In my opinion, beats the film by a landslide. It's no wonder Ken Kesey had such issues with the film, the book is in another league. The way Kesey presents life in a mental asylum through the eyes of somebody with mental illness is fascinating, the brilliantly appropriate and iconic line "it's the truth even if it didn't happen" will remain one of the most memorable quotes for me. To go into further analysis would only spoil the story but to put simply, one of the best books I've ever read.
