10 out of 10

This has been on my bookshelf for ever! Absolutely brilliant. It's one of those books you continue to reference in everyday life.It's brimming with such pathos you are laughing and despairing all at the same time. The Colonels, the Generals all of them such unbelievable characters, you pray no such individuals are anywhere near positions of authority! Yossarian as the main character is the one you are supposed to root for throughout this sorry episode, but he is a creature of circumstance and is also deeply flawed. Will return to this at a later date

Yet another wishlist book, thank you so very much! I've been wanting to read this book forever now, because I've heard so much about it. (Oh, and I never mind about old copies, I even prefer the smell of the old ones to new books.) Big hugs and kisses from Belgium!! :D

This was an absolutely insane book! It wasn't an easy book to read by far, I've had to tackle it chapter per chapter. But I still enjoyed it. Sometimes I just wanted to smack Yossarian, but he was so completly pitiful that you felt sorry for him just a bit.
Thanks for sending it to me jules5!

(Reserved for Oedde.)

Thank you, Moriquen, for this book from the list of 1001 to read before you die! I have read the first couple of pages and was intrigued. I also like your review and that of jules5, so I'm looking forward to reading this! Like you, I don't mind it being an old book; I like the fact that I know it sat on jules5's bookshelf for ages before moving to Belgium, and then to Romania :)

It's reserved for elle311's son now. So I'll start reading it next.

During the last months, I read the first five chapters but didn't enjoy it very much. The language, especially the dialogues, maybe the setting isn't right for me either - I don't know. I'm making this available in case somebody else wants to read it (and I'm contacting elle311 too) but I hope to go back to it and try to continue reading.

elle311 doesn't want it any more, and I still have no patience for it. So it's staying on my shelf of available books, waiting for new readers.
