Review
"Never has a book been laughed and wept over so many times" (Guardian)

"To my mind, there have been two great American novels in the past fifty years. Catch-22 is one" (Stephen King)

"Catch-22 is the only war novel I've ever read that makes any sense" (Harper Lee)

"The war novel to end all war novels" (Independent)

"Blessedly, monstrously, bloatedly, cynically funny and fantastically unique. No one has ever written a book like this" (Financial Times)

From the Inside Flap
Joseph Heller schreef met Catch–22 de oorlogsroman die alle andere oorlogsromans overbodig maakt: origineel, bitter, vulgair, geestig, spitsvondig en ontroerend. De zwarte humor, de absurde logica en de onvergetelijke personages, zoals de bommenrichter Yossarian en de gewiekste messofficier Milo Minderbinder, maken het tot een onvergetelijk boek.

De pers over Catch-22:
- ‘Catch-22 staat nog altijd recht overeind met zijn cynisme, onbedaarlijke humor en horror, die permanent in elkaar overlopen.’ – de Volkskrant

- ‘Een absurdistische roman over de oorlog.’ – nrc.next

- ‘Een must op je leeslijst.’ – Hebban

- ‘Zwarte humor en kolder, komische satire, realisme en een onthullende, tegendraadse karaktertekening zijn de hoofdingrediënten van deze lijvige roman die de lezer steeds weer op het verkeerde been zet.’ – NBD-Biblion

'Catch-22 is the only war novel I've ever read that makes any sense' Harper Lee

'To my mind, there have been two great American novels in the past fifty years. Catch-22 is one of them' Stephen King

Set in the closing months of World War II, this is the story of the bombardier named Yossarian who is furious because thousands of people he has never met are trying to kill him. His real problem is not the enemy-it is his own army which keeps increasing the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service. If Yossarian makes any attempts to excuse himself from the perilous missions then he is caught in Catch-22: If he flies he is crazy, and doesn't have to; but if he doesn't want to he must be sane and has to. That's some catch...
