The voracious reader attacks an Orange

I read A Clockwork Orange this weekend and I think it's affected me. Not in terms of wanting to go out and kick people in the gulliver, thankfully, but in terms of wanting to call people my droogs and describe things as horrorshow. Being written in this strange Russo-Anglo-American slang made the book a lot more enjoyable to read and distracted me from the violent bits that the movie very graphically showed. In the book, I could concentrate on the language and get on with it.

Have I mentioned that I hate Stanley Kubrick?
