I read this book after watching the brilliant Kubrick film. It's really amazing! Love the English slang, and I felt like I was really living the atmosphere in this book.

"This book has been sitting in my collection for quite a few years. I dont remember purchasing it, but its in like new condition, so im pretty sure i never touched it. Loved the movie (what teenage boy didnt?) and so now that im older and more mature (of course), ive decided to have a go at this book."
