Read from October 12 to December 01, 2011

I got stalled on this book a couple times because of other books but I really enjoyed this classic. It was one of the most entertaining and funny books I've read, albeit in a very twisted sort of way. The characters are so ridiculous and nonsensical but put your conventional sense of normalcy aside and you'll get to see how Heller's world of Catch-22 can in fact serve as an allegory and criticism of society, bureaucracy, and war itself. I also enjoyed this book a lot because of the language Heller employed. I can't remember the last time I've read a book that made me turn to a dictionary that much! The vocabulary in this book is awesome!
