A Clockwork Orange - Anthony Burgess

Criticising control of rebellious youth.

The novel looks at one young man in particular, leader of a violent gang, and what he does, and what is done to him by a rather fascist government to rein him in.

Also would seem to be about the usual fears of the old people of the powerless in general youth of the time, in whatever time.

Unfortunately, a little dull to go along with that, an comes across as contrived at times.

3 out of 5
