One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey


My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I've read this several times over the years and always get something new out of it. Murphy, a conman and petty criminal, pretends to be mentally ill to get out of going to prison. He turns the ward upside down but is in a battle of wills with the control freak "big nurse." This time reading it, I found that there is a lot of me in both main characters. At times I am the iconoclast and at other times I am control freak. It interesting to me that I have never seen myself in the nurse before...hmmm... could I be learning something over the years?
