Customer Review

on 27 December 2012
I've read almost all of Burgess's novels and I think that this is my favourite. It's supposed to be based on the structure of a symphony, but I think it's best just to forget about that, and enjoy the huge historical sweep, the brilliant characterisation (of Napoleon, in particular, but also Talleyrand and the other historical figures), and the superbly rhythmical prose. Most of all there is Burgess's rich, earthy, brilliant humour. Burgess is the reason I became an author, and this, although a little hard to penetrate, is, I think, his masterpiece.
