    You've never met anyone like Randle Patrick McMurphy. He's a lusty, profane, life-loving fighter who rallies the other patients around him by challenging the dictatorship of Big Nurse. The contest starts as sport (with McMurphy taking bets on the outcome) but soon it develops into a grim struggle for the minds and hearts of the men, into an all-out war between 2 relentless opponents: Big Nurse, backed by the full power of authority, and McMurphy, who has only his own indomitable will.

    Ingrid says: "Better in audio than in print"
    "Perfect Matchup!"
    Overall

    Kesey at his most lucid and most entertaining. This novel is read flawlessly by Tom Parker who lends such remarkable credibility to Kesey's characters that this classic novel is now even more powerful than ever. Please dear Tom, do read Sometimes a Great Notion!

  • Right Turns: Unconventional Lessons From a Controversial Life

    Michael Medved is an orthodox Jew whose popular radio show is a favorite with evangelical Christians. As a nationally syndicated movie reviewer he made headlines with a controversial book titled Hollywood vs. America. He is a fervent and committed conservative who once worked 18-hour days in Bobby Kennedy's presidential campaign. And he counts among his friends both Rush Limbaugh and Hillary Clinton. He is a unique man, with a unique story to tell.

    Christopher says: "One man's quirky journey through life"
    "Wow, a fan is lost!"
    Overall

    I have listened to Mr. Medved for sometime and although I don't always agree with his views, I had always thought Mr. Medved a principled man who acts on a strong series of ethics. Reading this revealed that not only are his ethics inconsistent, but the inner arguments used to make his many points are extremely selective. It does not seem as if he has come to his conclusions through a series of experiences (ancedotal incidents or not) and his real reflection on them.
    Medved makes the mistake of setting up his oligarchical position and then selectively pulling experiences from his past to try and justify this position. The moths have laid havok to the fabric of Medveds arguments, and I must reluctantly admit that through these holes I have seen the Emporer's new clothes.
