A Clockwork Orange is a dystopian novel by Anthony Burgess. it was first published in the USA in 1962, and became popular in colleges. Back in that time I tried to read it: just couldn't get through the language and metaphors.

Twenty plus years later, Stanley Kubrick made the move, and a cult movie was born.

yesterday, I needed a break from my present thousand page CW books. It is just about 100 pages; so I started reading...quit at page 26.

Has anyone ever found this worth the effort?

Never attempted the book, was forced to watch the movie and write a paper about it in college circa 1980. My first thought on it was "this sure isn't Monty Python".

The movie came out in 1971.
Great movie, Very disturbing, but still a great movie.
I haven't read the book though, maybe the movie departs a ways from the book, I don't know.

Never could bring myself to read the book, more than a quick skim of a couple of pages at the bookstore. (remember them?). Wasn't interested in the book enough to see the movie, Kubrick was a bit weird in his tastes, anyway.

Ray Bradbury is much easier to read.
Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man, and Something Wicked This Way Comes, are all very worth while reads. I've read a ton of his work, I can't say that any were uninteresting.
