one of those books you won't forget, about the struggle of the individual against the system.
For the inmates of the mental institution in this story there hasn't been a change in their lives for a long time and they've got nothing to look forward to. When McMurphy makes the change from state prison to mental institution he triggers a lot of events...

It was raining books again today when the mailwoman came ;-) Another book from Plinius, this time I'm first on the list. I have four bookringsbooks and -booklets before this one, so it may take awhile before I start reading it. I'm getting a bit tipsy from all these bookrings and mailwomen who hand over and put books in my mailbox. I just love it!

I just could not get into this book.
I'm taking the book to the bookcrossing meeting at bookshop de Zevensprong in Tilburg tomorrow. PetraO will take the book to Tijgetje (thanks). Happy reading!

Petra send it to me, thanks!
I'm glad there aren't a lot of people in this ring so I can take my time... I have a couple of other rings still waiting to be read.
I hope I'll be able to start soon though.

It looks nice, it smells nice and old, it seems promising...

This book has just arrived at the Lost Book Island pulling in with all its suitcases and paraphenalia for what is hopefully not a long stay. It has been well over a year now since this book has gotten a journal entry and it is wondered just what has happened to this book and if it will get the chance to continue on the bookring journey that it once started so long ago.

Here at the Lost Book Island books get the chance to rest and relax in the shade of broad palms and also the opportunity to run and play in the tropical sun. Hopefully, this will be all that is needed to get this book on the move once more and on its way to new readers and future journal entries.

Wow, that was a loooooong vacation for this booklet, I'm sure it has enjoyed it! I've never seen the movie based on this book, but have wanted to for years and just never taken the time to do it... I guess it's a good idea to read the book instead. Thank you for sending it to me, Plinius and thank you for the nice postcard, very appropriate for bookcrossing!

Wheh, I'm glad to have read this book! Too bad none of the other participants in this bookring have, I would have liked to read what their feelings were about it. I thought it was a quite impressive and yet entertaining book. You can feel that the end is going to be dramatic, yet I couldn't guess what would actually happen. It's fascinating to follow the struggle of McMurphy against the "Combine" and how he keeps charging at it, coming up with new ways again and again and how he changes dramatically how the patients on the ward react to the allmighty Big Nurse. A beautiful, yet sad story.
Thank you very much, Plinius, yet another classic read!

and home again, thanks Owlet, also for the kittencard. One of my namesakes looked like that. I forgot to say love to your owl-chick.
