I'm only on page 97 and I'm already convinced this is a must read. This is one SCARY book. Working out why is just as puzzling as the text on the pages. It makes all other books seem lazy.
Not scary at all. Unless you think that tons of footnotes and appendices are scary. (Book club)
House of Leaves / Mark Danielewski ~ Had The Blair Witch Project been a book, and had it been written by Nabokov, revised by Stephen King, and typeset by the futurist editors of Blast, the result might have been something like House of Leaves. With the discovery of a pseudoacademic monograph called The Navidson Record, written by a blind man named Zampanò, about a nonexistent documentary film--which itself is about a photojournalist who finds a house that has supernatural qualities.
