One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

"A work of genuine literary merit . . . What Mr. Kesey has done in his unusual novel is to transform the plight of a ward of inmates in a mental hospital into a glittering parable of good and evil."
--The New York Times Book Review

"[A] brilliant first novel . . . a strong, warm story about the nature of human good and evil . . . Keysey has made his book a roar of protest against middlebrow society's Rules and the invisible Rulers who enforce them."
--Time

"The final triumph of these men at the cost of a terrifying sacrifice should send chills down any reader's back. . . . This novel's scenes have the liveliness of a motion picture."
--The Washington Post

"An outstanding book . . . [Kesey's] characters are original and real. . . . This is a tirade against the increasing controls over man and his mind, yet the author never gets on a soap box. Nor does he forget that there is a thin line between tragedy and comedy."
--Houston Chronicle

-Stefan- – 11.10.2005

– Boken som inspirerte klassikerfilmen med Jack Nicholsen er et enestående eksempel på god, moderne litteratur. Den skildrer livet på asylet på en skremmende måte, og beskriver en hverdag som viser hvor feil vi har tatt i fortiden når det gjelder behandling av de sinnsyke, og de "sinnsyke". Bromdens drømmer og fantasier forteller om klaustrofobien hans, og hvor innestengt man kan føle seg. Det er ikke før den lystige McMurphy forandrer synet hans på livet at han innser hvor viktig det er å leve livet på den beste mulige måten, og at han ikke skulle la noen stå i veien for ham. En fantastisk bok som bruker asylet som en metafor for verden, der vi overvåkes og behandles dårlig på daglig basis, og hvor viktig det er å selv bestemme over sin egen skjebne.
