A clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess

8 years, 4 months ago at Nov 1 20:06
Put this book off for to long as I thought the slang would make it a pain to read. Turns out most of it is anglicized Russian and even my, very, basic grasp on that language allowed me to read it with ease. It's a classic, but we all kinda know that.

"10 Days. Despite being the shortest novel on this list the unfamiliar phrases and words made it difficult to get into much. But still, it was a good story. "

" “They don't go into what is the cause of goodness, so why of the other shop? If lewdies are good that's because they like it, and I wouldn't ever interfere with their pleasures, and so of the other shop. And I was patronizing the other shop. More, badness is of the self, the one, the you or me on our oddy knockies, and that self is made by old Bog or God and is his great pride and radosty. But the not-self cannot have the bad, meaning they of the government and the judges and the schools cann"

"I have read once After you get past the strange nadsat language, it is so AMAZING. WOW great story, it really got interesting to me when Alex went to prison and then it was great. And I have to say I like the novel WAAAYYY more than the film because the portrayal of the characters is not how I had imagined it and they changed the ending, which I loved in the novel. "

"Melkein samaa tasoa kuin elokuvaversionsa. Ahdistavuus ja tragikoomisuus on edelleen tärkeässä osassa, eikä tässäkään Alexin ja yhteiskunnan rajalle vedetä selkeää hyvän ja pahan erottelua. Yhteiskunta ei kohtele Alexia oikein ja väkivallan loputon kierre näkyy, kun häntä ei parantuneekaan suvaita ulkomaailmassa. Burgessin romaani sylkee yhteiskuntaa kasvoihin monesta suunnasta, joten ei liene ihme, ettei tämä ja elokuvaversio selvinneet aikoinaan ristiriitaisten arvostelujen v"

"This one really came as a surprise. In the beginning, I didn't feel it was exciting enough but I really got into it when Alex got caught and got sent to prison. It's not the type of book I usually read and enjoy but I couldn't stop reading. "

"What is is about? It is a dystopian novella, written from the perspective of a seemingly unapologetic protagonist. Alex, a young teenager living in near-future socialist England, leads his gang on nightly orgies of opportunistic, random violence. Personal note: Like most of the people (I guess), I have first seen the film and then read the book. What's funny is that even if the movie is a rather good adaptation, there are still some differences, mainly the end. Anyway, they are both very int"

"Myönnän: annoin puoli tähteä pois, sillä kirjan omituinen, venäläisperäinen slangi tuntui välillä liian vaikealta ja kirjan takaa piti jatkuvasti katsoa oikeita sanoja. Lukemisen edetessä tämä kuitenkin väheni, ja tästä sai selvää. Moog Konttiselle (kääntäjä) plussaa siitä, että on saanut käännettyä tämänkaltaisen kirjan. Englanninkielinenkin on jo melko vaikeasti käännettävää tekstiä. Kellopeliappelsiini ottaa melko yhteen elokuvan kanssa, mutta onneksi täss"
