Despite the fact that this book was evidently written for a more mature and experienced audience I still enjoyed reading it. This book was a positive influence on me because I ...
  • Joseph Hellers Catch 22
    634 words
    I would have to say that Joseph Hellers Catch-22, was at least enjoyable to read. There were several aspects about it that made it good and bad at the same time. First, I think the most important thing aspect to look at, is that Heller makes death, a traditionally sickening topic, a humorous event. It is humorous because of the way he illustrates who is crazy. I assumed that Yossarian was the insane one in the beginning. Now, I cant say that I am sure. I like how this book makes the reader think...

  • People In The Book
    531 words
    The God of Small Things is a book that is beautifully written, but unfortunately wraps itself in continuing bleak situations. Roy writes about a dysfunctional family who breaks cultural rules, and pushes at the boundaries of convention and of history. With this breaking down of all these structures and orders comes a pervasive atmosphere of sadness throughout the book.
