One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

By: Ken Kesey

Narrarated by: Tom Parker

In this classic 1960s novel, Ken Kesey's hero is Randle Patrick McMurphy. You’ve never met anyone like Randle Patrick McMurphy. He’s a boisterous, brawling, fun-loving rebel who swaggers into the ward of a mental hospital and takes over. He’s a lusty, profane, life-loving fighter who rallies the other patients around him by challenging the dictatorship of Big Nurse. He promotes gambling in the ward, smuggles in wine and women, and at every turn, openly defies her rule.

The contest starts as sport, with McMurphy taking bets on the outcome, but soon it develops into a grim struggle for the minds and hearts of the men, an all-out war between two relentless opponents: Big Nurse, backed by the full power of authority, and McMurphy, who has only his own indomitable will. What happens when Big Nurse uses her ultimate weapon against McMurphy provides the story’s shocking climax.

What's the deal?


The audio book ended much differently then the actual book. It's almost like it wasn't finished. No talk of Billy Bibbit slashing is neck because of the Big Nurse, McMurphy being snuffed out by Chief's pillow, or Chief finally busting the window and running off. When it ended I thought for a second that I hadn't downloaded the entire thing. A bit of a let down I'll admit.
