A Clockwork Orange

My English teacher mentioned this book, and that day after school, my friend bought it. Has anyone read it? If so, did you like it?

Welcome to decades ago. It was a movie also. Google is your friend, as is wikipedia with regards to it.

It's very forward and gratuitous in it's depiction of violence and sex, though it uses phrases you will not recognise. A suggestion, go read it yourself.

If you get it from the library, make sure there are no notes translating the book's slang scrawled in the margins. That ruined the first part of the book for me.

Imagine if you actually speak Russian, and are watching the movie for the first time.
