One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest!

Ok so I have seen this movie a few times but I never thought to head out and read the book the movie was based on "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" by Ken Kesey...

So when I was told that we had to do an Individual Study for my Year 12 English Studies I decided to buy the book and get reading. I decided to compare 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' novel with 'The Shawshank Redemption" film. And gosh was I suprised about how much I loved doing this essay.

The Shawshank Redemption is one of my favourite films so I was extremely familiar with it already so that tick was nice and simple. The novel "One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest" however was brand new to me and let's just say as soon as I picked it up I was hooked!

If you haven't read this book, I highly recommend it ..... and if you think the movie is enough......then think again!
