I'm not quite sure what I just read.On one hand, this is a haunted house mystery. On the other hand, it is a family drama. On a third hand (or on a foot), it is a story by two men(?) who may be losing it.But parts of it are quite scary. Do not read in ebook format.It takes a bit to get into. But onc...

This sort of reminds of what my writing journal looks like. I start a story, then another, then continue, then add a box to add something witty I thought of. At first glance this looks like a jumbled mess written by someone off their meds, but it's good. It takes a lot of concentration. Though, no...

I just finished this book moments ago, and it may be one I have to separate myself from for a while before I can articulate any of my thoughts and feelings about it. But I will say this: this definitely ranks as one of the most fascinating, creative, mind-bending and thought-provoking books I will n...

House of Leaves is an experience. I've decided not to go into the plot, because it, (they?) really can't be fully explained in such a limited venue as a book review. Depending on how you look at it, there could actually be 5 different plots going on, perhaps more, and again: limited venue. After m...

I finally finished this book last night after staying up pretty late. Problem being that after the narrative is finished there's about 200 pages of additional material which I'll probably be sorting through for days. I'm going to need some time to mull things over-there's just so much going on in th...

So here is the thing readers, this is the first time ever I am going to say, do not buy this in e-book format. I am still mad days later that Barnes and Noble does not allow you to return purchased Nook books that have been opened/downloaded. I had several comments about the book they sold not actua...

I've read this book multiple times. It's more like, I've read The Navidson Record multiple times. I can really do without the ribald tales of Johnny's very-straight-dude sex life/fantasies.

I saw this book while at Forbidden planet I've been wanting to buy it for ages so i got it there and then.I think this book is going be one of this book's that stays with me the re...

For me, story is king. No matter what else an author wants to put into his book, if the story fails to satisfy, then the book won't work for me. This is part of the reason why, when I first attempted to read this book some seven or eight years ago, I ultimately abandoned it. It was too much form ...

Quod evenit in labyrintho properantibus:ipsa illos velocitas inplicat.Good grief Danielewski, what have you done to me? There was a time when I may, on occasion, have been capable of at least some form of coherent thought and possibly even formulated constructive ideas. But then I picked up this bo...
