The longest read

On Sunday, I finally managed to finish reading Catch-22. It has taken me something close to 4 years to actually pull this off including one restart after being halfway through it. In fact, after restarting, it has been less than an year. That in itself says a lot on what I think of this book.

The problem with the book is that it is extremely disconnected. The chapter titles are mostly irrelevant. In fact, the last 20% of the book is very different from the earlier 80% to the point wherein I believe two different people have written this book. The last part is extremely linear and actually made me want to read through it.

I'd prefer Catcher in the rye any day over this.
