Catch 22

by Joseph Heller

It was a really difficult book to read, and a bit too subversive for me as I like relaxing books that are fun to read. Thgis didn't make me laugh and the size of it was a bit off putting. In the end I couldn't finish it and I always finish every book I read but this was too hard for me to get into.

Probably my favourite book of all time, characters described so cleverly that you know them by reading just one sentence of a description. Powerful, leftfield and brilliant.

Very cleverly written, great ideas and very funny. A book i will never forget.

Didn't find this hilarious - just found it dull, the characters were one-dimensional and apart from the basic premise it didn't have much to say

An excellent, hilarious novel examining the pointlessness of war. The book is riven with subversive humour, and I couldn't put it down.
