    For the most part I like people, even though many of them suck I am also convinced that the world grows a bitstupid every day and that we slowly move away from any kind of social evolution Sure, there s plenty of technological innovation, and dentistry is a far better experience today, but people don t seem to be improving.We still love screwing each other over, arguing about false issues, and murdering each other Infrastructures are straining under corruption, graft, and greed Congres For the most part I like people, even though many of them suck I am also convinced that the world grows a bitstupid every day and that we slowly move away from any kind of social evolution Sure, there s plenty of technological innovation, and dentistry is a far better experience today, but people don t seem to be improving.We still love screwing each other over, arguing about false issues, and murdering each other Infrastructures are straining under corruption, graft, and greed Congress is highly polarized and our representatives do little beyond hooking their friends up and padding the checking account.The worst part of it all is that stupid people just keep breeding.Anthony Burgess, perhaps best known for A Clockwork Orange most likely you ve seen the Kubrick film had this book published in the same year 1962 , and it fits nicely along ot...

    Anthony Burgess is probably best known at least among Americans for his novel A Clockwork Orange Like A Clockwork Orange, The Wanting Seed takes place in a near future society that is in the first stages of decline This book is hilarious and contains such things as reprocessing dead humans, promoting homosexual behavior as a way of population control, famine, and fake wars for the benefit of humanity as a whole These things may not sound funny, but Burgess s language skills shine here, and Anthony Burgess is probably best known at least among Americans for his novel A Clockwork Orange Like A Clockwork Orange, The Wanting Seed takes place in a near future society that is in the first stages of decline This book is hilarious and contains such things as r...

    If you enjoy lackluster writing, prejudices from 30 years ago, unrelatable characters, and inexplicable plot twists, then this is the novel for you If these things annoy you as much as they annoy me, then this is probably not worth reading.Honestly, the most amusing part of the novel was completely unintentional, because things we take for granted in modern society Biracial people Gays Non conformity to gender norms VEGETARIANS are the crux of what...

    The Wanting Seed doesn t beat A Clockwork Orange by a long shot, but it s still a strange, captivating and shocking novel that dares to ask horrendous and necessary questions that society would rather not think of.

    What a peculiar novel Anthony Burgess certainly has a marvellously wicked mind to come up with premises such as this and that in A Clockwork Orange It tells the story of how society crumbles around the main characters, Tristam Foxe and Beatrice Joanna, as overpopulation drives it into anarchical behaviour, cannibalism and chaotic orgies in revolt of the Malthusian world and the government s strict anti natal policies I originally wanted to read this book after seeing it referenced in a revie What a peculiar novel Anthony Burgess certainly has a marvellously wicked mind to come up with premises such as this and that in A Clockwork Orange It tells the story of how society crumbles around the main characters, Tristam Foxe and Beatrice Joanna, as overpopulation drives it into anarchical behaviour, cannibalism and chaotic orgies in revolt of the Malthusian world and the government s strict anti natal policies I originally wanted to read this book after seeing it referenced in a review paper on Calhoun s rodents, which investigated the effect of overpopulation on the psychology and behaviour of rats in a utopian environment The idea behind it interested me greatly and I was eager to see Burgess interpretation.What I didn t expect was the idea of this dystopia being a rather attractive society to live in one where homosexuality is not only legal but promoted and religion is absent The en...

    Loved this book Hilarious and energetic Comes at you like a psychedelic rock song I found the story pretty clever but really loved Burgess sense of apocalypse, as if he transcribed images from Bosch s Garden of Earthly Delights I loved Tristram s trek thru degenerating England, the slow sprawl of history, moving from extreme police states on opposite poles of the structure.Yes, the love story...
