    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.

Wow... that was quite something. An insane war story with clear influences on the likes of MASH or Blackadder Goes Forth. However while very funny in places it also has a dark-side, and when it gets dark it gets REALLY dark! Towards the end it also felt a bit Brazil or 1984. Apart from some very occasional moves too far into the surreal this is perfect, and i say that even though this isn't a genre i enjoy. ( )

The story of a group of fliers in the Mediterranean during World War II. John Yossarian, a pilot, is furious because thousands of people he has never met are trying to kill him. Yossarian is also trying to decode the meaning of Catch-22, a mysterious regulation that proves that insane people are really the sanest, while the supposedly sensible people are the true madmen.

This novel is related to history of Attacks of America. ( )
  alishkakhan | Oct 18, 2021 |
It grew on me. It took quite a while (basically until the last few chapters) for me to appreciate the book, with all its endless jokes but it comes together in the end. For a while I was reading it piecemeal but when I finally dug in and read quite a bit at a time it really picked up. In many ways this feels similar in town to another anti-war book I read, Slaughterhouse V. Although I feel like a lot of the "gags" are overdone the book really leaves a strong impression of the author's disillusionment and contempt for the military and war. Goes from very dark to very light very quickly. ( )

"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.

The enemy is anybody who’s going to get you killed, no matter which side he’s on.
"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.
