    paulkid: Me, I think that true stories are the most absurd. For me, "In Pharaoh's Army" may not be as funny as "Catch-22", but it's close and definitely has made me consider my own serious outlook on life a little less, well, seriously. See if you agree.

Not just a cheap attempt to imitate Heller's talent-slash-luck, Eastlake may well have surpassed his masterpiece with this long-last classic. Read alongside Dispatches to maximize pleasure; then continue your newfound, inevitable addiction to all things Eastlake, because he really is that good--and he really is that inexplicably, undeservably unknown.… (mais)

I tried really hard to like this book. It was unique and fresh and had many moments of mirth but it was very slow at developing a plot; so slow that I ran out of patience when I had read 50% of the book and the story or plot is yet to start.
This review will be highly skewed towards the negatives (cause I left it midway); however, I am consciously trying to include some positives as well.
One thing that really struck me when I was reading the preface was the review of a petulant reviewer that this book seems to be screaming to its reader and though I was sceptical as to how that was possible; it was one of the aptest insights about this book. Catch-22 is a story of Yossarian (whatever I have read till now) who is desperately trying to protect himself from dying as everyone is out there to kill him. He is repeatedly getting stuck in participating in a war he has no interest in cause one of his seniors keep on increasing the number of mandatory flying trips before he can be relieved. Not only this but almost all the events in this chirpy war tale is due to random events and idiosyncrasies of the cast involved. Though it is a fun read with deep insightful moments about the futility of war you do not feel any connection to any person what so ever. This lack of connection is felt acutely as you progress and made me almost despair of a storyline. Maybe this book was too random for my taste. This book also dwells in extremes, it introduces a positive incidence and then twists and turns it into something negative by overusing it.

All in all, it is an enjoyable read. The only thing that acted against it is the size of the book and the lack of emotional contact with the casts.

A classic book, that you hate reading, but can't put it down. A book that flows from chapter to chapter but jumps all over the place in time in mid sentence. A book that describes serious incidents in the war but is light-hearted. Respectful to the men who served in WW2, but also disrespectful at the same time. Some characters you love, some you hate, some you love and hate depending on what chapter you are reading. A book about how the corporate world is run very similar to the military. Favourite character - Major Major Major Major... The Catch, you are allowed to leave, but you can't.. ( )

I gave up. This was just too dated to finish. ( )

For a lot of this book, it's just ridiculous. I mean the men don't want to be in war. They try to come up with every way possible to get out. The weird rules always block them. It's crazy and humorous, but then at the same time, people are dying. I guess war really does feel this way when you're in it. ( )

"A wild, moving, shocking, hilarious, raging, exhilarating, giant roller-coaster of a book"

"the best novel to come out in years"

"doesn't even seem to be written; instead, it gives the impression of having been shouted onto paper.... what remains is a debris of sour jokes"

"Catch-22," by Joseph Heller, is not an entirely successful novel. It is not even a good novel by conventional standards. But there can be no doubt that it is the strangest novel yet written about the United States Air Force in World War II. Wildly original, brilliantly comic, brutally gruesome, it is a dazzling performance that will probably outrage nearly as many readers as it delights. In any case, it is one of the most startling first novels of the year and it may make its author famous.

A portrait gallery, a collection of anecdotes, some of them wonderful, a parade of scenes, some of them finely assembled, a series of descriptions, yes, but the book is no novel... Its author, Joseph Heller, is like a brilliant painter who decides to throw all the ideas in his sketchbooks onto one canvas, relying on their charm and shock to compensate for the lack of design.

There was only one catch... and that was Catch-22.

This island of Pianosa lies in the Mediterranean Sea eight miles south of Elba. It is very small and obviously could not accommodate all of the actions described. Like the setting of this novel, the characters, too, are fictitious.

"Sure, that's what I mean," Doc Daneeka said. "A little grease is what makes this world go round. One hand washes the other. Know what I mean? You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours."

Yossarian knew what he meant.

"That's not what I meant," Doc Daneeka said, as Yossarian began scratching his back.
