Has anyone read Mark Danielewski's "House of Leaves"?
Fantasticly strange and creepy book. It's as much fun to read as it is to decipher. Which becomes neccesary considering how it was printed.
I've read it! I found it completely engrossing. Mark Danielewski did a great job...and yes, it really IS creepy. Most books that were made to be scary don't pull it off, even when they're well written, but this one certainly does:) I wish I could describe it better, but there aren't words.
And yes, as for the deciphering part: I've never had to read a book upside down before, nor have I seen so many footnotes go on for quite so long. What a bizarre piece of work.
Wow, thanks for the recommendation. In the past, I've been looking for creepy books. Nothing really seemed to do the trick. I will definitely be getting this book tomorrow.
If you enjoy it, you should post back here again and tell me what you think. I so rarely encounter people who've even heard of it...I never get the chance to discuss it with people who've actually read it.
I finally got it! starting it tomorrow.
it is well written, and some of the pages are kinda crazy. however, i am not far enough in to really say much. I have been a bit busy lately, so i have not gotten much reading done, or for that matter posting on here, as my -80 point record shows.
I'll have to look into reading this! I'd never heard of it before until now
I've heard of it, and it does sound interesting.
However, the repeated affirmation of how creepy it is warding me away from it.
After looking it up, I must admit I find it completely fascinating.
I'm going to see if I can find it in my local bookstores, then online.
Will let you know once I read it.
