Simona recommends One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey is a book I loved, because it reminds me how short life is, and that I should not be afraid to do what I want to do and to experience as much as possible, enjoying just the beauty of being alive. It is the story about people's life in the asylum. They are treated like they are a great danger for society and should be watched carefully all the time in order not to mess up. All the rules that are imposed on them smother them and their life consists pretty much only of breathing, eating and sleeping. People are not meant to live in such suppression.
