    "I could not put this books down. It spoke to the "outcasts" like me who live on the fringe. Every story was interwoven and connected back in shocking and surprising ways. I think I finished it in one weekend. I had to see where it all connected. "

    "This book is amazing and mind blowing! You are taken on a journey that is unlike any other book I've read. It's interesting to say the least and a book that is definitely meant for a particular subset of people. "

    "I was shopping for the best ergodic books and came across this product. It's absolutely wonderful and exactly what I was looking for!"

    "While I really liked the book, it's not something that I would consider in the same genre of horror as Stephen King's novels. I think that people should read the book anyway since it'll broaden your horizon on what you consider to be horror. "

    "I have never felt so scared while reading a book in my life as I was while reading House of Leaves! I don't think I slept well for a week after reading it, and every completely explainable household noise made me jump like a wimp. Can't recommend this book enough!"

    "This is a great horror book that requires you to actually read the physical books. It takes advantage of the medium and tells various stories depending on how you read the book. This is definitely one you want to just read and not look into the story much. "

    "This book no doubt sounds very creepy!"

    "This is a horror story but not a regular one by Mark Danielewski. The main character Johnny Truant is interesting but it takes a while for the story to get going. This is not a light read at over 700 pages, so it is unusual in several ways. Some of the pages have only one word and others are a list of names. This strangeness made me want to read more and find out what was happening. And it was pretty strange and broke a few rules in my opinion. Don't want to put any spoilers in here but to some , this book is an obsession. "

    "This book isn't for the faint of heart. It can be scary at times, but it is written very intelligently. I loved this novel. The book will suck you in and you won't stop until you reach the final page. "

    "House of Leaves is a fantastic ghost novel. It follows Johnny Truant and his journey finding the notebook of a dead man. I could not stop reading this book once I picked it up. I was kept on the edge of my seat with every page. The plot is refreshing and exactly what I look for in a ghost novel."
  • Doris Holmes

    "I have no idea what I read. The book is multiple stories and perspectives about a house that's bigger than it seems. Words are all over the place, nothing is ever reliable, and you feel unsettled through out without ever really knowing why. But it's a great read. I can't recall a book manipulating my feelings like this one did."
  • Craig Weber

    "The best weird fiction book is House of Leaves by Mark Danielewski. Johnny Truant, an employee in a LA tattoo parlour, finds a notebook kept by Zampano, a reclusive old man found dead in a cluttered apartment. The notebook contains interviews of people of an underground subculture and its denizens."
  • Kenneth Evans

    "This book is actually terrifying. It's a slow burn, one that frays you at the edges and chips away at your defenses. I wasn't scared in the traditional sense, but I became afraid of the dark. I stayed away from open rooms and didn't go through mysterious doors. This book isn't just something you read, it's a transformation you undergo."

    "This is one of the most heavy, engaging books that you will every read. This book will keep you on your toes and turning page by page long through the night"
  • Eric Cook

    "An interesting book with an interesting development process. The story itself was decently original at the time, using a sort of found-footage interview angle that is very common in films of the last decade. The book itself is written in a way that there is something for almost anyone within it's pages. There are issues of family, supernatural elements and horror among other themes. Maybe not the BEST postmodern novel, but definitely a great read worth your time!"

    "I am big into fiction. If you like psychological thrillers to I am right up your alley. House of Leaves hit every spot for the literature fan too. This book really honed in on what it meant to get lost in a book."

    "House of Leaves is quite a read. It's so strange and different compared to other novels that I've read. I really couldn't put it down after I started. Reading it felt so hectic, yet so enjoyable at the same time. Amazing read. "
