day_tripper and I are BFFs, so I can safely post on her behalf.

She read the book a few years ago, but she doesn't quite remember the specific details. However, she is fond of the film and remembers thinking the book kicked some major boo-tay.

A small blurb from the book:
"The Big Nurse tends to get real put out if something keeps her outfit from running like a smooth , accurate, precision-made machine. The slightest thing messy or out of kilter or in the way ties her into a little white knot of tight-smiled fury. She walks around with that same doll smile crimpled between her chin and her nose and that same calm whir coming from her eyes, but down inside of her she's tense as steel. I know, I can feel it. And she don't relax a hair until she gets the nuisance attended to - what she calls "adjusted to surroundings.""

The details Kesey includes are so rich in detail, James Lavelle. Dost thou not agree?

I do, actually. This quote sums up the Big Nurse's character really well.
Great writers have the ability to create characters that come alive, they just take you to places you've never been.
I loved this book, loved the different ways the inmates spoke, and the end was just shocking.
The book is 10 000 times better IMO, however, it' still a decent film, Jackie boy was really great in it.
I thought the indian's first personal singular narrative in the book made it a bit more personal (while in the movie it's different).
