  1. I wonder: did the writer of the letter to Ebert actually read the Screwtape Letters? Sure, Lewis is writing from the point of view of demons, but “protagonist” and “good guy” aren’t synonomous. I feel pretty confident in saying that the whole point of the book is to expose the devil’s workings, the better to resist him. In other words, it’s a satire.

    That said, I’ve haven’t seen The Golden Compass, and probably won’t (not for religious reasons–I just don’t like fantasy), so I can’t comment on the rest of the letter.
