Just finished Robert O’Connor’s Buffalo Soldiers. Not exactly Catch-22, but then I couldn’t finish Catch-22, so there is something to be said for that. All in all I found the novel dark and satirical, though I would not call it funny. At times it verges on saying something great or profound. Apparently a movie was made from the novel; I’m tempted somewhat to add it to my netflix queue. All of that said, for a first book I can’t complain. I would probably read the author again. 6/10.
