A Clockwork Orange is a shocking and violent novel about a fifteen-year-old boy Alex. The novel follows Alex through his acts of ultra-violence, his imprisonment, and his reformation. His time in prison was one of the turning points in his life, and that’s why his number 6655321 is constantly repeated on the cover. This repetition with a bright contrast of colors creates tension and makes one wonder what connection it has to a clockwork orange.
