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.… (mais)

House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski is a 2000 Pantheon publication.

A manuscript, a tattoo employee, an odd transformative house- unusual occurrences, and a mind-bending ride through obsession, love, and horror is all rolled into one long, strange trip!!

I read this book a very, very long time ago. I didn’t get it hot off the presses- but it didn’t take long for word of mouth to reach me.

I’d heard about how very strange the book was, but I wasn't sure if it was a book I would enjoy- but when I saw a copy of it in my local bookstore one day, I picked it up and started thumbing through it. I was instantly intrigued and purchased it on the spot.

It took me ages and ages to read it, though. It was tedious, heavy, literally and figuratively, and absolutely bone chilling.

The history of the book is interesting too- and I can see why it became a ‘cult’ classic. It is by far one of the weirdest books I have ever read.

But, let me tell you- to this day, I still remember segments of this book like I just read it yesterday. It’s a massive book- and while many people will not have as much trouble keeping everything straight- I had to read it at a snail’s pace. I think it took me a nearly a month to read it, maybe longer, if my memory serves.

The story is one that has been analyzed and interpreted every which way- and is another reason it is still read and discussed today- over twenty years after it was published.

What brought me back to this book after all this time? I usually try to read a favorite/classic horror story in the month of October. I have a ‘Flashback Friday’ feature on my blog, and I normally promote my yearly classic via that platform.

Sometimes, though, I find that I will have to write a review because I read the book long before Goodreads, blogs, or writing online reviews was a thing. I did rate the book- but never got around to adding a review…

Until now.

That said, I don’t think I have the time for such a dense and challenging book at this time, and have decided to re-read a different book instead.

I did want to go ahead and leave some remarks for this book as I may want to revisit it in the future.

Overall, this book is a real mind trip, and it seems that folks either love it or hate it. It is controversial and provokes lots of theories and mixed feelings. It seems, too, that readers who devoured the book twenty years ago were more taken with it than those reading it for the first time today. I’m not sure why- although I have a few theories, but that’s a story for another day.

Still, I would recommend it as a ‘Halloween’ read, if you have the time to invest in it. It is a long book and will require your undivided attention. Nothing is spelled out for you – it’s up to you to decipher everything. Despite its age and various execution hindrances, (some will love it- others may find it gimmicky), it will keep you busy, and on edge, I might add on any long, cold, dark night. Your senses, brain and imagination will get one heck of a workout. ( )

I have no idea why I kept reading this book other than I wanted to know how it ended - and it wasn't a satisfying ending. Gave it 2 stars because I was interested enough to continue but now that I'm finished, I did not like it at all. I can see why some think it's interesting, but it was just too much for me with not enough reward at the end. ( )

House of Leaves is quite easily the most stunning book I’ve had the pleasure to read so far. The prose is full of design acrobatics that left me speechless at times. The interwoven stories were sublimely presented. And the ending sent me spiraling down endless stairs of despair because it was over. It’s a book written by a voracious reader for voracious readers.

I felt the central character in the stories was the house itself. Up, down, left, right, sideways, upside down—the house doesn’t respect the laws of physics, instead choosing to bend and twist and make something of its own creation. It’s an empty canvas—a place that represents nothingness yet says so much about the human condition. It’s not a classical monster but is something far more insidious than that.

The other (obvious) protagonists include Navidson, Zampano, and Jonny, all of whom are fleshed out quite a bit. Navidson’s story contains the right kind of horror—ominous, bitter, and sharp. Zampano’s “pseudo-academic hogwash” can be difficult to read at times, but ultimately redeems itself through terrifyingly fictional insight into a fictional movie. Jonny’s represents a slow descent into loneliness and madness without any redemption in sight.

No, you won’t need a Master’s degree in Art, Architecture, Film Criticism, Literature, or any other subjects to read and appreciate this book. No, you won’t need to tear your hair out over close readings. No, you won’t lose your mind over this beautiful book.

Yes, you will have a good time. Yes, you will ask questions, the answers of which only you will know. Yes, you will marvel at the beauty of the layout and typography. Yes, you will wonder why you hadn’t read it earlier.

But most importantly, you will experience something truly special. And that’s all that counts in this godforsaken world. ( )

This book.

This fucking book.

Where to begin?

Well, how about the story at the heart of it, the Navidson story of a man becoming obsessed with the most well-imagined question of a house ever?

Okay, let's start with that. The story, right up until the very end (without spoiling anything, the ending is lame lame lame), is fucking fantastic, and Danielewski not only lets his imagination soar, but he also runs down some possibilities to some fascinating ends. I absolutely loved most of the direct portions of the book that dealt with this. In fact, had this just been the Navidson story, I have no doubt this would have been hailed as probably the best horror novel of the decade. Easily.

Truant's story? Yeah, well...no. Lots of drugs, way too much sex, a lot of rambling, it literally only redeemed itself with a horrifying little anecdote involving a stray dog. But ultimately, no, to me, I felt it added nothing to the story and, in fact, most often completely detracted from it. Detracted or distracted, choose your verb.

The scholarly works/the eleventy-billion mostly pointless footnotes. Um Mark? Not sure if you remember school, but I don't know if anyone ever walked away from any educational course having slogged through the inevitable required reading from coma-inducing text books and thought, you know what? Scholarly text sections would make my scary story just rock!

Spoiler alert, Mark: it fucking doesn't. If anything brought me close to a DNF with this book, it was the side trips down lanes to not just highlight a very minor plot point, but to take that information, pack it into Thor's fucking Mjolnir hammer, and proceed to bludgeon your brains out with it. It's fucking irritating, Mark.

And those footnotes? 400 of them? And they mostly gave no real information or context, they simply served to pull the reader away from whatever part of the story they happened to be reading.

Finally, there's the biggest elephant in the room. The whacky-ass typography and typesetting...

Gonna be real honest here, it felt nothing more than stunningly self-indulgent. And again, any experience that ends with you just trying to read a bit before you shut off the light on your nightstand, but before you get there, your wife looks over at you twisting said book this way and that, from page to page, and says, "what the hell are you doing?" Yeah, that ain't a good reading experience, dude.

Slash five hundred pages of self-indulgent shit, kill them with fire, fix the typesetting on what remains, and package this as a nice, tight 175-page thriller? Yeah, then you have yourself a reading experience.

I'm sure there's someone out there that could tell me why the typesetting isn't indulgent, and how much fun the scholarly stuff was, and how necessary the footnotes were, and how Mark's sister Poe's companion album Haunted served to make this the reading event of my lifetime, but personally, I don't give a shit.

I'll always think of this as a brilliant novella buried in a ton of excess vowel movements. ( )

... 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.
