A Clockwork Orange

A Clockwork Orange - Anthony Burgess, Tom Hollander Over the years, I've tried to actually read A Clockwork Orange, but the invented language always threw me. I just couldn't get into it at all. Then, my son introduced me to this audio version - It Was Amazing! The reader does such an excellent job bringing it to life, the listener has no trouble, whatsoever, following the story even though so much of the vocabulary is made up. I highly recommend this audio version.

This book isn't on my top ten list of favorite reads, but it is on my list of most amazing reads. It is highly disturbing and shocking.
