i have recently finished A Clockwork Orange, and i have to say, its a must-read. its about a 15 year old boy who gets his pleasures by going out with his "droogs" at night and stirring up the "ultra-violence." its full of a youthful slang, made up by anthony burgess to fit the young boys' lifestyle. after reading this, i also recommend the movie. its a bit rough in the nudity category, but if you don't mind that, you'll like it a lot, i assure you.
i also have a list of really great books i have read in the past. i'll post that later.
