Catch-22, Joseph Heller, absolutely not a novel success … “According to common standards alone it does not loiter is to so-called good.”  Last point on the catch -22 Published New York Times began so, even if its author must then recognize this is a work of the most bizarre. Curiously, one of understatement, avoid, with system character dense with events arranged not in linear order, with humor dark and violence is rife, with the absurdity fill every dialogue and situation, catch -22 is a great novel, was more than great, it is a contemporary masterpiece, not only on the world war 2, not only about war, but about human , and human behavior.
“It was love at first sight. Right first time they met Yossarian was ignorant chaplain to foolishness “: as every sentence beginning in the work of Heller, first sentence of the Catch -22 mines to the author, fully, and within a half hour, almost the entire story in his head, with defensive character, circumstances, although the name Yossarian is yet to appear. Yet, drafters wrote from 1953 until 8 years later, Heller recently published his first novel, and so always in a trap-22 lifetime.
Catch-22 start in a way not normally the case, in the middle of the hospital, in the middle of the so-called narrative in chronological order, in the midst of despair and urgency of Yossarian distraught effort to survive.
Catch-22, with a focus on character Captain John Yossarian, is about a league in the US Air Force World War 2, stationed on the coast of the Italian island of Pianosa outside. Instead of having to fly a certain number of times, the flight bombed the enemy, when completed, was discharged, if still lives, soldiers of Confederation under the leadership of Colonel Cathcart, repeatedly bringing the number of flights, from 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70, 80. the consequences associated, full of serious, increasing the number of times of flight to impress Range on, to take the photograph from above ground scatter bomb scene is beautiful, it is the soldiers, slowly roasted alive himself.
In the situation seemed to be deemed insane pure then, one realizes that this is an arcade crazy of a maniac, taking advantage of the so-called patriotism, so-called loyalty, to eradicate the lower their level or not? Readers fall right into a tragedy: a mad collective farms. As the narrator narration by a voice provinces butter, “Everywhere in the world, the guy on both sides of the battle lines are down to what people are telling them is their country, and apparently nobody busy mind, at least none of the boys are down it. “
Catch-22 is a crazy fun camp where no one calls himself crazy and they all think other people crazy and turn the characters are different characters called crazy, but crazy is the final boss of Yossarian. 228 from the crazy, with characters constantly to each other is crazy, does “you’re crazy,” “they all madmen,” should “insanity is contagious,” should “Clevinger think Yossarian mad, “” McWatt was crazy, “” Nately also crazy not least, ‘ “Orr was one of those guys crazy,” “Hungry Joe was crazy,” “Dubar was crazy,” “sergeant White Halfoat think doctors Daneeka crazy . “They turn to each other crazy weapons, convincing each other that you crazy, I’m not crazy. But they still turn to fly, completed 25 flights, pushed up 30, 30 flights fly always, pushed to 40, flew 40 flights. A submission not object to confusing mystery.
