Re: House of Leaves (NS)

  • Personally, I gave up after 50 pages.  I liked the premise, it just felt daunting.

  • It is daunting but I'm about 150 pages in and plan to keep going unless I get too scared (which is a possibility). It's definitely a labor of love and so far it's not my most favorite book I've ever read but I'm interested enough to keep reading.
  • I thought it was pretty... over done?... but I do think it will be a fun book to discuss if a lot of people read it. There's a lot going on.

    If nothing else, flip through it because it is way different than most books. I was disappointed primarily because I wanted to be super scared and I just wasn't. Like, at all. The concept was there, but I think he got too hung up on making an unconventional book and forgot that books, especially novels, generally have storylines.

    No, it's really not good :)  lol. I gave it 2 stars. I wish I hadn't wasted time on it, but I had been curious for a long time and I'm glad I don't have to be curious anymore- I know it's bad. There is a lot to discuss though, so I sort of hope other people read it too.
