    1. Volumes in the Cambridge Film Handbook series consists of commissioned essays on some aspect of a given film by scholars in film studies (or in history, gender studies, etc. but looking at the film through that light).This volume dedicated to Stanley Kubrick's classic 1971 adaptation of Anthony Burgess' dystopian novel contains five chapters.

    2. I read this as a teenager. My Mom, concerned I was reading material unfit for my age, asked to look over the novel before I read more. After 15 minutes, she handed the book back and told me, "This makes no sense. read what you like." That was the one and only time my Mom ran interference on my books.Thank you Mom. The book was horrifying but nothing I couldn't handle. Classic Sci-Fi. Worth the effort. (Kubrick employees a creative language requiring the reader to learn a new dialect)

    3. The unique language created by the author makes it worth reading. It's an incredible first person narrative, a cult classic film, and a book like no other. The ending is different from the film as well, giving one a new perspective on A Clockwork Orange.

    4. Really good book, the language was a bit hard to understand, but after watching the movie, you get a general idea.

    5. Excellent book! Liked the plot, characters, and setting. Part of my favorite books of all time along with 1984, Brazil, etc
