You remember when you were in school and had to write an essay, but knew you really had nothing to say? How you’d try to make it seem like it was longer by writing really big, double spacing, and leaving even more space after the margin than there was before it (I know, handwritten essays, how terribly 20th century)? Well, that’s exactly what the publishers have done with this book.
Hmm. Clockwork Orange, you say? Well, just maybe you might be on to something. Teen alienation, sexual violence, submission and domination, nihilism that would be terrifying in an adult, let alone a teenager. I should probably stop there, given I’m basing this all on the film. Another book to add to the ‘should probably get around to reading at some point’ pile.
