Julie Guerrero The novel "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" by Ken Kessey, was one of the best books I have read ever since my high school years. It was the only novel that kept me interested in what was going to happen next and I couldn't put it down for second. What I enjoyed the most is the way the main character, McMurphy, performed his role and the way the author set up the story. The novel is about a man named McMurphy who goes into the world of the mental hospital and objects and refuse to obey the rules. He then takes over the Big Nurse who had the power of authority and McMurphy leads the other patients around him to experience fun and happiness. McMurphy does this by promoting gambling and he sneaks in women in the ward. His only goal in this novel is to reduce the other patien't fears toward the Big Nurse and to forget about the rules for once and have fun. Overall, this is a very interesting, enjuyable and a funny novel, and I defintely recommend it.
