it's no catch-22
I loved Catch-22. Since reading it I've come to regard Heller as a brilliant writer which is what tempted me to Closing Time. However it isn't as good as the first, they never are. The characters are dull and doesn't grab your interest like in Catch-22. I found some of the jokes unoriginal. But of course when Closing Time is forced to be compared to Catch-22 it is a expected... A quote from Heller 'When I read something saying I've not done anything as good as Catch-22 I'm tempted to reply, 'Who has?'.
