I'm not sure what I expected when I picked this up. I'd heard a lot about the movie and how graphic and revolutionary it was. Graphic??? VERY. Revolutionary, not quite. Overall, I'm glad I read it. As a fan of Lewis Carroll, I was happy to see someone else make up their own language and I even found myself thinking in terms of Nadsat afterwards. So I'll wrap this up by saying it makes a horrorshow book for a skorry raskazz. This edition includes a final chapter which was previously unreleased in the USA. I'm also going to attach a copy of a Nadsat dictionary when i brosay it out there so that it will be a malenky bit easier to pony.

Woohoo! The book came all the way from USA in 5 days time - impressive! I'm thankful to Melissa and already started to read it as it's one of my top priorities :-)
Finished last morning. LOVED the book, ten times more than the movie, that was good, but that Kubrick guy was not so smart as I thought he was. Follow the american 20-charpter version instead of the original 21, even shooting in UK? But as for the book, it's really one of a kind and no doubt it inspired a lot of today's writers.
