Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fifteen-year-old Alex doesn't just like ultra-violence - he also enjoys
rape, drugs and Beethoven's Ninth. He and his gang rampage through a dystopian
future, hunting for terrible thrills. But when Alex finds himself at the
mercy of the state and subject to the ministrations of Dr Brodsky, the
government psychologist, he discovers that fun is no longer the order of
the day...

Synopsis:

In Burgess's infamous nightmare vision of youth culture in revolt, 15-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?

Richard Alsen, March 20, 2008 (view all comments by Richard Alsen)
