A Clockwork Orange

by Anthony Burgess - £7.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780241951446 | ISBN 10: 0241951445

'What we were after was lashings of ultraviolence'
 
In this nightmare vision of youth in revolt, fifteen-year-old Alex and his friends set out on a diabolical orgy of robbery, rape, torture and murder. Alex is jailed for his teenage delinquency and the State tries to reform him - but at what cost?
 
Social prophecy? Black comedy? Study of freewill? A Clockwork Orange is all of these. It is also a dazzling experiment in language, as Burgess creates a new language - 'nadsat', the teenage slang of a not-too-distant future.
