A Clockwork Orange  review

Author: Anthony Burgess
genre: Fantasy
Year: 1963
ISBN: 0393312836

A vicious fifteen-year-old "droog" is the central character of this 1963 classic, whose stark terror was captured in Stanley Kubrick's magnificent film of the same title.

In Anthony Burgess's nightmare vision of the future, where 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".

Anthony Burgess has wrote a book that takes you closer to a rebel teenager whose only aim is to bring chaos. And he brings it with his mates. It's frightening enough to read the books and to experience the main character's role. Nevertheless, the book for me is a classic written.
