A Clockwork Orange

A Clockwork Orange is by Anthony Burgess. The must read creepy classic tale of a vicious fifteen-year-old criminal. When Alex and his group of followers kill an elderly woman, he is sentenced to prison. Once there he agrees to undergo a new experimental treatment to "cure" criminals forever - but at what cost? The book is written in unconventional slang that at times makes reading a bit slow. It is however, a frightening look at a possible future. A Reader's Corner Highly Recommended book. An amazing work of dystopian science fiction.

Ratings: 11th grade - 9 out of 10 - P (profanity) - V (violence) - AC (mature thematic content).
