Teaser Tuesday (7)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others.
* Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

A Clockwork OrangeA Clockwork Orange  - Anthony Burgess  

Ok so it was a little harder to get a good teaser this week, for two reasons. The first was that I'm actually listening to the audio of this book but fortunately I do have a 'real' copy so I dug that out. The second issue was that given the style of the writing, it was hard to pick a bit that made sense lol. The language in Clockwork Orange is unusual and somewhat disorientating (purposely - it adds to the whole thing) and it's something you get used to after a chapter or so but in two sentences, most of it just sounded like nonsense lol. Anyway, make of it what you will ...

So that was Old Dim's cue and he went grinning and going er er er and a a a for this veck's dithering rot, crack crack, first left fistie then right, so that our dear old droog the red - red vino on tap and the same in all places, like it's put out by the same big firm - started to pour and spot the nice clean carpet and the bits of this book that I was still ripping away at, razrez razrez. All this time this devotchka, his loving and faithful wife, just stood like froze by the fireplace, and then she started letting out little malenky creeches, like in time to the like music of old Dim's fisty work.
