    Last night, at about 2 am, I finished One Flew Over the Cuckoo s Nest by Ken Kesey I lay awake for a long time afterward, watching the bars of light on the ceiling, holding my eyes open until the pupils dilated enough to shrink the light, then I d blink and have to start all over.Finally I sat up and turned on the lights The book had done something to me Like it d punched me in the face and said, Do something, you idiot So I gathered up a bunch of sentimental shit from around my apartment, stuffed it into a backpack, hiked across town, and threw it off the Morrison Bridge.The backpack made a loud thunk when it hit the water Like a body falling from a building I watched it float downstream a tiny dot weaving through the rippling reflections of the city lights, until it finally sank below the surface.I tell you this story because, in a way, throwing that bag of stuff off the bridge is the best analysis I can make of Kesey s book.So much has been said before, what else can I say Chuck Palahniuk summed it up nicely in the forward for the Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition He explains that Cuckoo s Nest tells the same story as the most popular novels of the last century, it focuses on the modern paradox of trying to be human in the well oiled machine of a capitalist democracy, where you must be either a sav...

    Profane, hilarious, disturbing, heartbreaking, shocking powerful.Ken Kesey s genre defining 1962 novel that was made into a Broadway play and then made into an Academy Award winning film starring Jack Nicholson will inspire strong emotions I can see people loving it or hating it.I loved it.First of all, and I mean this from the bottom of my heart a book that is banned from libraries has a place on my bookshelf So all you amateur censurers out there you are my enemy I don t like you I defy you A book that you don t like is a book that I do and I want to rub it in your face.This from Wikipedia One Flew Over the Cuckoo s Nest is one of America s most highly challenged and banned novels 1974 Five residents of Strongsville, Ohio sued the local Board of Education to remove the novel from classrooms They deemed the book pornographic and said that it glorifies criminal activity, has a tendency to corrupt juveniles, and contains descriptions of bestiality, bizarre violence, and torture, dismemberment, death, and human elimination 1975 The book was removed from public schools in Randolph, New York and Alton, Oklahoma 1977 Removed from the required reading list in Westport, Maine 1978 Banned from the St Anthony, Idaho Freemont High School and the teacher who assigned the novel was fired 1982 Challenged at Merrimack, New Hampshire High School 1986 Challenged at Aberdeen Washington High school in Honors English classes.2000 Challenged at Placentia Unified Schoo...

    I have a love hate relationship with this book The writing and imagery are superb and I always love a down with tyrannical overloads, generic living, and medicalization moral, but its other lesson leaves me cringing In the basic knowledge I have of Ken Kesey, the book ultimately seems very misogynistic and anti feminist I m all for a gender balance, but this book botches up the entire process in a method that purposely lacks tongue in cheek flair Basically, the plot seems to involve men mentally castrated by a domineering woman who could just as easily be labeled Bitch as she could Big Nurse Enter main character who, in my tattered, yellow paged, 70 s copy, directly labels him as the hero of the book on the back cover a man that pretty much shakes the men up to the supposed feminization of American culture and how it s destroying their identities as males Read here a huge characterization of the male ego is to dominate the female with opposites all around How is this man so easily labeled a hero Have we forgotten he has been charged and convicted, among other things, with rape of a female mino...

    My friend Ed was recently updating his books with reviews on here and this book popped up in my feed It s my husband s favorite movie book of all time and I realized that I had never picked the book up I ve watched bits and pieces of the movie in the three thousand times that my husband has watched it, but I had never experienced it first hand.I m gutted.Why have I not just sat down and watched the film that was made from this book I m completely off my rocker Randle Patrick McMurphy That guy who plays crazy to get out of a work detail Goes into the mental hospital and completely owns it He gets the inmates to smoking, drinking, having women and fishing He makes them back into the men that they were.I wanted to reach over and touch the place where he was tattooed, to see if he was still alive He s layin awful quiet I told myself, I ought to touch him to see if he s still aliveThat s a lie I know he s still alive That ain t the reason I want to touch him I want to touch him because he is a man The evil in this book Nurse Ratched I usually have a fond spot for the villains but this woman scares me She has got to be one of the top baddies of all time I still have goosebumps from her I ve always been hit or miss on books that are called classics and that s probably why I have not tried some that now I m beginning to reconsider Because if they are like this...

