    Aeryion: The sub-culture of designer drug use and it's effect on the gritty society within Rubicon call back to A Clockwork Orange like an anesthetized echo. The prevalent use and abuse of the potent designer neurocotic Synth and the language (Illuminese) that the addicts speak amongst themselves is a brilliant homage to Burgess's original genius! This story gave me shivers as I read through the vivid hallucinatory narrative. A must read for every fan of the genre!… (mais)

A classic but an acquired taste. ( )
  Jimbookbuff1963 | Jun 5, 2021 |
Excellent book. But I agree with the American editor who did not publish the last chapter for the US version. I like the ending of the penultimate chapter where the reader is left wondering what is worse the cure or the natural state. In the version I read (published by Easton Press) the original last chapter that was published everywhere else (UK and the world) portrays the The Humble Narrator to be redeemed to some extent. For me, that limits my imagination and the ability of the reader to bring something to the book themselves. Still, this is a great read. The first third of the book I found particularly difficult to read because of the violence. The middle third was interesting from the point of view of how the treatment is perceived by The Humble Narrator. The last third is interesting how everything comes back to roost for The Humble Narrator. Is he redeemed? Is it necessary to be able to choose between good and evil in order to be a moral person? Is someone who is hardwired for evil (or for good) amoral? And what is the limits of the state in keeping its citizens safe (or rather in line with state expectations of behaviour)?

Interesting questions. ( )

A skorry review I will write, O my brothers.

Alex, our main protagonist, and his fellow droogs are a menacing group of molodoy hooligans who go around crasting whatever they can get their hands on, tolchocking chellovecks and starry aged vecks and doing the ultra-violence on young ptitsas unfortunate enough to be in their destructive path.

Your gulliver may spin rapidly trying to read all the foreign slovos that will be thrown your way when you first begin to read this fantastically dark and dreary classic. Keep your glazzies on the prize O my brothers, for the story is amazing and thought-provoking.

Grab yourself a nice cold glass of moloko, some mounch to chew on, and strap yourself in for an awesome read! ( )

A very violent and wondrous piece of work about a boy's joy of hostility and the government's idea of reformation. There are elements of coming of age, dystopia, and speculative fiction. The story is ultimately about maturation. It is written in a slang, which can be difficult to read. To me, you can get the jist of what is happening, and the slang helps give the story and characters uniqueness. There is a total of 21 chapters, although some books only come with 20 chapters. I highly recommend getting the 21 chapter versions as the last chapter does help support the theme of the book. ( )

I read this as a teenager, 72 is purely a guess -- it might have been earlier, but I don't remember. What I do remember is being overwhelmed with the nadsat glossery in the back. My good buddy, Tom Meinskow, had read it as well and we used the language a bit.

It's so interesting to me that the methodologies used in the book to 'tame' Alex of his violence were used in the 80's to try to cure homosexuals of their inclination. I don't know if that's life imitating art or if Burgess was describing something that was already happening.

Having him bereft of both violent urges and his beloved Beethovan said something to me about the complex nature of human desires. Sure, Alex was a creep -- but he was a product of his society. And the society's violence to him was even more vile. ( )

Mr. Burgess, whenever we remeet him in a literary setting, seems to be standing kneedeep in the shavings of new methods, grimed with the metallic filings of bright ideas. A Clockwork Orange, for example, was a book which no one could take seriously for what was supposed to happen in it-its plot and "meaning" were the merest pretenses-but which contained a number of lively notions, as when his delinquents use Russian slang and become murderous on Mozart and Beethoven. In a work by Burgess nothing is connected necessarily or organically with anything else but is strung together with wires and pulleys as we go.

Burgess’s 1962 novel is set in a vaguely Socialist future (roughly, the late seventies or early eighties)—a dreary, routinized England that roving gangs of teenage thugs terrorize at night. In perceiving the amoral destructive potential of youth gangs, Burgess’s ironic fable differs from Orwell’s 1984 in a way that already seems prophetically accurate. The novel is narrated by the leader of one of these gangs-—Alex, a conscienceless schoolboy sadist—and, in a witty, extraordinarily sustained literary conceit, narrated in his own slang (Nadsat, the teenagers’ special dialect). The book is a fast read; Burgess, a composer turned novelist, has an ebullient, musical sense of language, and you pick up the meanings of the strange words as the prose rhythms speed you along.

A Clockwork Orange, the book for which Burgess — to his understandable dismay — is best known. A handy transitional primer for anyone learning Russian, in other respects it is a bit thin. Burgess makes a good ethical point when he says that the state has no right to extirpate the impulse towards violence. But it is hard to see why he is so determined to link the impulse towards violence with the aesthetic impulse, unless he suffers, as so many other writers do, from the delusion that the arts are really rather a dangerous occupation. Presumably the connection in the hero’s head between mayhem and music was what led Stanley Kubrick to find the text such an inspiration. Hence the world was regaled with profound images of Malcolm McDowell jumping up and down on people’s chests to the accompaniment of an invisible orchestra.

It is a moot point whether Burgess is saying much about human psychology when he so connects the destructive element with the creative impulse. What is certain is that he is not saying much about politics. Nothing in A Clockwork Orange is very fully worked out. There is only half a paragraph of blurred hints to tell you why the young marauders speak a mixture of English and Russian. Has Britain been invaded recently? Apparently not. Something called ‘propaganda’, presumably of the left-wing variety, is vaguely gestured towards as being responsible for this hybrid speech. But even when we leave the possible causes aside, and just examine the language itself, how could so basic a word as ‘thing’ have been replaced by the Russian word without other, equally basic, words being replaced as well?
adicionado por SnootyBaronet | editarNew York Review of Books, Clive James
But all in all, “A Clockwork Orange” is a tour-de-force in nastiness, an inventive primer in total violence, a savage satire on the distortions of the single and collective minds.
In A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgess has written what looks like a nasty little shocker but is really that rare thing in English letters—a philosophical novel. The point may be overlooked because the hero, a teen-age monster, tells all about everything in nadsat, a weird argot that seems to be all his own. Nadsat is neither gibberish nor a Joycean exercise. It serves to put Alex where he belongs—half in and half out of the human race.

Goodness comes from within [...] Goodness is something chosen. When a man cannot choose he ceases to be a man.
Does God want goodness or the choice of goodness? Is a man who chooses to be bad perhaps in some way better than a man who has the good imposed upon him?
There is, in fact, not much point in writing a novel unless you can show the possibility of moral transformation, or an increase in wisdom, operating in your chief character or characters.
It's funny how the colors of the real world only seem really real when you watch them on a screen.
Then I noticed, in all my pain and sickness, what music it was that like crackled and boomed on the sound-track, and it was Ludwig van, the last movement of the Fifth Symphony, and I creeched like bezoomny at that. ‘Stop!’ I creeched. ‘Stop, you grahzny disgusting sods. It’s a sin, that’s what it is, a filthy unforgivable sin, you bratchnies!’
