Catch-22 by Joseph Heller

Ricky Messmann, January 12, 2012

This might be my favorite book I've read ever. I found myself laughing out loud throughout. Some parts made me uncomfortable but were simultaneously hilarious. It's quite powerful as well. There are characters like a Major named Major Major Major who decides he is never going to see anyone again, and Colonel Cathcart who simply cares about being on the cover of Lifetime Magazine and raises the number of missions for his soldiers to more than twice the required amount, and a soldier named Dunbar who thinks that time goes slower when you are bored, so seeks out boring situations in the attempt to lengthen his life. Breathtakingly brilliant and impossibly hilarious stuff.
