Y

Y is for 'Yossarian'.
Catch-22 has been the bane of my reading life. Never have I tried so many times to read a book and failed. The worst bit is that i have been recommended this book my so many many people that I know and readers that i respect that I really want to read it. But I just can't! It is so frustrating. Yossarian is the principal character and I wrote about him here because I need inspiration to read about him in this strange book which doesn't follow a proper timeline of events!

A Catch-22 for me!


I'm writing every day of April for the A-to-Z April Blogging Challenge 2012. I'm writing of characters of fiction that are immortal and touch hundreds of lives everyday...

I am with you on this book. I had a hard time reading it, too.

Hahahha, I feel your pain. There are just some classics that fail to capture one's imagination or attention. For me, it was Moby Dick, which tortured me in 11th grade Lit. The irony is that now I teach lit part time. But I would NEVER subject my students to Moby Dick.

@Susan, Sonia: Hmmm, same boat then
@Tony: I KNOW! So many people, so many good sane readers say the same!
@JoJo, Catherine: I LOVE Moby Dick, sigh! The travails of reading :)
@Damyanti, Nelson: Thank you!

Catchy name for a book! Sounds intriguing! I've been there myself- not being able to get through a book- so I can relate.

Trekking by during the A-Z challenge! Pleased to have trekked your way!

I am also your new follower!
