An amazing journey through the mental labyrinth,
This review is from: House Of Leaves (Paperback)
A challenging book on so many levels, it is not only technically complex but the myriad stories have you swinging back and forth. To me this book acted than more than just a novel, it raises psychological questions, it challenges the perceptions we have and it makes you delve ever deeper to try and understand what is happening.
This book can and will take over your life, searching out the cyphers, trying to find out what in the story is real and what is not. So don't expect this book to remain neat and tidy, you will find yourself scrawling on the pages or marking out letters that could possibly be part of a cyphers.
I also love the multiple aspects of this book, I bought POE's album "Haunted" a long time before I read the book, I latter found out that the album and the book are intertwined - Poe is Mark's sister. So further listening and reading are continually opening more doors with this book.
