Even though I have seen the movie more times than I can count, I still managed to like this probably more than the movie. It feels even more believable and that, combined with the decision of who to narrate, makes it pretty easy to accept Kesey's analogy and, well, forget that there is a slightly clunky analogy. There's very little about it I didn't like. The only thing is I felt like the ending was a little telegraphed, but it's impossible for me to know if that is true since I know the ending very well. A classic. That's 4.5/5 not 4/5.
