Read full description of the books:
Wonderful book, like dark chocolate -- so sweet yet bitter at the same time.
Janet Shirley is so much fun as a narrator, she's the perfect foil for Alex in A CLOCKWORK ORANGE. At first she seems sweet, fun, down to earth and kind. Only little by little do you notice that she's not much interested in other people, only in her own pleasures. The nature of the pleasures is interesting, too. She's not a sadist like Alex, far from it. If she had her way she'd just be left to enjoy herself innocently in random sex, random spending, and random travel. She's only interested in having all the wonderful things people on TV have, and she doesn't care how she gets them. But violence and murder are only a means to an end, never an end in themselves.
Janet's husband Howard is a much less likable character. It's important to bear in mind that he's not entirely Burgess' stand-in. The cheap shots at modern culture, pop music and television probably reflect Burgess' views. But Burgess understands that Howard is just as dishonest about the past as popular culture is about the present. At one point Janet innocently remarks that Howard "is selling the past just like he sells one of his used cars" and that really sums it up.
But it's really Jan's book, and if you're like me you'll end up cheering for her in spite of yourself.
