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.… (mer)

    macart3: Those who read the "House of Leaves" will recognize how the house also consumes people in "The Haunting of Hill House" and the feeling that there is something unearthly inhabiting the house.

What can I say about this book? Only a few words: confounding, exasperating, arcane, esoteric, intriguing, passionate, personal, humane, revelatory. It was one of the most interesting and memorable reading experiences I've ever had. Highly recommended, but only for the very patient and open-minded. ( )

Having never read a book quite like this one, Sara appeared to be intrigued. After holding the book sideways and upside down and reading page after page of footnotes by three different people (Zampano, Truant, and the unknown Ed), she thought this must have something to do with deconstruction and Derrida and a redefining of the 21st century novel as she knew it. (127)

As one anonymous observer noted, “It is obvious from the hesitation she showed in commenting on this book on the Book Group FB page that she was reconsidering the choice that this was a good group read for the members of that circle.” (129)

In an interview with one close friend, it is revealed that she found the horror to be somewhat muted. “I looked at the book and thought this could be a lot of fun to tackle but the sheer length of it! I mean, who has that kind of time? I might listen to it, but then I realize I won’t get the full effect. Anyway, Sara plowed through it – got to give it to her for being so determined – but I think she was disappointed it wasn’t scarier. Perhaps she thought after 700 pages she ought to be kept up at night, afraid of the dark.” (130)

(131) At this point, the narrative appears to be missing several pages with a few torn pieces of paper that I’m unable to put together in any order. After struggling with this, I decided I couldn’t tackle any more of this without a few glasses of a good red and a marathon of Walking Dead – Ed.

Time of death xxi. (that is still in the introduction)

I'm just not in the mood I guess. It feels like an investment of time that I'm not willing to put in. You have to follow clues, decipher messages, maybe use a magnifying glass at times. And, the footnotes which you should read as they come up, sometimes have footnotes.

The narrator of that intro talks like a guy I don't want to spend time with. not in the mood

The dedication says "This is not for you." I would agree though I am happy that the people who like this kind of book have access to it. I can imagine it can be fun if you enjoy stuff like this and probably even great fun as a buddy read.

p.s. the physical book, idk, it's awkward. Rather large for a paperback and heavy. I tried. I brought it out with me to the auto shop and hair dresser. I read it while waiting. I even brought it to bed. It's an odd thing to complain about but it's not a book to curl up with. It's an arm workout.

Second time I've tried to read this and I just can't get into it.

While I appreciate the complexity and inventiveness, story-wise it was ultimately disappointing. ( )

House of leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski runs to 710 pages: 13 pages of introduction, 535 of text, followed by three appendices and a 42-page, triple-column index.
tillagd av KayCliff | ändraThe Indexer, Hazel K Bell (Aug 4, 2009)
 
... let me say right off that his book is funny, moving, sexy, beautifully told, an elaborate engagement with the shape and meaning of narrative. For all its modernist maneuvers, postmodernist airs and post-postmodernist critical parodies, ''House of Leaves'' is, when you get down to it, an adventure story: a man starts traveling inside a house that keeps getting larger from within, even as its outside dimensions remain the same. He is entering deep space through the closet door.
