catch 22

I finally got around to it, and it was great fun. Although lengthy, it never seemed long. The farce was never-ending amongst characters who “had mastered…the handy technique of protective rationalization” in a “world boiling in chaos in which everything was in proper order.” The implications of the story are grave, hilarious, frightening, and utterly comprehensible. It makes too much sense why we lie the way we do.
