Description

Hilarious and tragic, at the heart of Catch - is a savage indictment of twentieth century madness, and a desire of the ordinary man to survive it.
-The greatest satirical work in the English language since Erehwon- Philip Toynbee, Observer
-Blessedly, monstrously, bloatedly, cynically funny, and fantastically unique. No one has ever written a book like this- Financial Times
-Not only the best novel to come out of the war but the best novel to come out of anywhere in years- Nelson Algren, The Nation
-Wildly original, brutally gruesome, a dazzling performance that will outrage as many readers as it delights. Vulgarly, bitterly, savagely funny, it will not be forgotten by those who can take it- New York Times

Catch- 22 is a very popular book by Joseph Heller. The book was first published in 1961 and is set on the Mediterranean Island. The theme is set on the later stages of World War II from 1943 onwards. Catch -22 is known as a satirical history novel and also one of the best literary works of the 20th century. The best thing about the novel is that the time line develops, along with the plot and there is a distinctive non-chronological style of narration described from different character's points of views. The events may seem out of sync to the reader but that is apparently, the main attraction of the novel. The plot revolves around Yossarian a B-25 bombardier in the U.S. Army Air Forces and few other characters. Most of the events occur when the fictitious gun men are based on the island of Pianosa, in the Mediterranean Sea, west of Italy. There is however, one striking quality about the book. The readers get different perspectives on the matter as the warring parties (individuals) are very different from one another. The novel was recommended to me by an aunt, who in her youth had read the book and loved it. On reading the book, I realized it was well worth the time and money spent and I have passed it on to friends who are either reading the book or opting for the movie. This is certainly a must read and I recommend the book to lovers of situational comedy, humor-in-uniform and the likes.
