RhoDeo 1724 Clockwork 3

Hello, well Hamilton cruised to a victory after him there was plenty of exitement, Verstappen had a superstart and went from 5th to second and comfortably held of Bottas until lap 10 his electrics failed, Vettel had to come in for a new nose and ended up 4th, just too little time to collect Ricciardo nevertheless man of the race for me. Perez and Ocon had a good race and ended up 5th and 6th well before Raikonen. There was a sensational finish at the Critérium du Dauphiné whilst Froome tried to shake off Porte who had lost contact at the previous ascent, a thrid 'dog' got the bone Jacob Fugelsang won the stage and thanks to 10 seconds bonus the overal race too, Porte deserved better and he has been the fastest but boni's did him in. Froome not really outstanding, yet, in 3 weeks the Tour De France will be on the road again.

A Clockwork Orange suffers from an artificially inflated degree of mythology. Adapted from the 1962 Anthony Burgess novel about anarchic, slang-spouting yobs ("droogs") in a grey, divided, dystopian future, it was shocking then and still is today, particularly the rape and sadistic "ultraviolence" in the first half. But such unpleasant excesses make important points about the dangers of a two-tier totalitarian society, and the scenes in which ringleader Alex is relentlessly brainwashed into submission by the state send an ambiguous message. It is, however, prescient, visceral, compelling and hard to forget. N'joy.

A Clockwork Orange is a dystopian novel by Anthony Burgess published in 1962. Set in a near future English society featuring a subculture of extreme youth violence, the teenage protagonist, Alex, narrates his violent exploits and his experiences with state authorities intent on reforming him. The book is partially written in a Russian-influenced argot called "Nadsat". According to Burgess it was a jeu d'esprit written in just three weeks. In 2005, A Clockwork Orange was included on Time magazine's list of the 100 best English-language novels written since 1923, and it was named by Modern Library and its readers as one of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.

Sadistic young gang leader Alex leads a carefree life indulging his love of rape, violence and classical music. When he is finally arrested, he is subjected to a sinister form of aversion therapy that brainwashes him into being physically unable to use violence. However, on his release, he finds friends and family have turned on him, while others seek to exploit him to further their political ends.

The book, narrated by Alex, contains many words in a slang argot which Burgess invented for the book, called Nadsat. It is a mix of modified Slavic words, rhyming slang, derived Russian (like baboochka), and words invented by Burgess himself. For instance, these terms have the following meanings in Nadsat: droog = friend; korova = cow; gulliver ("golova") = head; malchick or malchickiwick = boy; soomka = sack or bag; Bog = God; khorosho ("horroshow") = good; prestoopnick = criminal; rooka ("rooker") = hand; cal = crap; veck ("chelloveck") = man or guy; litso = face; malenky = little; and so on.

This is a BBC radio dramatization of A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgess's 1963 novel was published with a glossary of the dystopian language used by Alex, the brutal teenage narrator. The quality of Tom Hollander's performance, however, renders such help unnecessary. Hollander's vocal suggestiveness, grasp of tone, and overall emotional resonance with the novel give listeners amazing clarity. You listen to Alex's adventures, amazed at the clarity Hollander gives to such a verbally ambitious work. This recording also includes the last chapter of the novel (not published in the first American edition), it dates from somewhere around 1997. Directed by Alison Hindell, it stars Tom Hollander  as the murderous 'droog,' Alex.
