Years ago when House of Leaves was first being passed around it was nothing 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 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 bookI was an RA my junior and senior years of college One year I had a good friend of mine living in my building and upon one of her visits to my room I put The House of Leaves in her hand telling her that she should read it A couple of days later I was in my room awake at some unholy hour due to my vampiric sleep schedule and there's a knock at my door As an RA this is a rather unsettling experience On the other side of that door could be a drug overdose suicide attempt food poisoning or any other host of problems we're warned about as RAs So tentatively I open the door and am relieved to find that it is not some horrific medical emergency but simply my friend Except my friend looks haggard Her hair is unkempt there are bags under her eyes and she is slouched forward breaking her usually uite nice posture In her hand is The House of Leaves We stand there silently measuring each other up and then my friend rears back and throws the book at me then walks away Such behavior is not terribly unusual for this friend of mine so I make a note to ask about this later and then go back to bedThe next day I call up my friend and ask her what exactly was the deal I hadn't slept in two days she said That damn book kept me awake I couldn't finish it I couldn't sleep with it in the room I had to get rid of it That book fucked me up To this day she still can't bring herself to finish reading the book And soThe book has an amazing way of crawling beneath your skin and taking root When I read it my sleep schedule already astoundingly bad became even irregular and bizarro I started looking at things differently The world changed Not in any big way but there was a definite shift and that's the way this book works It comes at you sideways People who just see it as a gimmick in my opinion are trying to hit the book straight on when you just have to give into it It's like music which isn't surprising seeing as how Mark Z Danielewski's sister is the recording artist Poe who came up with her album Haunted in tandem with Danielewski's writing of House of Leaves There are sections of this book I found so surprising and affecting that I had to put it down and give myself a minute to take in what I'd read and go over it in my mind Every person I've ever met who has read this book has had something to say about it something personal than just Oh yeah I liked that or It's overhyped There's a visceral reaction this book can elicit and I find that fascinatingI was talking to a friend of mine yesterday and she mentioned something David Mamet said once something along the lines of When you leave the theater wanting to discuss the play that's a good play When you leave the theater wanting to discuss your life and the world that's art I like that definition and I think it applies to House of Leaves Conversations about this book never stay on the book they branch out into other areas and interests they can't help bu

TEXT House of Leaves

House of LeavesWho not only found themselves in those strangely arranged pages but also discovered a way back into the lives of their estranged childrenNow 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 appendicesThe 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 Looking for a spooky book to read around Halloween I was recommended this book by several others on a message board I freuent uite a few people mentioned its brilliance and the fear it put in themAfter reading it I could not disagree The story is this a family moves into a home and begins noticing physical features of their house changing They begin to investigate which leads to a new doorway and hall appearing where there was not one The husband being a world class explorer and filmographer decides to document the new house and in doing so creates a documentary ala The Blair Witch Project But the book has a couple stories within the story It is written from the point of view of some young slacker who breaks into this dead old man's house and takes the notes for a book the old dude is writing The book and all of these notes are his reactions to watching the documentary filmThe old man's ramblings reads like a textbook replete with tons of footnotes fake references poems rantings But we don't get to just read his reaction or simply walk through the documentary we have to suffer through the slacker's constant juvenile side stories and crazinessThe premise is brilliant and flipping through the book the first time I was pumped at the prospect of the book The effort Daniel put into this book is exhausting to say the least This had to have taken countless hours for the detail to all of the fake references uotes drawings and footnotes but sadly at the center is a stupid story that goes no where I was never scared but rather annoyed NOTHING seems to happen And as soon as the story begins to move we get a long winded worthless conversation from our main character Nothing is ever explained nor finalized This is seriously one of the most boring meandering monotonous books I have readWhile reading the book I found a message board dedicated to the book and its absolute greatness It took all I had not to log in and uestion the taste and objectivity of these people but if they like it who am I to pee on themI do not recommend this book but if you do read it and turn out to enjoy it please enlighten me as to what I missed as I fought falling asleep reading these boring passages
