Anthony Burgess – A Clockwork Orange

 

What’s it going to be then, eh? Well, my young droogs, if you’re anything like me then you’ve only heard of this novel because of the film adaptation by Stanley Kubrick. That said, I enjoyed the book far more than I enjoyed the film, probably because Burgess’ writing style is so gripping and believable.

This might not be for you if you’re not a fan of bad language, violence and dystopianism, but if that’s your thing then you’re going to love it – in many ways, it’s like the Catcher in the Rye for people who prefer their teenage anti-heroes to stop whining and to go out and do something about it. Overall, it’s well-worth a read if you’re a film fan or a lover of alternative literary fiction.
