Hey, thanks. You know I like them both for different reasons. I think the book is fascinating and the argot, called "Nadsat" the fictional language used in the book. You get used to it after awhile and don't need a guide. As the author was a linguist, I am drawn to linguistically created books and languages, as in A Clockwork Orange, The Lord of the Rings, All and Everything and so forth. The book is also different in than the movie, in that the final chapter of the book wasn't originally reeled int eh US, and that's the version Kubrik used. Reading the final chapter is interesting. The way the book is built is also very good.
As far as the movie goes, I don't like violent movies as a general rule. However, the art direction and the filming plus the spot-on prediction for the punk movement in Britain, I think is just amazing.
