Catch-22 by Joseph Heller

I enjoyed it but expected more. The book sat on my shelf for many years at four different homes. Wow, I hadn't actually realized how much moving I'd done since 2005. Ch-ch-ch-changes. Anyway, the book was good, but I wasn't blown away. The best part for me was the assorted characters and their various antics. Heller must have had a hell of a good time writing this, as it was a hoot to read at parts. Many good turns of phrase, but to the point of repetition, which may have been Heller's point in regards to his thoughts on war.
