Book Review: Closing Time by Joseph Heller

I liked Catch 22. Not an original thought. I didn't really like this book, its sequel. Probably not an original thought, either.

This is a shame because, thanks to the wild variations in pace, it took ages to read.

There were some characters who shared their names with characters from the earlier book. There were some far more interesting characters who weren't in the original story, but they all fitted together in the end, just like in that clever film Love Actually.

There was also some heavy-handed satire and some in-jokes.
