    DescriptionA brilliant reading from the novel by one of the wittiest commentators and literary figures of this century. "Antony Burgess reads chapters of his novel A Clockwork Orange" with hair-raising drive and energy. Although it is a fantasy set in an Orwellian future, this is anything but a bedtime story."-- "New York Times"

    Review quote
    A terrifying and marvelous book. --Roald Dahl"
    Review text
    Foremost in the genre, this novel uses difficult and disorientating language - Burgess's own invented teenage argot of Nadsat - to relate a story of extreme violence and moral anarchy. Four thugs run riot, until their leader, Alex, is caught, jailed and an attempt made to reform him by methods as depraved as his own. A brilliant and terrifying examination of the nature of good and evil. This was made into a controversial film by Stanley Kubrick in 1971. (Kirkus UK)
