Set in Italy during World War II, this is the story of a bombardier named Yossarian, a hero who is furious because thousands of people he has never met are trying to kill him. Joseph Heller's unforgettable novel is a hilarious and tragic satire on military madness, and the tale of one man's efforts to survive it. This fiftieth-anniversary edition celebrates Heller's masterpiece with an introduction by Howard Jacobson, rare images from Heller's personal archive and essays by the likes of Norman Mailer, Anthony Burgess and Christopher Hitchens. "Reading Catch-22" is nothing less than a rite of passage. Here, at last, is the definitive edition of a classic of world literature.Hide synopsis

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 ...
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 ...
The opening of this book is hilarious. It's funny all the way to the halfway point, and then it is no longer funny.
Having served for 22 years as a military member, I can honestly say that even though my profession was war, I still rate this book as one of the best in modern fiction. That may seem ...
My esteemed colleagues who do not like this book: you are not alone. But, really, this book is probably one of the most thought-provoking in our English language. If it evokes a strong emotional response, whether good or bad, then it means that the author has gotten his point across.
I love this book ...
