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 readingHonestly 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 makes this future world a dystopia It reminded me of a late written Agatha Christie novel where the writer's bitterness and disapproval of the way society is swinging is palpable Except instead of having interesting plot keeping you involved all you have in The Wanting Seed is Tristam and Beatrice Joanna wandering around being dull and confusing Now he hates her Now he's crazy Now she's giving birth in an outhouse NOW HE LOVES HER AND FORGIVES HER I finished this book mostly because Burgess' terror at what is completely normal now was mildly amusing

Fantastic fertility rituals and wars without anger It is a novel both extravagantly funny and grimly serio. 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 uestions that society would rather not think of

For the most part I like people even though many of them suck I am also convinced that the world grows a bit stupid 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 improvingWe 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 accountThe worst part of it all is that stupid people just keep breedingAnthony 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 other literary dystopic works such as 1984 Brave New World and Anthem However as much as I loved it it's probably not in the same weight class The Wanting Seed begins in a world that is vastly overpopulated and extreme measures have been institutionalized to handle it People live in tiny box apartments homosexuality is the social norm and it's policed and everyone eats a protein mush as there just aren't enough damn cows in the world to handle the load As you wrap your head around this world seems like it would be easier to just castrate people instead of implemented totalitarian fabulousness Burgess throws a curve ball and suddenly society collapsesYep you're just reading along dum dum dum dum dum and hey the world's endingThe citizens of the world respond to their overcrowding and repression by engaging in mass cannibalism groovy sex parties and general mayhem No this isn't a spoiler alert it's on the damn back of the book so no comments please Then as you would imagine things level out a bitThere's this brainy back story to the book that Burgess is essentially commenting on the cyclical nature of human history which you'll also find in A Clockwork Orange and I'm sure in his other books as well In short people suck they have always sucked and they will continue to suck So why not read a good book and forget about it for a while