    August 2017THANK GOODNESS I GAVE THIS ANOTHER TRY Honestly though, watching the movie is what motivated me to pick this book up, and the fact that we picked it for my book club helped as well I love both the book and the movie, both for completely different reasons In the movie, Jack Nicholson s R.P McMurphy is the main focus, whereas in the book Chief Bromden the narrator plays a much bigger role, which is almost entirely neglected in the movie Reading the book from Chief s perspective added a whole new layer to the story, what with his backstory and hallucinations Plot wise, the book and movie are almost identical, but the feel is so much different between the two, which I thought was brilliantly done on the movie making end All in all, I really enjoyed this, and I highly recommend picking it up Also, the Penguin Clas...

    one flew east, one flew west,One flew over the cuckoo s nest.This classic book gave birth to a movie which won a truckload of Academy Awards This means the majority of readers are familiar with one or the other and I thought a very brief review would be enough something along the lines, The book is very good Seeing that some people miss the point of the story I had to ramble a little than this short sentence, sorry A ward of a mental hospital in Oregon was ruled by an iron hand of its head nurse Ratched She even had power over the doctor of the ward The patients were completely under her thumb until a rebellious guy called McMurphy was committed for the treatment He decided to challenge the nurse s rule for completely selfish and not so selfish reasons I mentioned the movie This is one of the rare and very precious occasions when the movie was as good as the book In case you have not seen it, but like the book drop everything and do it now Those Oscars I mentioned in the beginning they are well deserved I also believe Jack Nicholson was born to play McMurphy No actor in the world dead or alive could do a better job I really did not want to use the movie stills in my review as countless other people did it in theirs, but I also thought it is impossible to talk about the book without mentioning the movie By the way I saw it before reading the book Late...

    One Flew Over the Cuckoo s Nest is a groundbreaking book and it is a manifesto about the rights of man to have an individuality a guy has to learn to get along in a group before he ll be able to function in a normal society how the group can help the guy by showing him where he s out of place how society is what decides who s sane and who isn t, so you got to measure up.Are you different from the others Then we ll correct you, make you fit and suit people will force you one way or the other, into doing what they think you should do, or into just being mule stubborn and doing the opposite out of spite.Society strives to ...

    I first read this book in 2007 after I became a daytime outpatient at Our Lady of Peace, my city s mental health facility I had a nervous breakdown after losing my teaching job I went 5 days a week I ate lunch there I was so medicated they transported me Somehow this book and movie, and especially the character of McMurphy, was how my dad related to me during this trying time Mental health is a trigger issue with me It s not understood today It certainly wasn t understood in the 60s Let s just keep them caged, sedated, and manipulated Make them feel guilty about their problems Take away comfort and leisure No friends, no family, no fun, no fresh air Yeah, that sounds healthyAddendum 2 13 18 just bought this on audible 50th anniversary edition read by John C Reilly Got me thinking of my dad asking his McMurphy how Ms Ratchett was today That was probably the roughest patch of my life, but I would never have changed a thing I learned so much about myself, and became so much stronger in spirit However, I realize that if I had lived in an earlier time period my outcome could have been much gloomier and permanent I ve been reading various other mental health books lately, and sadly some things never change as advanced medicine has become We just can t seem to grasp the BRAIN.AUDIO RER...

    I needed some time to get used to the writing style, but letting the Chief an outside figure, who, due to his deafness , doesn t intervene with the main storyline too much is certainly a stroke of genius, and after a while, I got used to his way of telling the story.All the characters found a place in my heart, and they are what make the book so remarkable and memorable I thought they were some unnecessary scenes, but th...
