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.

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...

4.5 House of Leaves
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...

4.0 House of Leaves
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...

5.0 House of Leaves by Mark Danielewski
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...

5.0 House of Leaves-Food For Thought
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...
