Default 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' by Ken Kesey (Sa16+)


Welcome to The Book Seekers' second Book of the Month discussion! If you don't know what Book of the Month is, there's more information here, but in a nutshell it is a monthly event during which we all read the same book and discuss it here.

As you can see, this month we're reading One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey!

Age Rating | Sa16+
Genre | Classic Fiction
Summary from Goodreads | Tyrannical Nurse Ratched rules her ward in an Oregon State mental hospital with a strict and unbending routine, unopposed by her patients, who remain cowed by mind-numbing medication and the threat of electric shock therapy. But her regime is disrupted by the arrival of McMurphy – the swaggering, fun-loving trickster with a devilish grin who resolves to oppose her rules on behalf of his fellow inmates. His struggle is seen through the eyes of Chief Bromden, a seemingly mute half-Indian patient who understands McMurphy's heroic attempt to do battle with the powers that keep them imprisoned. Ken Kesey's extraordinary first novel is an exuberant, ribald and devastatingly honest portrayal of the boundaries between sanity and madness.
Let's go over some ground rules...
  • All Book Club Rules and SnitchSeeker Board Rules apply in this forum.
  • You can discuss ANYTHING that is related to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest in here. However, it must be kept SPOILER FREE until August 15th. Any spoiler-y things must be put under a spoiler tag. Remember that other people might not have read as far along as you.
    • Any posts that contain spoilers (that aren't under spoiler tags) will be edited by a Book Club mod.
  • On July 15th, a more structured discussion will start. At this point, spoilers WILL be allowed. This discussion will continue (officially) until September 11th. That being said, the thread will remain open for everyone to discuss the book after the main discussion is over.

There's more? There is! While we're reading and discussing One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, there are other related things that you can get involved with.
  • Feeling inspired? Contribute some One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest fanart to our new Bookish Fan Art thread.
  • Submit One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest related posts to our Tumblr!

If you have issues or queries, contact Harron Peasley or natekka – and don't forget that you can still nominate books for future Book of the Months!
Ready, Set, Read!

It definitely kept my attention all the way through. I didn’t really care much for the ending, though I did kind of see it coming through the whole book. An interesting read - recommended!

....I only started last weekend and let me tell you it's not exactly a cheerful, easy summer read. I mean, I KNEW it wasn't going to be, based on the film and the play but...the book is even more intense.

I read it last summer so I know what you mean... though I haven't seen the film or the play.

I should probably at least skim through the book again to refresh my memory. :3

It's been on my to read list since FOREVER. But these kind of reads are definitely my favourite kind.
