It ranks in the very top
It captured a time in India in a timeless way -- aspects of the story resonate today.
He captured the "voices" of the characters in a very believable and entertaining way.
I have not read the print version, or at least I can't recall reading it. It is possible I read it many, many years ago.
I'm not in a position to suggest much, especially when dealing with an unreliable narrator (the Chief, not Reilly). Still, there were parts of the book that felt manipulated and beyond the domain of an unreliable narrator (e.g., like the fishing expedition, when the doctor drops out of the story, even though he was present). Of course, the book is a relic of the past, and relies on caricatures of many types.
Spoiler Alert!!!!I wasn't happy to see McMurphy die, but it was a very rich and poignant scene.
I wouldn't rename it.
An exceptional narration. It was clear Reilly everything he had into it.
For others like me who can't get enough of anything dog -- but with qualifiers.
The cliff hangers were tiresome. Story could have been significantly edited back.
