I finished A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess yesterday. Great book and I enjoyed it, and unfortunately had definitely heard the story before. I guess that's the price of popularity everyone copies you, and you hear the story before you even read the book.
I did enjoy how he presented Alex as a character. By incorporating his slang and speech I felt like I was really listening to Alex tell me everything. Also, having to read that dialect made me really take my time with the book. Something I don't get to do very often.
Being considered a "classic" I was really waiting for the new perspective and lesson. Guess I had my hopes up that it would be another Anthem or Brave New World (or maybe I'm already bitter enough and couldn't trust the state any less than I do).
Next Step: Watch the Movie
Post Some Comments and We'll have a discussion on A Clockwork Orange!
