Book Review: One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey

kesey book cover

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey is a wonderful book dealing with a rather shocking perspective of a group of psychiatric patients. Instead of the fixed concepts of a merciful and beneficial hospital, the book reveals a strictly hierarchical and an overly supervised tyranny of the hospital administrators over the patients. With a matriarchal structure, the book introduces a new insight on feminism and on the ironic and revolutionary spirit that develops within the hospital. Guided through the vague views of a patient, you would find the book fresh and unpredictable.
