This is a wonderfully engaging novel told from the perspectiveof a mental patient. Read it! Now on to the subject I wanted totalk about. There is a customer review by a 6 year old girl (from 1997) telling the story in her own words. I would like to inform anyone who cares that the events the little girl spoke of were not true to the book. They were scenes from the movie with Jack Nicholson. The movie and the book are very similar, but there are very huge differences, one being the fishing trip. The "little girl" told the movie version. In the book version, the patients have permission to go on the trip, and Doctor Spivey accompanies them on the trip...This really is a wonderful novel and I hope everyone will read it AND see the movie to see the differences. The movie is classic, so if you really don't want to read the book, see the movie, but don't play it off like you read the book.
