Years ago, when House of Leaves was first being passed around, it was nothing more than a badly bundled heap of paper, parts of which would occasionally surface on the Internet. No one could have anticipated the small but devoted following this terrifying story would soon command. Starting with an odd assortment of marginalized youth -- musicians, tattoo artists, programmers, strippers, environmentalists, and adrenaline junkies -- the book eventually made its way into the hands of older generations, who not only found themselves in those strangely arranged pages but also discovered a way back into the lives of their estranged children. Now, for the first time, this astonishing novel is made available in book form, complete with the original colored words, vertical footnotes, and newly added second and third appendices. The story remains unchanged, focusing on a young family that moves into a small home on Ash Tree Lane where they discover something is terribly wrong: their house is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. Of course, neither Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Will Navidson nor his companion Karen Green was prepared to face the consequences of that impossibility, until the day their two little children wandered off and their voices eerily began to return another story -- of creature darkness, of an ever-growing abyss behind a closet door, and of that unholy growl which soon enough would tear through their walls and consume all their dreams.… (més)

Warning this book is an experimental writing meta type book! - Just the kind of thing I happen to love. I couldn't help but compare it to Infinite Jest with its heft, copious footnotes, story line involving a movie. I must say I enjoyed this so much more.

The story is much more coherent than IJ and actually after reading it for a while I no longer was even comparing the two. The book's style *is* pretentious & highfalutin but the underlying story/concept (despite the fact very little happens) makes it readable. It's overly clever, yet somehow it comes off as brilliance (more the shiny kind rather than the smart kind) which brings a playful balance to that makes it delightful rather than unbearable.

Its genius lies somewhere in the juxtaposition of over the top nonsense and original ways to express thoughts/feelings.

An example of this was as the suspense grew, the pages had less and less writing on them. This created a frenzied/panicked pace to the reading flipping page after page to see what happened next.

In summary its not a book for everyone but it worked for me, and I know its one of those books that will haunt* me for a while.

*yes this is also a reference to the Poe album as I can't get it out of my head (see now I'm even thinking meta thanks MZD!) ( )

I've been wanting to read this for years now and I devoured it in a total of four days. Now it has left me feeling slightly unhinged. There was just So Much content and clearly not enough brain cells to comprehend all the content.

First off, the formatting of the book made me very uncomfortable (which was what I assume the author was going for). There were times there was so much text on the page it was almost difficult to follow, then the next page there would be one word, and the next page could be upside down. I never knew what to expect from page to page and the author masterfully had me on the edge of my seat while reading this. I've never read a book such as this before. Very unique in almost every way.

I'm still not sure I completely understand all the Johnny Truant and the Minotaur stuff but i'm not going back to read and find out. I have a basic understanding and that's all I need.

So, final thoughts...

Did I like the book? I think so. I've been thinking about it all day and what it all meant...but I think I liked it.
Would I read it again? No.
Would I recommend it to others? No (except if you like to be sufficiently Creeped out then Yeah go for it but prepare yourself)
Am I slightly uncomfortable with dark spaces right now? Maybe.

ALSO, Fun drinking game! Take a shot every time someone mentions The Navidson Record. You would definitely get alcohol poisoning.

I rate this as a personal favorite because it gave me my very first panic attack stuck in a hotel room and totally oblivious to what was happening to me at 17 years old. ( )

a tricky door intrigues a film crew made up of bored thirty somethings. a floridian tattoo artist lives where you would expect. some words are in colored ink.

Annoying. Trying so hard to be clever. I shouldn't have bothered. Maybe I wanted to feel clever for reading it. Content warning: rape

I love J D Salinger's use of footnotes. This book had some clever use of footnotes. ( )

House of leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski runs to 710 pages: 13 pages of introduction, 535 of text, followed by three appendices and a 42-page, triple-column index.
afegit per KayCliff | editaThe Indexer, Hazel K Bell (Aug 4, 2009)
 
... let me say right off that his book is funny, moving, sexy, beautifully told, an elaborate engagement with the shape and meaning of narrative. For all its modernist maneuvers, postmodernist airs and post-postmodernist critical parodies, ''House of Leaves'' is, when you get down to it, an adventure story: a man starts traveling inside a house that keeps getting larger from within, even as its outside dimensions remain the same. He is entering deep space through the closet door.
