Underthinking It: Catch-22

This was a book by an American guy.

What is this crap? They think they're cool because the numbers are tilted. Give me a break.

I have read this book and I still have no idea what a Catch-22 is, or why it is number 22. Are there 21 other catches? Are there catches that are past 22? I don’t know.

Not recommended.

    And like the Yossarian dude (who’s Armenian or Asian or whatever) should go all Call of Duty up in that bitch, but all he does is talk. YAWN!

      Def. thought after Snowden chapter that they needed to balance-patch the body armor. One flak hit should not do that. Flak is OP.

    The same goes for Slaughterhouse Five. What happened to the first four? Is this like Star Wars where they tell the middle episodes but never got around to the prequels?

      I feel the same way about _Look Who’s Talking Too_. It doesn’t make sense for them to call it that unless there is already a movie called _Look Who’s Talking_. Maybe someday they will make a prequel.

    The 22 in Catch 22 was actually inspired by Heller’s cleaning lady, whose birthday was October 22nd. It was originally going to be Catch-18 but Heller wasn’t satisfied how it sounded.

    I used to rake leaves for said woman when I was a kid. I know it’s April Fool’s and all, but this is actually the story behind it.

    Heller decided to tell the story in nonsequential order. Don’t ask me why.

    Get past some similar idiosyncrasies, and you may find it a powerful book about the right to stand up for your own interests within large, inefficient organizations.
