The book was a well-written character study on the part of almost all of the characters. This is one of the widely regarded aspects of the book that holds water. Nurse Ratched, (Nurse Wretched, perhaps?) the totalitarian commander of the insane asylum where R.P. McMurphy finds himself, has widely been portrayed as a figure of evil, or at least one of obedience to the law because it IS the law. Never in the work, suspiciously, are we given the opportunity to question whether Ms. Ratched truly doesn't have the patient's interests at heart.
