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)

I'll need to think about this one for a while, but I can say that it isn't as good as it thinks it is.

Here are some other thoughts, in no particular order.

I made the mistake of looking at the wikipedia page on this one, to see if it was a book I would enjoy. It didn't really answer that question, but I saw a comment about how some felt HOL was a commentary about academic criticism. That colored my view of the book, though it was kind of like saying The Hobbit was about hobbits. That is, it was obvious.

The problem here, regarding the academic criticism, was it read like a metaphor stretched too thin. At a point, it was over done without adding anything to the various narrative threads. Academic writing is worthy of ridicule, but it doesn't take 700 pages. Make some choices, Mark.

HOL made me realize, in its shortcomings, how brilliant The Testament of Gideon Mack truly is. That is a well-structured novel: multi-layered, well-written, unpretentious, engaging. HOL is only a few of these, only some of the time.

I liked certain aspects of the book that weren't exactly "readable." The pages of nothing but citations of examples was something that made me laugh out loud, but probably only because I'm guilty of having, on occasion, gone looking for extra sources to prop up my own writing. Not my finest hour. Nicely played, Mr. Danielewski.

For sure, this is a book I'll think about for a while to come. Not necessarily in admiration, though I find myself already having asked a former student to let me know what she thinks. I did like it (three stars ain't bad), but it doesn't seem like something I'll return to, except perhaps as an example of excess.

I think, the next time someone mentions that my reviews are rambling and disorganized, I'll simply say "House of Leaves."

I can completely see how this book would inspire a cult following. It is disjointed enough, mysterious enough, to invite people to puzzle over it. I just fear that there isn't really anything there. Nothing to puzzle together so much as an attempt to make something puzzling. I stopped caring about Johnny about halfway through the novel. There was a mystery, I just didn't care if it was ever unraveled. This book very early on seems the type that young boys read and then profess to "get," and use to deride as ignorant those who "don't."

That, then, is probably my biggest complaint. Though this isn't a mystery in the traditional sense, there is enough of a conundrum that the reader is invited to sort it out. I don't think the clues are there to sort it out satisfactorily. The house itself is completely estranged from any sense of reality, which is fine, but as such can't be much more than a metaphor. Further, it has to be so because there's no other way (satisfying, in my mind at least) of connecting the two main narratives. Obsession, perhaps, but really? That's been done, and better. Mental disease? Too obvious. There was no real idea, either, to be contemplated. Danielewski obviously read Borges, but "Library of Babel" presents a legitimate conundrum, whereas this is just a poorly-lit TARDIS that's meant to be the abyss staring back? I don't know.

I feel like I'm being overly negative. Mostly, that's because beyond what I liked and didn't like, I felt like this book took too much of my time. It could have been half as long and twice as effective. The Barrett's Book of Familiar Quotations at the end seemed like another underdeveloped idea tacked on. Just too much. Eh. Maybe I'm just one of the ignorant.

I suppose I would recommend it for the experience. ( )

I will have to think on this one for a while. It’s been on my to-read list since it came out when I was in high school. ( )

My husband has recently gotten into the music of Poe (I know, I know. He’s over ten years behind) and I was explaining to him why Haunted was so good. This, in turn, launched us into a discussion about Mark Danielewski’s House of Leaves. My husband doesn’t read. It’s not fun for him. He loves stories, but prefers to listen to them rather than curl up with a book or his kindle. Honestly, I like to believe that I read enough for the both of us. Trying to explain experimental fiction to someone who doesn’t read is more difficult than you’d think, but taking him through House of Leaves reminded me of what an incredible book it was.

House of Leaves is a story within a story. The main protagonist, Johnny Truant, inherits the manuscript for a movie called The Navidson Record from Zampanó, a blind man he cared for. As Johnny begins to edit the manuscript we read it along with him, and explore the house somewhere in Virginia that grows and creates serpentine labyrinths from within. The further Johnny reads into The Navidson Record the less tenuous his hold on reality becomes, until he is noticing similar occurrences between the manuscript and his own life.

I’m a huge fan of anything that creeps me out. No, really. I don’t like gory horror, because it isn’t frightening to me. Monsters? Meh. They don’t do it for me. I’m all about the buildup, the eerie crawling feeling you get at the back of your neck. Psychological thriller? Yes, please! House of Leaves had this in spades, and it’s probably the reason that it hovers in the back of my conscious. Despite being so stunning I had to force myself to read it in tiny doses for as long as I could. It had that sinister factor I adore, and not with just one story. Oh, no. House of Leaves interweaves two narratives that would have been unnerving on their own and combines them into a result of such great unease that you can’t help but shiver. This is only heightened by the novel’s typography. The way the text warps and changes, it mimics the maze the characters find both in the house and in their own minds.

I really can’t recommend this book enough. There is something about the way it was written that appeals to me on so many different levels. If you haven’t read House of Leaves, go out and get a copy immediately. Don’t download it onto a reading device. Go find a physical copy. And, please, don’t read it in a tea/coffee house. It’s a hipster magnet, so unless you want to be caught in a discussion about the finer notes of Pabst Blue Ribbon read it at home.

A idea-laden and, at times, beautiful book in the postmodern literary tradition that can't be fully captured in text, which is to imply that it would have been eminently more effective as a multimedia work.

If you're a postmodern literature enthusaist and enjoy fictionalized academic writing, then you won't be disappointed. ( )

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.

I still get nightmares. In fact I get them so often I should be used to them by now. I'm not. No one ever really gets used to nightmares.
