One Flew Over The Cuckoos Next
The movie was fantastic, but the book is phenomenal. As it is told from the point of view of the selectively mute Indian Chief, the reader sees the asylum as it appears to the inmates haunting, twisted and cold. Using incredibly visual language, we see Nurse Ratched control the whole ward like a huge spider in the middle of her web, new inmate Randall P McMurphy burst in like a hurricane, and the ensuing battle of wits between them. At times hilarious and uplifting, at others shocking and tragic, this book is unforgettable. Reviewed by 52mm
