"A Clockwork Orange" Book Vs. Film watch


    The film adaptation is completely different to the book - they have two different endings. Anyone who thinks the film is a loyal adaptation has been reading the American edition of the book, which omits the last chapter! The final chapter is completely imperative to the book for me, where you leave the story in the film...it's just too, optimistic. You're left with a completely different feeling with the conclusion in the original version of the book.

    I really like the film, and I love the book - but I see them as very different.

    I've never seen the film, but the book disturbed me a little. Not because of all the violent scenes within it, but more the 'message' of the book.
    It's the kind of book I'm glad I have read, but will never read again.

    I like both. I love the book, and I love the film. Yeah, there were deviations from the book in the film, but partly because of the time it was made I think those were understandable, and taking that into consideration it's amazing it got made the way it did at all. I wouldn't venture to say either is better or worse than the other, I enjoyed both equally and think they complemented eachother well.
