I would have to say that Joseph Hellers Catch-22 was at least enjoyable to read There were several aspects about it that made it good and bad at the same time First I think the most important thing aspect to look at is that Heller makes death a traditionally sickening topic a humorous event It is humorous because of the way he illustrates who is crazy I assumed that Yossarian was the insane one in the beginning Now I cant say that I am sure I like how this book makes the reader think Who really is crazy Does anyone know Yossarian is doing anything he needs to to survive Does that make him insane In my eyes he is living on instincts the way he should The threat of death keeps him going He is not insane So who is insane the reader the writer I dont feel that I can answer that If anything I think all of the above It is neat to see how one would act when faced with death I think what Heller was trying to say is that when someone knows they are dying nothing makes sense to them When we see people that know they are dying we think that they dont make sense So we cant really know who is making sense Its very tricky in that way This at least kept me awake and thinking while reading it I think the main conflict of the story was between humanity and the rules We are forced to do something by law then we pay the ultimate price for it The best part is that we do it all for the idea that we are protecting those laws The idea of a Catch-22 is interesting Its like saying A person has the right to do anything that another person cannot stop them from doing This catch appears throughout the entire book It was quite evident
