I'm a little ways into Catch-22 by Joseph Heller. It's been a little bit of a challenge so far... But I always try to refrain from formal analyses online until I've read it and interpreted it for myself.

Not usually! Only if I find it particularly terrible or dry.
that is great man. off late, i have been stopping many books in the middle as they are terribly dry
