Teaser: Catch-22

The Teaser is hosted at Should be Reading. Be sure to go there for the rules and more fun!

I have to say I am having a real hard time reading Catch-22. I just can't get into it. I don't care that Yossarian can't go home and has to fight in the war. I don't care that the guys in his squadron are seriously screwed up. I'm making myself finish it though for two reasons: 1) It's on my Whitcouls Challenge and 2) It's on a lot of people's favorite books list, I'm determined to figure out why. So, here's my teaser for the day:

"Where've you been?" he demanded rudely and disinterestedly without looking up.
The chaplain colored and turned away evasively. "I went for a walk through the woods."
p. 285

I've seen this on alot of 'Best Of' lists too. I hope it gets better for you.

I've made myself finish books before but I much prefer the hard to put down ones.

I had a hard time with it too but ultimately i was glad I did. mostly because there are so many references to it in pop culture

Have never read this book. And it doesn't sound like one I would like. So I guess I'll have to pass on this one. Hope you make it through! Have a great day!!

I hate when that happens! I hate forcing myself to finish a book that I'm not enjoying. But, hey, you never know it may get better.

Hang in there!

Happy reading!

Ooo - a sneaky chaplain - what's not to like?

You know - I know that was a book that was on our list to read in high school, but I never did read it!

Interesting teaser though - Here's my Teaser! ~ Wendi

I've never read this, but it is distantly on my list (kind of toward the bottom, though...). Thanks for the teaser. I just might try to read it at some point.
