Catch-22 - Joseph Heller I really could not get into a groove with this book. The circular, disjointed way the story was told frustrated me to the point that I gave up 2/3 of the way through. It was intentionally written that way, of course, but since I didn't have to read this, I opted out.

Even though I didn't enjoy reading it, I think the circular structure of the story and the circular, nonsensical dialogue were effective techniques to convey the circular reasoning and nonsense of Catch-22, the central regulation in the story.

I may read the last 1/3 someday, but I doubt it.
