his week I’ve ended up previewing a few different books, from Stephen King’s ‘Misery‘ which I bought on the iBookstore on sale, to a book called The Disappeared by Kristina Ohlsson which I will review next week, and Joseph Heller’s classic Catch-22, which I’ve been meaning to read since high school. It’s worth mentioning that it was never actually required reading in my high school otherwise I actually probably would have read it a lot sooner.
What it’s About (lite): Catch-22 is a satirical look at World War II, and a bomber pilot who would rather not be a part of it.
Thoughts: The classics are sort of hit or miss for me, while books like Around the World in 80 Days, caught my interest as a child, I definitely had my share of ‘classic literature’ that did not in fact pique my interest. Catch-22 however is in something of an entirely different category of novel as far as classic literature is concerned and honestly I have to say so far I’m pretty impressed. Overall this is definitely a book I would continue without hesitation.
