    So there's a definite cult around this book, and I am one of the many who drank the Kool-Aide and never looked back. Here's a little anecdote that speaks to the possibilities of this book:I was an RA my junior and senior years of college. One year I had a good friend of mine living in my building, a...

    It's like one of those very psychedelic albums from the late sixties, where they do all those funny stereo effects, and all that phasing or whatever it was called - all great fun but you still had to have good songs. As you'll know by now, "House of Leaves" has more tricks up its sleeve than you can...

    Looking for a spooky book to read around Halloween I was recommended this book by several others on a message board I frequent. Quite a few people mentioned its brilliance and the fear it put in them.After reading it I could not disagree more. The story is this: a family moves into a home and begins...

    I wish there were someway that a sigh could count as a book review.House of Leaves is a really, really damn good story. It's about a guy named Johnny Truant who finds a manuscript in a dead man's apartment. Said manuscript is entitled the Navidson Record. It's essentially a dissertation on a documen...

It will not only challenge your ability to hold a weighty tome at numerous different angles for prolonged periods of time as you endeavour to read text which is upside down, back to front and shoots vertically or di...

    "This is not for you."*this will not follow the kind of reviews I usually do, so be prepared for a conglomerate of quotes, self-taken photos and annoying html text. Also this is quite long.All right so not only was I completely mind-blown by this book, I was also overjoyed with the fact that I actua...

    If you want a really good, insightful review of House of Leaves (that I didn't write), go read this one from Aerin.If you want to read mine, here you go:House of Leaves isn't one of those tidy little things that holds your hand and wipes your bottom and tells you that you're special. It makes you wo...

    As avant garde as any novel's got the right to be! It is all about condensing and expanding the parameters of the novel, heck, of the tangible object. It makes a case of molding the form like clay-doh; a book is stationary no more... (!!!!!!)You open the book and a dissection, an exploration is made...
