I have an alternating 3 star5 star relationship with Burgess this falling into the former category The titular doctor is a linguist and the book is about the power of words or perhaps the powerlessness of words in some cases It is freuently funny but sometimes impenetrably British and hard to understand There isn t much of a plot either it s of an odyssey through the London underworld Fun with colorful characters thoughFyi in keeping with the linguist theme there are some offensive words involved Two stereotypically Jewish characters are described doing things jewishly and there s a recurring black dog named well you can probably guess The name turns into a plot device but the payoff isn t worth the offense
