  • Sane insanity Aug 31, 2014
    by David W

    Once you have read this book, one realises that the widespread use of "Catch 22" to describe a situation so often; could not be further from the truth of the definition as described in this book.
    Read it, and enjoy.

  • A Classic Nov 21, 2013
    by Dr S

    There is nothing to review. A Great book and a Great writer. I lent my copy and never got it back. No bookcase should be without one and so I have replaced mine. It should be read every three years on a regular basis for its humour and insight into life and human frailty.

  • Heller's Book is a classic May 2, 2013
    by Jack W

    Joseph Heller only wrote one book worth reading, but it is very good and a joy to read. My only paperbac k copy is long worn out and I had to have a good hard copy for my library.

  • Really poor copy Sep 23, 2010
    by landshark

    I can't remember how this book was described but I have rarely bought one that wasn't described as at least good condition. This book has dreary brittle yellow pages and an old wrinkled and worn cover. I would describe it as poor at best. I don't presently own a book in worse condition and I have books over 150 years old.

    This book is packed with hilarious characters from Yossarian to Major Major Major. It is written in satire form allowing it to present a ridiculously extreme story based on what would have been current events in Heller's time. While it is admittedly a style so unconventional it turns away many readers, I found it exquisitely fascinating and promptly read it twice through. The randomness of the conversation and plot is bothersome to some folks however I personally enjoyed it immensely, especially style of logic used by many of the soldiers.
