‘What’s it going to be then, eh?’ There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie, and Dim, Dim being really dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar making up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening, a flip dark chill winter bastard though dry. The Korova Milkbar was a milk-plus mesto, and you may, O my brothers, have forgotten what these mestos were like, things changing so skorry these days and everybody very quick to forget, newspapers not being read much neither. Well, what they sold there was milk plus something else. They had no licence for selling liquor, but there was no law yet against prodding some of the new vesches which they used to put into the old moloko, so you could peet it with velocet or synthemesc or drencrom or one or two other vesches which would give you a nice quiet horrorshow fifteen minutes admiring Bog And All His Holy Angels and Saints in your left shoe with lights bursting all over your mozg. Or you could peet milk with knives in it, as we used to say, and this would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of dirty twenty-to-one, and that was what we were peeting this evening I’m starting off the story with..
The story takes place in the late 1990's and early 2000's but was written back in the 1960's and describes the corruption in the government. Alex, our main character, is caught after being set up by one of his friends, Georgie, that is, and is sentenced to prison for 14 years. Alex, wanting to get out sooner than this, of course, hears about a new treatment called the "Ludovico Treatment." Which is a horrible thing that is supposed to reform criminals. This treatment ends up making Alex sick when he thinks of any acts of violence or sex. But also, as a result of one of the sessions, he cannot listen to his old favourite song, Ludwig Van Beethoven's 9th Symphony.
