House of Leaves, by Mark Z. Danielewski
    #4553032 - 08/18/05 09:22 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Has anyone read it?
The text itself is intense but there is so much more to the book that blows me away. The soundtrack that Danielewski's sister made that goes along with the feel of the book, the hidden messages buried in the text, this isn't just a book. It is like a puzzle that never ends. I am not yet finished but I am already impressed. I hate to say it but because of this book, many of my favorite authors now seem lazy to me.
If you haven't read it I suggest you pick it up!!!

I love this book! I spent $40 so I could get the hardcover.
What a trip. You try to explain it to someone some time. It's impossible.
"No, it's like a research paper about a movie, but this guy's reading it. No, he knows the movie isn't real! This old blind guy...fuck it"
Just the idea of the house being alive and constantly changing scared and intrigued me.
Next what you need to do is listen to Poe's album, "Haunted". It is made to be in sync with the book. It's based on it cause Mark Danielewski is her brother. If you PM me I have the MP3s.

My friend who first recommended the book to me got really into analyzing every aspect of it. Did you figure out the whole SOS business? The list of photographers names on the side column's of each page...the order of letters or something spelling out SOS...i dunno a better way to explain it but it is intense. It is almost as if the main character is trying to get out of the story, or the author. I suppose it is just however you want to interpret it all.
I dunno...INTENSE!!!!

such a wonderful book, or whatever it is :smile: it's one of those books that has become a companion with me since, has a presence in my mind...like a favorite song or scene from a film...

but i did not like his second book...it's like he kept doing all the cool weird shit but forgot about having a readable story in there somewhere...i hope his next one is like the first was...

but even if he retired now, he's written one of the best books ever...
