This excellent version of Kesey's classic novel does not supplement the fine Recorded Books edition (Audio Reviews, LJ 2/1/93). However, this Blackstone version is a worthy companion, based on the reading skills of narrator Tom Parker. Parker does an exceptional job of bringing to life the characters of Randall Patrick McMurphy, Big Nurse Ratched, Chief Broom, and the others occupying the Oregon mental hospital. He is especially good with Chief Broom, the story's narrator, presenting the chief's state of mind in seeing dark forces behind the nurse's actions plus the changes he undergoes through McMurphy's rebellious, fun-loving nature. Parker's skills and the continuing popularity of this work make this version a required purchase for all collections, even those libraries that have the earlier edition.?Stephen L.

Great characterization and writing style. The characters were well developed and portrayed, the antagonists were destestable, and one really cared for the protagonists. Read morePublished on Aug. 20 2005 by Katherine

Call me crazy, but I like books dealing with anything psychological be it the looney bin or just good old "not quite right" people walking around. Read morePublished on July 24 2004
Easily my favorite book. There are 4 or 5 characters that are so interesting that they could have written an entire book about them alone. Read morePublished on July 15 2004 by Grant Lankard
