Catch-22 – by Joseph Heller

In my quest to read the 100 best novels (as listed in a number of different places), I came across Catch-22. Highly acclaimed by everyone. I got to page 75 and decided that I simply wasn’t interested enough to complete it.  Just because everyone says that this is a great book does not mean it captivates me enough to want to spend countless more hours on it. So I let it go. I’ll have to come up with an “unfinished” category in my tracking spreadsheet.

It tells the stories of a group of soldiers in a flying squadron in Italy during WW-II. The author is funny and descriptive. The story is entertaining.

Maybe I’ll try again some other time.
