Like most, I remember this movie from many years ago. At that time, I was quite moved by it. And when I listened to the book, I was doubly impressed. Exquisitely written and pulls no punches. Try this one.

Wow! I???d seen the movie some time ago in the 20th Century, but the book is electric. Told from the half Indian???s point of view and not Jack Nicholson???s McMurphy character, (which makes far more sense considering the story's outcome). There???s just so much more going on when you read/listen than when you watch. The imagination is the key thing and more importantly, the writing. Kesey is a brilliant folk story teller/writer who's prose is tight and riveting.
I recommend this one.

I have meaning to read/listen to this title for so long and felt ashamed that, as a book lover, I have never read it. You are in a mental institution and you see the cogs in the machine, and the big nurse pulling the lever. Until,that is a new patient arrives and his aim is to break down the whole operation. It is narrated by another patient that you feel yourself cheering for him at the end. A beautiful story about human soul and its obstacles through life and against oneself.

the performance was good and the story was gripping, but quite shocking as well. really enjoyed it and a relatively short book compared to what i have been reading recently.

What disappointed you about One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest?
I liked the book but the audiobook skipped many paragraphs so it was impossible to read along with my copy of the book
Has One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest put you off other books in this genre?
No, but it has put me off other audiobooks as I don't want to read another book that skips parts.
How could the performance have been better?
Ken Kesey sounded drunk whilst reading and skipped parts
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest?
NONE! I'm complaining about the fact scenes were cut.
Any additional comments?
Frankly the audiobook was a disappointment.
