Read it two years ago. Found it on accident while reorganizing my parent's second upstairs bookcase (we read alot). Though it was about emmett smith.
Changed my life.
Catch-22 is easily the best book I've ever read, and (even though I'm a snot-nosed punk) will probably be one of the best I ever read. I've reread it so many times over; it's reinspired me to want to write. Closing Time is the perfect bittersweet ending to Yossarian, the finale had me rolling on the floor, more so when I realized that it was published in 1994, and "little prick" reminds me so much of a certain someone .
From there I've gone on to read Something Happened, and am currently reading Good As Gold. Picture This is next.
"He had decided to live forever or die in the attempt, and his only mission each time he went up was to come down alive."
God, I wish I could've met him.
