A great, and depressing, story. It has a lot of recurrent themes.
Catch-22 is a catch-22 all the way through. Every character is a contradiction tearing two different directions, and every situation is inescapable: is it a dream, or surreal purgatory? Deja vu is ever present too: the same scenes replayed in different tenses and perspectives. You are trapped in the experience, just as the experience is trapped in you.
