This book is based on a 1971 British science fiction film A Clockwork Orange directed by Stanley Kubrick. It employs disturbing, violent images to comment on psychiatry, juvenile delinquency, youth gangs, and other social, political, and economic subjects in a dystopian future Britain. Nowadays, there are many choices in front of us but it seems like we have little choice at the same time. We are all controlled by big companies, advertisements, media and governments, etc. Do we have choices or not? This film and book is a good opportunity to think in more depth about what freedom is and can be.
