What did you think of House of Leaves
? I thought the story idea had a lot of potential, like how creepy would it be to come back from vacation and find that there was a new room in your place?
In reality, I found it was like a hipster horror novel. It had great ideas but just too over the top with some of the literary devices. I was much more compelled by the main plot with the NVR, even if it was a fake academic account, than I was by following Johnny Truant's journey into madness caused by the book.
