I wonder why nobody mentioned A Clockwork Orange. It seemed like a banned book.
A few high school libraries banned it, however this was mostly caused as a result of the objection to the film.

I didn't know that, although I HAVE watched the movie. Thanks for clearing that up.

Unless I'm mistaken, the book was never banned; only the movie.

A Clockwork Orange qualifies as a banned book. Now's your chance to join right in with a nomination. I'm even willing to provide links.

Edit: I stand corrected. Didn't see above posts.

Well I DO! I nominate A Clockwork Orange. Although this to and fro is confusing.

I stand firmly corrected: A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess is listed on the American Library Association's list of Banned & Challenged Classics.

A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgess

In 1973 a book seller in Orem, Utah, was arrested to selling the novel. Charges were later dropped, but the book seller as forced to close the store and relocate to another city. Removed from Aurora, Colo. high school (1976) due to "objectionable" language and from high school classrooms in Westport, Mass. (1977) because of "objectionable" language. Removed from two Anniston, Ala. High school libraries (1982), but later reinstated on a restricted basis. Source: 2004 Banned Books Resource Guide, ed. Robert P. Doyle.

The only effect banning a book has is to make more people want to read it in order to find out what it was that made others want to ban it.
