CATCH-22 has its own extraordinary character - and its title has entered the dictionary. Moving between hilarity and horror, it is outrageously funny and strangely affecting, a microcosm of the twentieth-century world as it might look to someone dangerously sane. The story of a handful of the wildest flyboys of World War II, their tight little Mediterranean island, and their loose Italian women, CATCH-22 is a novel of war and peace, of beauty and the beast within all men. The Catch-22: soldiers who won't fly a plane into combat must be crazy, but if they ask not to fly on the grounds that they are crazy, they must be sane. Heller's novel celebrates the pluck of its protagonist, Yossarian, who refuses to comply with the war's insanity.
"Vulgarly, savagely, bitterly funny . . . . A dazzling performance." (The New York Times)

About catch-22(in case you don't know):

Catch-22 is a satirical, historical novel by the American author Joseph Heller, first published in 1961. The novel, set during the later stages of World War II from 1943 onwards, is frequently cited as one of the great literary works of the Twentieth century.[2]

The novel follows Yossarian, a U.S. Army Air Forces B-25 bombardier, and a number of other characters. Most events occur while the airmen of the fictional Fighting 256th (or "two to the fighting eighth power") Squadron are based on the island of Pianosa, west of Italy. Many events in the book are repeatedly described from differing points of view, so the reader learns more about the event from each iteration, with the new information often completing a joke, or setup, the punchline of which was told several chapters previous. The narrative often describes these events out of sequence, and are referred to as if the reader already knows about them.

It's a bit old maybe,but still listenable.Enjoy it.
