new book

I’ve begun reading House of Leaves.

I all ready didn’t like mirrors in dark rooms. Now it just seems to be justified.

        • Like when you need to pee in the middle of the night and you walk into the bathroom and there’s the mirror and… yeah. It’s just a thing I have.
          There’s more darkenss than there should be and I’m not sure everything I’m seeing in the mirror corresponds to the room.

        • It’s fiction, though some claim that parts of it are true.

          It’s about a documentary about a house that is bigger on the inside than on the outside.
          I’m fairly certain that’s all anyone knows for sure.

          It’s very confusing, and involving, and interesting.

    • What is this “finished” you speak of?
      This book has no “finished,” as I understand the word.
      I’ve been living in that book for years now, feeling myself erode.
      The walls aren’t real, or I’m not. Maybe both.
      I’m scared.

      • This is exactly how I feel about that book. I read a friend’s copy once, then finally got it as a gidt. I simply could not get through it a second time, though I tried and tried. It really is a frightening book…The imagery can make you physically ill if you let it affect you. Yeah, I’m weird.


    • of course! I look forward to hearing what you think of it. I linked myself to the House of Leaves LJ community that I saw on your info page. I’m not reading too much there yet, don’t want to spoil anything.
