Fifteen-year-old Alex doesn't just like ultra-violence - he also enjoys rape, drugs and Beethoven's ninth. He and his gang of droogs rampage through a dystopian future, hunting for terrible thrills. But when Alex finds himself at the mercy of the state and subject to the ministrations of Dr Brodsky, and the mind-altering treatment of the Ludovico Technique, he discovers that fun is no longer the order of the day.

It is brutal and disturbing but the book is fascinating with how its manages to still make the monstrous protagonist compelling and the deciphering of the slang makes the setting that much more immersive and unique. Highly recommended.
