  • "A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of Anthony Burgess's novel which became a controversial film in the 1970s. In a nightmare world of the near future, packs of teenagers run wild, beyond the control of their families or the police. Alex is a gang-leader, addicted to drug-fuelled assault, torture and rape."
  • "Shocking, radical, and undeniably thought-provoking, A Clockwork Orange remains the most enduring novel by Anthony Burgess--a Fellow of Britain's Royal Society of Literature. With the tone of a nightmarish comedy, Burgess satirically envisions a warped future in which gangs of sadistic youths rule the streets after dark. Meet Alex, a 15-year-old boy who enjoys rape, ultraviolence, and Beethoven."@en

  • "Burgess' satire of the present inhumanity of man to man through a futuristic culture where teenagers rule with violence, and includes the final chapter deleted from the first American edition and the introduction to "A Clockwork Orange Resucked.""@en
  • "In this 1962 classic, a novelistic exploration of modern crime and punishment, Alex is the 15-year-old leader of his gang of "droogs" thriving in the ultraviolent future as prophetically imagined by Burgess. Speaking a bizarre Russian-derived slang, Alex and his friends freely pillage and slash their way across a nightmarish urban landscape until Alex is captured by the judicial arm of the state. He then becomes their prized guinea pig in a scientific program to completely "redeem" him for society. If we had the power of absolute criminal reform, what, the novel asks, would this mean for our ideals of freedom and society? This edition reinstates the final chapter missing from Kubrick's film and from all American editions prior to 1987, in which Alex is on the verge of starting a family as he reflects on--and completely rejects--his adolescent nastiness. It also includes Burgess's introduction "A Clockwork Orange Resucked.""
  • "A vicious fifteen-year-old droog is the central character of this [book]. In [the author's] nightmare vision of the future, where the criminals take over after dark, the story is told by the central character, Alex, who talks in a brutal invented slang that ... renders his and his friends' social pathology. [This] is a frightening fable about good and evil, and the meaning of human freedom. And when the state undertakes to reform Alex to "redeem" him, the novel asks, "At what cost?" -Back cover."@en
