Fantastic read the descriptive and narrative allows us to meet, know and feel all chartacters in the book the fog is symbolic and the way that the system made people actually turn mad from the repression handed down.
A great read, an easy read and a classic that should be read

A brutal but optimistic testament to the consequences of a society where the majority rules over the minority. Kesey writes with humor, sadness, and insight as he develops the stories of flesh-and-blood characters that capture the readers heart and never let go.

Boisterous, ribald, and ultimately shattering, Keseys work is the seminal novel of the 1960s that has left an indelible mark on literature. Here is the unforgettable story of a mental ward and its inhabitants, especially the tyrannical Nurse Ratched and Randle Patrick McMurphy, the brawling, fun-loving new inmate who resolves to oppose her.
