Happy New Year 2013! Many things other than reading have captured my attention since my last entry in December. I seemed to have lost whatever few minutes I have had to read in the past. Hence, it took me nearly a full month to read Catch-22, a novel by Joseph Heller.
I was first introduced to Catch-22 when I was in high school and I selected it from the summer reading list. The only thing I remembered from the book the first time around was Major Major. Major Major is still one of the more entertaining aspects of the book, and will probably be what I remember from it years from now. This book just wasn't entertaining, friends. The critic on the back of the text says the book is "bitingly funny" and I just don't see it. Perhaps I'm too far removed from the realities of a war to truly understand the humor. I'll treat that as a blessing.
