Book Review

Great Music, it said, and Great Poetry would like quieten Modern Youth down and make Modern Youth more Civilized. Civilized my syphilised yarbles.
A vicious fifteen-year-old droog is the central character of this 1963 classic. In Anthony Burgess's nightmare vision of the future, where the criminals take over after dark, the story is told by the central character, Alex, who talks in a brutal invented slang that brilliantly renders his and his friends' social pathology. A Clockwork Orange is a frightening fable about good and evil, and the meaning of human freedom. When the state undertakes to reform Alex to "redeem" him, the novel asks, "At what cost?" This edition includes the controversial last chapter not published in the first edition and Burgess's introduction "A Clockwork Orange Resucked."

    There's no question, Clockwork is one of the best modern books today. It has an amazing story and the rare ability to make the reader connect with and root for an ultra-violent, murdering rapist. A must read for anyone who enjoys modern, more political literature. And all that cal.
  • Truly amazing book

    This book is phenomenal. I finished it in 1 day! I highly recommend it for people 14 and up, the reason being some of the themes are inappropriate and there's a lot of Russian slang that not everyone can piece together what it means. Awesome book!!!

    Amazing story. If you've seen the movie and loved it, read the book and realize the movie does this story very little justice.
