A Clockwork Orange | Anthony Burgess
post image
Mehso-so

A Clockwork Orange is not an enjoyable read. I don‘t think that I could recommend it, but simultaneously I wouldn‘t discourage anyone from reading it either. My tl;dr summary would be that everyone is evil, there are no good guys, and everything sucks. If you can accept that reality with a heaping serve of extreme violence then this might be the book for you. Full review here: http://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/a-clockwork-orange-anthony-burgess/

TrishB Great summary. I would agree and would never read again. 1w
Bookwomble Ah, I love this book, for its language and poetry, and for its unflinching look at the ease with which the casual evil of an authoritarian society infects the body of the people. I think it's such a relevant book for the unfortunate direction in which the West seems to be slipping. 1w
Scochrane26 I have felt like I should read this one but haven‘t yet. May do as audio, which is what I did for One Flew over the Cuckoo‘s nest. (edited) 1w

keepingupwiththepenguins @Scochrane26 Would love to hear what you think of it 😍 Steel yourself, though - it's not an easy read, whatever the format! ❤ 1w

I went to the Hamilton Exhibition today. As a dramaturg, it was really interesting to be paying a premium price for what was is essentially dramaturgy when my career has been hindered by lack of dramaturgy budgets. Also, I wish the interactive dramaturgical elements had been a little more expanded/dynamic. But it was absolutely gorgeous and they were so thoughtful about the information they presented.

I knew that there was a lot of love for the Broadway Show, but other than that, I did not know anything about the story. It is a moving story about a high school student who has trouble fitting in... until, a tragedy and a mistake change his life. I thought it was so interesting that it was the play that generated the book. Would be a good addition to a school curriculum. Much to discuss.

TrishB Going to see the play in November 👍🏻 2w
DivineDiana @TrishB Wonderful! 👏🏻 2w

The cool thing about audiobooks is you don't really have to worry about a stopwatch. Still loved this one the second time. Who's still reading? #readathon

Ok I'm getting a late start to this #readathon but I'm had a great time in Houston and having my chance to see Be More Chill. Support local theater!!

On my drive back I'll be audio driving. I've read this in print but have been looking forward to the audio version

Last day of #colormepretty! It‘s #secondarycolors!

I really like the Handmaid‘s Tale TV show, but I haven‘t read the book yet. Same with The Darkest Minds. Wicked I‘ve tried to read, but I was at the beach and it didn‘t hold my attention. I LOVE the musical though. My Sister the Serial Killer is a book I‘ve seen a lot on here, and I can‘t wait to get my hands on it.

emilyrose_x I love Wicked the Musical so much, but I really struggled to read the book... 3w
