This was a free book from the Independent and will join my Mount TBR.

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...
The basis for one of the most notorious films ever made, A Clockwork Orange is both a virtuoso performance from an electrifying stylist and a serious exploration of the morality of free will.

This was a fascinating book, once I had got through the first couple of chapters. The number of made up words was quite intimidating, but with perserverance I find I am thinking them instead of normal English words (!) and that the book became a lot easier to read. It is quite violent, but also full of morals (although not in an off-putting way). A very well written book.
