I just finished reading Catch-22, which is just amazing. Just wanted to know the opinions of those who've the sequel how does it compare to the original? Don't know whether dishing out money to buy that book if its not worth it.

The sequel (Closing Time) was horrible. At least the first half was, I didn't even bother finishing it, that's how much it sucked.

Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb

Yea, Heller tried to hard to make a strong sequel. He had already expressed most of his ideas in Catch-22 and "Closing Time" just falls way short in comparison. It's not the worst book ever- just compared to its predecessor

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

i could not for the life of me get into catch 22.


i read the first few chapters.

i dont know what it was, but it was just such a drag to read.

I read Catch 22 and I thought it was amazing, I actually had no idea there was a sequel. I don't even understand why Heller decided to write a sequel, Catch 22 wrapped up quite nicely on its own.

I did a forward roll into a backflip, caught the les paul and blasted out a face melting version of stairway to intimidate this mentally retarted kid on life support in a wheelchair that was trying to play it through an MG. What a loser.

It was his only major publishing. So he forced it out for money and besides he had expanded on his ideas...for the worst
#13
Any other books of Heller you people would recommend? I haven't really heard anyone talk of any other of his books. Is he a one-hit wonder or what
#14
you mean Catch 33 by Meshuggah? kickass, buy it

Catch 22? It's one of the coolest, most disorganized, comical stories written. Give it a shot, it's an easy read.
