After one fight too many, the court ruled Randle Patrick McMurphy insane and sent him from a work camp to a mental hospital, which thrilled him no end. In his fellow patients he found what he described as "fresh blood" and led them in challenging Big Nurse, who ruled their ward with an iron fist. A short time after McMurphy's arrival, the mental ward is unrecognizable.

I started to read this book when I was twelve, but my father took it away from me, which was probably a smart move. It was originally written for adults and, though it has a lot that would appeal to teens such as myself, younger children might want to steer clear of it. That being said, I'm glad I finally read this book.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is one of those books that everyone should read eventually, and though a lot of people might be offended by McMurphy's lewd behavior, I thought it was great.
