This book really resonated with me, because I too have to deal with an authority figure that is eerily similar to Ms Ratched. I saw the movie before reading the book, and was interested to find that the book is narrated by The Chief, who is fairly marginalised in the movie. I loved The Chief's delusions of machines and robots in the hospital, and I truly empathized and felt for all the patients in the ward. Thus, I was really annoyed and upset by McMurphy's end, although the Chief getting away somehow made it better.
