a female graduate student, Platt doesn’t weigh too heavy on issues exclusive to either category. As Platt noted in an interview I had with him, he focused on “principle and application” when writing his letters. Thus, themes such as pride, romance, suffering, nature, chance, truth and humility (among others) are explored.
