The use of Nadsat can be relatively confusing for the reader, however, you slowly begin to understand the terminology while progressing through the novel. This is an interesting tool as it acts as a buffer for the reader, protecting them from the horror initially and then opening up and divulging the gritty details as the plot develops.
But if you stay with it you'll find a great story and a classic of the twentieth century. The film is more famous the book but it really should be the other way around. Excellent.
But I don't see why this book is so controversial because, despite people saying you sympathise with Alex, I don't see that because I didn't necessarily LIKE him as a person but I wanted to follow him along. He was sneaky, selfish and sly but the conclusion at the end is great because of the change he experiences. I feel like this book is likeable as it is not very long with an interesting story so definitely read it!
By the way, the cover of the book is not necessarily the same as the one in the picture. It really depends on where you end up buying it from. Mine is jet black with grey lettering that says 'BANNED BOOKS' on the front and the name of the book on the spine - I am not unhappy with it. Obviously this does not detract from the content of the book but I was surprised to see the cover was different. Bear that in mind when buying.
