A disappointing classic

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

By: Ken Kesey

Genre: Classic

Pages: 272

Published: 1962

Read: June

1 out of 5 stars

Although I know several people who love this book, I could not get into it and my mind wondered elsewhere constantly.  There were a few parts - McMurphy breaking the nurse's window and planning the fishing trip - that keep me interested. At those times, I would think "I am into it. It will be good." No such luck, I should have given up reading it. I did read in it's entirety and don't know if I would be able to tell you much of what happened throughout the story.  This is definitely one of the few books that I have to say I enjoyed the movie much better.

Kesey has written several other books and died in 2001. He doesn't have a website.
