Heller is a literary genius,
This review is from: Catch-22 (Paperback)
I'm an A level student and so being one among a group of people who tried to read it and suceeded was pretty fulfilling, many people complain that the book is difficult to read because of it's seemingly eratic style. Just remember the author has done everything for a reason and the pieces slowly fall into place.
Catch-22 is a wonderful (and sucessful) attack on the folly and human suffering of war. Satire, cynicism, and tragedy all play their parts, and the result is a hugely imaginative book that makes you laugh, manipulates the your stereotypes and challenges your opinions of war.
