    Description

    One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is a novel by Ken Kesey upon which is based the Oscar-winning film.

    Summary of the Book

    “Chief” Bromden is a large half-native American man, one among several inmates at a mental institution. Life at the institution is very rigid, and the inmates are controlled by the head administrative nurse, Mildred Ratched. Nurse Mildred doesn’t like nonsense, and three black day-shift orderlies help her maintain an authoritarian discipline in the institution. No one raises their voice against her. No one dares make a comment, or even try to argue with her. Then one day, Chief notices a strange new inmate among them. His name is Randle Patrick McMurphy, and he doesn’t really seem to be in need of medical attention. Chief is right, for McMurphy is only here to escape prison. He’s convicted of raping a 15 year old girl, and will do anything to serve a peaceful alternate sentence here in the asylum. However, there’s a slight problem. McMurphy has a penchant for antagonizing Nurse Mildred. Both of them are constantly at odds, and soon their conflicts engulf the entire asylum. McMurphy soon inspires other inmates in the asylum to gather the bravery to take on Nurse Mildred. The entire institution rises up against the tyrant and soon, chaos ensues. However Nurse Mildred won’t give up without a fight, and neither will McMurphy.

    RIBALD! ANGRY! FUNNY! TRAGIC!

    Ken Kesey's novel is an exquisite blend of emotions- of deep soul-felt pain, of anguish, of a hunger for the joys of life and of ribald humor. The intensity of the theme doesn't at any point dampen the exuberant humor which remains integral to the book. The novel throws light on rule-bound mediocre society's abhorrence for any sort of aberration, any departure from the 'norm' that must be corrected at any cost or must be put out of view so that a sense of order is restored.

    Crazy and Unpredictable

    Despite the detaching start it keeps you hooked as you read on. Simply unpredictable and in the end it keeps you thinking, guessing, scratching your head for possibilities and asking whether it was or whether it was not.
    A must read I would say, if you are not expecting fancy catch phrases and ready to just enter a world of brute humor and susceptibility and suspense.
