    Boisterous, ribald, and ultimately shattering, Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest has left an indelible mark on the literature of our time. Turning conventional notions of sanity and insanity on their heads, the novel tells the unforgettable story of a mental ward and its inhabitants, especially tyrannical Big Nurse Ratched and Randle Patrick McMurphy, the brawling, fun-loving new inmate who resolves to oppose her.

    "Great American Novel"

    What did you love best about One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest?

    I love this novel and consider it one of the best American novels of the past 100 years. John C. Reilly's narration was supperb.


    Have you listened to any of John C. Reilly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've never heard him narrate a book before but I do think that he is a good actor and have enjoyed him in such movies as Boogie Nights.

    A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan's California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified "dinery server" on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation: the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other's echoes down the corridor of history.

    Cynthia says: "Complicated and Not Good for Listening!"

    Story
    (223)

    With the closing of the Harlan County, Kentucky coalmines, marijuana has become the biggest cash crop in the state. A hundred pounds of it can gross three-hundred thousand dollars, but that’s chump change compared to the quarter million a human body can get you - especially when it’s sold off piece-by-piece. So when Dickie and Coover Crowe, dope-dealing brothers known for sampling their own supply, decide to branch out into the body business, it’s up to U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens to stop them.

    Roy says: "Justified"
    "Likeable but not remarkeable"

    Story
    If you could sum up Raylan in three words, what would they be?

    good solid storytelling


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Raylan Givens character and how he uses his wits and nerves of steel to get out of tough spots.
