    A Clockwork Orange is one of those books which everyone has heard of but which few people have actually read mostly, I think, because it is preceded by a reputation of shocking ultra violence I m not going to deny here that the book contains violence It features lengthy descriptions of heinous crimes, and they re vivid descriptions, full of excitement Burgess later wrote i

    How to review an infamous book about which so much has already been said By avoiding reading others thoughts until I ve written mine.There are horrors in this book, but there is beauty too, and so much to think about The ends of the book justify the means of its execution, even if the same is not true of what happens in the story.Book vs Film, and Omission of Final ChapterI saw t

    What s it going to be then, eh A linguistic adventure, O my brothers I had seen the Kubrick film and so reading the novella was on the list I very much enjoyed it, was surprised to learn that American publishers and Kubrick had omitted the crucial last chapter that provides some moral denouement to the ultra violence.As disturbingly good as this is, one aspect that always comes back to

    In 1960 Anthony Burgess was 43 and had written 4 novels and had a proper job teaching in the British Colonial Service in Malaya and Brunei Then he had a collapse and the story gets complicated But I like the first cool version AB told, which was that he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour and given a year to live Since as you know he lived a further 33 years, we may conclude the do

    A classic, probably a bit overrated book and one of the rare cases in which I would say that the movie is better than the book The most unnecessary thing was to add an extra chapter at the end that took the flow, logic, and atmosphere out of the whole thing Nice development of an own language, but also not as cool as other examples The whole dystopic brainwashing idea is one of the best elements It remi

    Rebellion can take on many forms and in A Clockwork Orange it takes on the form of language the spoken word All societies have their constraints, though breaking through them is often difficult What the poor disaffected youth do here is create their own system of communication that is so utterly theirs. Every word carries history, and by destroying such words the youngster are proposing a break from traditi

    This book was sweet The way russian was used to show the distopian future was one of the coolest literary devices I have seen Because I was so enthralled by it, I often read parts than once to make sure I was getting the meaning right Everyone should read this book, and then read it again to make sure they got it.

    Like many I suppose, I saw Kubrick s film long ago without having read the book until now Part punk rock version of Finnegans Wake, part scalding criticism of UK society in the 50s, Burgess dystopian Center is a real horrorshow in a non ACO interpretation of the word of violence Alex is a terrifying character every bit as evil as the Joker or Anton Chigurh whose state sponsored brainwashing is equally disturbing The pris
