Book Review: One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (Kesey)


BOOK REVIEWWWWWWW~!@!#!@$!#$!\!!!!
(I’m hyper.)

Have I read this before: Yes! High school, I think. 10th grade?

Review: I think I was a little too young to really appreciate this the first time I read it. I like the characters and I like the progression of McMurphy’s antagonism toward Nurse Ratched. I also like how once Chief finally started talking, all the patients basically just took it in stride. It’s a really good book—one of those “classics” that I actually think everyone should.

Favorite part: The fishing trip is pretty great. And it sounds bad to say this, but I also really liked the electroshock therapy part. Not because it was happening, of course, but because I really like the way Kesey shows what the therapy does to Chief’s thought processes while it’s underway. It’s pretty scary.
