Kubrick was class, I'll be getting the paper tomorrow for the book

thanks for this, gives me something to do tomorrow. Where can the book be received do you have to send off for it?

Thanks for the pointer

It's a great novel, one of my favourites along side 1984, but the film really disappointed me. The book is similar but so much less camp!

Will be interesting to see if this is the European or American edition. The difference was that the European edition had an extra final chapter tagged onto the end, which explained Alex's integration back into society and reflecting on his droog days. The American version is the one which Kubrick read and adapted into a movie.

For anyone who hasnt read either editions, be warned that you will constantly be referring to a glossary of 'nadset' the made up language of Burgess's future vision (and I hope this isnt one of the editions that doesnt include a glossary or you will be quite stuck in understanding what the droogs are talking about most of the time!) By the end of the book you will be using the nadset language as if its your own, just dont adorn a bowler hat or the state will be after you.

Rabbitmoon, be careful or you'll get a tolchock in the old yarblockoes.

Thanks for the heads up schizoboy and kudos1uk

Just bought the newspaper and the book was with it. Thanks for the tip. Voted hot+

Just got the Paper and the book - Has some quotes from the movie film, cant wait to read it, and remince with the film. Il say it again a "bizzare" film with a sick twist to get anyone confused. hehe

the independant version has 7 chapters and a glossary, which doesn't seem to be complete, but it is a free book.

cheers!!! never say no to a book especially if its free! Besides, I'm always up for learning a new language!

Haven't even seen the film let alone read the book :giggle: so thanks for this!
