This is one of those books I was forced to read in High School. They were in such a rush to move on to the next book I don't remember reading more than a chapter or two. So here I am checking it out years later. I can't believe how wonderful, funny, sad and relatable Catch 22 is! Yossarian may be the character the plot evolves around but that amazing cast of whack-jobs characters surrounding him are priceless. Colonel Korn, Colonel Cathcart and every other commanding officer are delusional. Chapter 8 was so funny and perverse I snorted in public...repeatedly! The Chaplian & Major Major made me so sad. Orr was wonderful and oh I could go on. This is what they mean when they call a book a Classic!
