~He decided to live forever or die in the attempt~

Jul 29, 2010 09:46 AMRead

What is the logic behind action? We get up everyday and do the same mundane, yet necessary activities like spending time in the toilet, breathing, eating and sleeping etc. If a person decides to abandon the aforementioned activi...Read More

Its your perspective with which you start reading this book that assures, what you are going to get out of it; if you read it as just another funny book, well.. there is lot to laugh about, but if you really think a little deep and put yourself in the shoes of these characters facing the heat of...Read More

I bought a 1970 edition of this book, published by Dell Publishing. First of all, I want to say that this book is for those who think insanity is must in life. Guys who seek spiritualism or something that will help, will find this boo double Dutch. This one is a complicated story of an US Army c...Read More

I purchased this book and red once. To be straightforward with all you tender peruses, I don't much respect War books, nor do I remain by the title of my audit. For the most part, I trust War is genuinely Hell.Be that as it may, the previous Winter, in the holds of an episode of semi despond...Read More

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.T...Read More

Books have been a source of knowledge for many centuries. There is atleast one book written on every single topic under the sun. Books are not only written to educate, they are written for leisure and even for the metamorphosis of the soul.There are a hundred categories to choose from when it comes to books.

How often have you used the term “Catch 22” in life? Have you ever thought of the genesis of this term? We can search for the genesis but while trying to interpret the same, we are at a loss. Is it something beyond description?It is something like invoking logic in an illogical manner! Or it...Read More

Take him outside and shoot him

I first heard of the phrase Catch 22 from a client. He was trying to explain to me the rather oxymoronic predicament we found ourselves in at that moment. So sure enough once had enlightened me on the meaning of the phrase I forgot all about it. But as you might have guessed so far I am a person...Read More

A touching comedy

'Catch 22' Word History:According to the book, the word ‘Catch 22’ stands for the law that enables the American Defense Bureaucrats ‘the right to have a right to do anything anyone can’t stop them from doing’.After the release of this book, the word ‘C...Read More

Catch 22

Mar 14, 2005 07:27 PMRead

''Catch 22'' is universal and omnipresent. But to simplify - Catch 22 is what we call no way out situation. And to explain it, what better than a funny and fictional plot designed by Joseph Heller.My reading of the book began with a bit of tumbling and grumbling. The initial read was difficu...Read More

I HATE CATCH 22. I hate it so much that, that if I could, I would buy/snatch/steal all the copies of this book ever published. I would make my bed out of it (it would take around 600-700 paperbacks for it ),my pillow (around 50 paperbacks, I like my pillows high and large ), the rest I would use...Read More

The only catch is all you need

Oct 07, 2004 02:58 PMRead

?It?s written in catch 22 that you cannot see catch 22?The above line is the hallmark of the book. The book reveals the bitterness of the author with the war. The uselessness of war and ironies that war can create.I can?t seem to get over this book. I don?t know how many times I have rea...Read More

The phrase ?Catch-22? didn?t exist until this book coined it in 1961. The author, Joseph Heller inadvertently added it to the English language when he used it to describe an American regulation governing pilot?s required number of combat missions.The rule was this: Pilots could only be groun...Read More

World War 2. Americans in Italy wait every day for the next mission.Some people are just crazy about it, others detest the entire business.And for those who detest it there are only two ways of getting rid ofit: a) you could get killed, or b) you could get grounded. So, thesystem works in a way ...Read More

Catch it if you can

It's been a long time since I read catch-22 but since nobody who reads catch-22 forgets it anyway, I guess it's fine.First off catch-22 is hilariously funny often unreasonably so. there is a crabapples and horse chestnuts incident that still makes me laugh hard real hard. ok before I g et ca...Read More

Satirical masterpiece

Oct 12, 2003 05:53 AMRead

I was bored before I could finish the first fifty pages, and I told so to the guy who had recommended the book. He said, ''Carry on till about a hundred pages, and if you don't find it appealing, drop it. It's not your kind of book.''Catch 22 may or may not be your kind of a book. But if you...Read More

Heller's novel

Mar 16, 2003 12:11 PMRead

There was a time when reading Joseph Heller's classic satire on the murderous insanity of war was nothing less than a rite of passage. Echoes of Yossarian, the wise-ass bombardier who was too smart to die but not smart enough to find a way out of his predicament, could be heard throughout the co...Read More

One of the greatest ever !!!!!

Mar 11, 2002 04:43 PMRead

Black humour is not everyone's cup of tea but if you are so inclined then this is one book you can't afford to miss at any cost. I first read this book many years back and have been kind of revising it every now and then. the plot is intricate but the characters are simple and the novel is par e...Read More

I read this book over the past summer, and I must say it was amazing, by far one of the best social commentaries I have ever read... and believe me, I live for stuff like that. Admittedly at first glance the book is a little hard to understand, but after a chapter or so you get used to Mr. Helle...Read More
