it was amazing
Read in September, 2009

I was worried that reading this book without having read a whole hell of a lot of Shakespeare was going to be tantamount to watching a '60s Godard film without having watched a whole hell of a lot of movies: it may be enjoyable but you're gonna miss out on, like, 95% of the in-jokes and references. Sure, I probably didn't catch all (or even 50%) of Burgess's allusions, but I still really dug this book. Fascinating and pretty naughty at times too.
