At the heart of Joseph Heller's bestselling novel, first published in 1961, is a satirical indictment of military madness and stupidity, and the desire of the ordinary man to survive it.

I enjoyed the opening chapters and the unexpected absurd dialogues. About halfway through the novel, I started to get bored by the repetitive (and hence predictable) story line. Nothing really happens. It's like extending a comedy to a 5-hour-play. Entertaining first, but tedious after a while. I would have preferred spending the second 8 hours on listening to another audiobook...
