Download House of Leaves Book  705 pages è Years ago when House of Leaves was first being passed around it was nothing 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 asWho not only found themselves in those strangely arranged pages but also discovered a way back into the lives of their estranged childrenNow 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 appendicesThe 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 Looking for a spooky book to read around Halloween I was recommended this book by several others on a message board I freuent uite a few people mentioned its brilliance and the fear it put in themAfter reading it I could not disagree The story is this a family moves into a home and begins noticing physical features of their house changing They begin to investigate which leads to a new doorway and hall appearing where there was not one The husband being a world class explorer and filmographer decides to document the new house and in doing so creates a documentary ala The Blair Witch Project But the book has a couple stories within the story It is written from the point of view of some young slacker who breaks into this dead old man's house and takes the notes for a book the old dude is writing The book and all of these notes are his reactions to watching the documentary filmThe old man's ramblings reads like a textbook replete with tons of footnotes fake references poems rantings But we don't get to just read his reaction or simply walk through the documentary we have to suffer through the slacker's constant juvenile side stories and crazinessThe premise is brilliant and flipping through the book the first time I was pumped at the prospect of the book The effort Daniel put into this book is exhausting to say the least This had to have taken countless hours for the detail to all of the fake references uotes drawings and footnotes but sadly at the center is a stupid story that goes no where I was never scared but rather annoyed NOTHING seems to happen And as soon as the story begins to move we get a long winded worthless conversation from our main character Nothing is ever explained nor finalized This is seriously one of the most boring meandering monotonous books I have readWhile reading the book I found a message board dedicated to the book and its absolute greatness It took all I had not to log in and uestion the taste and objectivity of these people but if they like it who am I to pee on themI do not recommend this book but if you do read it and turn out to enjoy it please enlighten me as to what I missed as I fought falling asleep reading these boring passages

Years ago when House of Leaves was first being passed around it was nothing 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 If you want a really good insightful review of House of Leaves that I didn't write go read this one from AerinIf you want to read mine here you goHouse of Leaves isn't one of those tidy little things that holds your hand and wipes your bottom and tells you that you're special It makes you work and what you get out of it depends largely on how much work you're willing to do House of Leaves is difficult at times incredibly complex occasionally pretentious and view spoiler it doesn't neatly wrap up some of the biggest uestions it raises hide spoiler

Is he real? Is what he's telling us true? Wait no I won't get into that a seemingly normal attractive young man working at a tattoo parlour He serves as one part of the dual narrative of this story He is basically informed of the passing of a blind man called Zampanò who lives in the same apartment building as his friend Lude Following this he comes across a trunk of Zampanò's notes and papers about a movie called The Navidson Record a documentary about a family moving into a peculiar house on Ash Tree Lane After moving in Navidson's family discover a hallway that has suddenly appeared and seems to defy the laws of physics it's bigger on the inside See? Not that confusing Except this Navidson record is told in extreme detail by Zampanò a blind man remember who includes tons upon tons of individual interpretations theories and all sorts provided by various critics serving as the intellectual perspective of this gradually terrifying documentary It shows all sorts of characters grips on reality turn tenuous and details their gradual descent into madness with sometimes dire conseuences Except for one thing the movie doesn't exist And I don't just mean in a fictitious manner ie it's a book Sherlock it doesn't exist in the story itself Johnny even says that these critics and celebrities such as King Kubrick Rice have n
