    Catch-22 is set in the closing months of World War II, in an American bomber squadron on a small island off Italy. Its hero is a bombardier named Yossarian, who is frantic and furious because thousands of people he hasn't even met keep trying to kill him. (He has decided to live forever, even if he has to die in the attempt.)

    Phil says: "Phenominal Reading - Story and Damn Funny"
    "tedious drudgery"
    Overall

    This was a tedious and repetitive novel that I brought me great joy to finish only because I had been tortured by its monotony for 42 agonizing chapters. The author attempts to lampoon the idiocy of war by constructing an environment were every character is unrealistically moronic. It has the depth of plot of "I Love Lucy", and the dialog of "Gomer Pile". Wading through the chapters of dialog between intellectually challenged characters was like watching Abbott and Costello's "Who's on First" 42 times in a row. I can't understand why this book has been praised by critics, but than again, I am not a sophomoric pseudo intellectual with unrealized aspirations and authority issues, otherwise reading such a book might make me feel better about myself.
