Catch-22

Post by Guest on Fri Jul 22, 2011 1:07 pm

So like, was thinking something related to catch 22 like situation (like: he won't get laid unless he loses weight, he won't lose weight unless he gets laid). So thought of checking out where the term comes from... didn't know it's a novel, that too set in WW2 times (a topic I can never get enough of)...

So ya, another duh tracy moment right here.

Am so gonna download it on kindle... was waiting for a long time to figure out what book to read next.

Anyone read it? Reviews?

well, my thoughts are totally random. I said 'he' instead of 'she', coz I knew if I said 'she', you will come promptly and ask, 'you are not getting laid tracy?'

Yes. Just get it on iBooks or Kindle now. Although it is cheaper on paper than the digital version.

The book has a great reputation, but takes some getting used to at the beginning.

My thumbs up - do read it - as Charvaka said, it takes a little while to get used to but, you will love it esp. if you liked "Hawkeye Pierce" from MASH...
