    A classic probably a bit overrated book and one of the rare cases in which I would say that the movie is better than the book The most unnecessary thing was to add an extra chapter at the end that took the flow logic and atmosphere out of the whole thing Nice development of an own language but also not as cool as other examples The whole dystopic brainwashing idea is one of the best elements It reminds me of ma

What s it going to be then eh A linguistic adventure O my brothers I had seen the Kubrick film and so reading the novella was on the list I very much enjoyed it was surprised to learn that American publishers and Kubrick had omitted the crucial last chapter that provides some moral denouement to the ultra violenceAs disturbingly good as this is one aspect that always comes back to me is Burgess creation of and use of the Nadsat language This provides color and mystery to the narrative and it is noteworthy that Burgess intent was to soften the blow of the violent themes of the book 2018 addendum it is a testament to great literature that a reader recalls the work years later and this is a book about which I freuently think This is a book that for me at least is connected to the Stanley Kubrick film I don t always watch a movie after I ve read the book and when I do I usually draw a distinction between the two but these two works remain indelibly connected in my mind and recollection The most noteworthy contrast is the omission of the last chapter from the film Burgess ending provides a settling of accounts while Kubrick s vision leaves the viewer edgy and uncomfortable
