Clockwork Orange (watch the movie instead)

by CBruns on Aug 28, 2010

I saw the movie pictures and review in Playboy magazine back when it first came out when I was young. I then saw the movie when I was much older and then wanted to read and see what differences there where in the two. The movie is basically the narration of the book except for the part with the body ... More

Leon337

the 21st chapter

by Leon337 on Apr 8, 2010

I read clockwork Orange years ago and loved the slang gang talk. What I was looking for here was the 21st chapter that was not in any of the U.S. published versions. For those who don't know, Burgess wrote the final chapter after there were reports of copycat gang violence said to be instigated by ... More

The story is powerful, perhaps ... More

Alissa

A magnificent book

by Alissa on Mar 7, 2009

A Clockwork Orange is a frightening and disturbing look at a world that does not yet exist, told by a narrator who speaks in a slang-filled voice. The book grabs hold of you on page one and does not let go. It is a magnificent book. I suppose it falls under the genre heading of dystopian literature ... More

Selina

Violent

by Selina on Oct 21, 2007

Burgess wrote this novel in the slang of the future. The author chose to use a lot of Roma(Gypsy) slang. The distinctive voice of Alex draws the reader in. Alex is cruel and extremely violent. Burgess also did a fine job of turning Alex into a victim. The book is better than the movie. The last chapter ... More
