Topic: House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
Anybody read this - or tried to to read this?
Bought it a few years ago - impressed by the crazy and curious typeface and lay-out. The reviews on the cover obviously helped.
Got about a third through and found it disengaging - and when the main threat of this 'horror' book turned out to be a house that was bigger on the inside than what it seemed on the outside, hardly the most terryfying thing known to man, I decided to bail.
But the book is sitting on my book shelf, calling out to me, that design and layout looks as interesting as ever. I am thinking of having another stab at it.
But I'd be really interested in knowing if anybody else has any experience of this critically accalimed book.
People say I'm bonkers - just because I've been sectioned under the Mental Health Act of 1983
