I'll be totally honest: I have no idea what the hell was going on for about half of this book. Actually, maybe more like a 60/40 split between "what the hell?" and understanding what was happening. Burgess writes in such a dense, oblique style that it's tough to figure out what's actually happening as part of the narrative and what's metaphor or tangential information (or entirely imaginary on the part of the characters). It's a neat trick to keep readers so completely off-balance and keep them reading-- it is interesting and compelling-- but a lot of the time I felt adrift in Burgess's baroque literary hijinks.
