NOT YOUR USUAL MASALA NOVEL !!!!!

If you are looking for unreal and utterly stupid entertainment then look elsewhere.... If you are looking for a page turner which you can read by plugging on to your ear buds then look elsewhere.....
Although this is supposed to be a hilarious one it certainly is much more than that..... with every joke Heller tries to crack there is impending irony behind it and until and unless you get that second meaning you will turn down this book after 50 pages anyway !!!!!!

Packs A big SOLID PUNCH !!

Seldom do we come across a literary work that has had so profound an effect on the society that its title has become a catch phrase which is often used. Catch-22, which literally means a â??vicious cycleâ?? or a â??no win situationâ??, is a novel which brilliantly captures a sane manâ??s vain attempt to break free from a world gone insane.

Itâ??s a satirical war novel that moves, shocks, delights, makes you laugh and makes you feel pretty much every emotion while offering you a new insight t...

hilarious to the core!

This book is so well- written, that it feels like I am watching the characters live a their lives.. get annoyed by people..pray for their luck to change etc.

It is so hilarious but I am serious way.. I cant put it in words. But anyone who hasn't read a funny-well-written book in a while..and wants to get his/her mood up, must read it.

Loved it.

MUST READ MILITARY SATIRE

Catch 22 is probably the best book I have read in my life. It is a fictional account of World War 2. Catch 22 is a satire, which reveals dark truths through the medium of humor. The down-to-the-smallest-detail characterization is superb and it is through his precisely etched characters that the author's voice speaks. Catch 22 is extremely engrossing and grips your interest from start to finish - in fact, once you start reading the book is unputdownable. And you will read this book again and a...

Read it for the characters, not the story.

Must read for those interested in understanding the intricacies of the human behavior.
Yossarian, the central and only sane character in this book, is at the center around which all other characters contrast as insane in same way or another - the human nature is deeply explored in this book.
The book is one of the best satire ever written on the human nature. The events in this book are mostly a result of greed and ambition of the superiors and how it destroys the lives of many. The book is ...

The spirit gone, man is garbage.

Upto a certain point, I could not make the head or tail of the book. But kept dredging. Then things started to become clear slowly. And lo! It is one of the most entertaining (despite initial boredom) books I have ever read. Comic and tragic -- at the same time.



Some of my favourite lines:

The spirit gone, man is garbage.

... I'd like to see all these things sort of straightened out, with each person getting exactly what he deserves. It might give me some confidence in this universe.

In...

Worth reading!!!!!!! Truely Hilarious!!

One thing for sure.... This book is definitely not everyone's cup of tea. The very first time I started reading this book, I couldn't manage to go beyond 60 pages. Every paragraph contains a new character and everything is in disorder. Its nothing but sheer torture to continue. I hated it so much that I fell in love with it! I re-started the book right from the beginning and figured out the recipe to enjoy the book! Don't try to remember the character names, just enjoy the humour! Every thing...

Catch 22

A classic book studded with unique characters who will make you smile in any circumstances. I am reading this book for the fifth time. It is a classic book that elevates your mood, makes you smile after every few pages you read and if you can visualize the characters the fun is beyond compare in fact it is incredible ! Suggest for everyone beyond 18.

Catch 22

Yosarian Lives!
It feels a bit pompous to review a classic like Catch 22...
A superbly humorous and a scathingly indicting tale of one man who knows that everyone is out to kill him...even the people and the country he is fighting for...and he decides the reason for war is not good enough for him to die for!! As the author says in the superb preface, "Yosarian will outlive all of us!"

Hilarious to the end............

Never read a book more hilarious and serious than this and it can't be characterized as Black comedy.
If you find the above sentence contradictory wait till you read the book...

The books tells about the chaos of war in a very unusual way.

I have heard people saying they couldn't finish the book because they couldn't make out any sense after reading first few pages. Well people this book doesn't just tell you the story about war it transports you into it and when you are first time in a una...
