Does /lit/ have any tips for reading Catch-22? Everyone I know who has read it said it was hard to follow at times and had a difficult time getting "hooked" by it at first. Some have even stopped reading and had to pick it back up at a later date. Besides powering through it, is there anything else I can do?

Keep notes?

It wasn't that difficult. It's not in chronological order but it's easy to figure out.
It's very funny and I got into it immediately.
I say just start reading.

After every slow and boring bit there is sooner or later a funny bit, ebbs and flows.

>Some have even stopped reading and had to pick it back up at a later date.
That's the case with tons of such books.

Usually the characters you can't keep track of are the less important ones, and you will be easily able to differentiate between the 'important' ones

Don't stress it. It's a supremely funny book.

man, it's not rocket science, just read it

Sounds like you've surrounded yourself with plebs, OP. Nothing wrong with not reading much, of course, but nobody who's read, say, the other books on /lit/'s starter list would have any trouble with Catch 22. Also it's immediately engaging and fun.

If you're an experienced reader then Catch-22 shouldn't be difficult.

I'm super pleb tier reader, but don't worry. I didn't get it at first but a few chapters in and I started to follow the book well enough to understand and laugh at how ridiculous airbase 27 is haha. almost done I will probably finish before the end of the week!

you'll get hooked up because it's funny, you'll have a hard time keeping up with/remembering all the characters though
