Morris Udall at the Democratic convention I’ve put in so many enigmas and puzzles that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what Ri meant, and that’s the only way of insuring one’s immortality.

It is like a bric-a-brac shop, all monsters and dust, with everything priced above its proper value. This is a reaction one might have when first exposed to House of Leaves of course sans the “son of a bitch” part. This is Mark Z. Danielewski’s first novel, and he devoted 10 years that’s like 10 whole years! House of Leaves is the book which will jump up to you and scream in your face, “look at me! Hey, would you look at me? Do you have an X number of hours to spare to decode me, boy?

Many might find that they do not wish to spare the hours required by this tome; to them the dwnielewski issues a warning right at its beginning, stating that “this is not for you. However, as we know such ofglie are like catnip for curious cats – I mean, seriously, who would have stopped reading right there? Have we all forgotten about all these horror movies where protagonists go exactly where they should not go, ignoring all the warning sings, because they want to “check things out”?

I see what you did there, House of Leaves. The story is this: A man named Will Navidson moves with his family into a new home on Ash Tree Lane, somewhere in Virginia just next to West Virginia where they set all these hilbilly horror movies. Navidson, a recognized photographer a documentarist of war is accompanied by his wife, Karen – a former fashion model – and two children, Daisy and Chad.

Some stress has been plaguing the family of the Navidsons, so they decide to change environment in hope of restoring family dynamics Remember The Danielewsmi Remember how it ended?

Only when they move in they discover that the house has changed: But that’s not it! Soon a mysterious new hallway appears. What does Navidson do? Danielewaki the kids and run out of this scary house like normal people do? No, of course they stay – I mean, if they didn’t we wouldn’t exactly have much to read about.

Like a good horror protagonist, Navidson does exactly what the genre demands of him.

While this might not sound like the most original danieleswki compelling thing on the planet, you have to understand that House of Leaves is all about the execution as opposed to content. Althought the novel has everything and the kitchen sink in it, it’s all about how these things are put together.

See, House of Leaves is a narrative which does absolutely everything to be as unconventional as possible – the story of Navidson, his family and explorations of the house are not narrated by him or the traditional third person omniscient narrator – that would be much, much too simple. The narrative is reminiscent of daniwlewski Russian matryoshka doll: Now, since we are dealing with a recorded narrative, there must be somebody who put it together for us – and there is.

We never get to see the actual Navidson Record – what we get is an academic analysis of it, made by a man named Zampano. Zampano did an impressive amount of research and created a definite analysis of The Navidson Record – analyzing every scene in great detail, offering every possible interpretation, and making footnotes, lots and lots and lots and lots of footnotes.


Another reviewer called the amount of footnotes in this book “retarded” and I can’t really disagree. Even footnotes have footnotes.

So, this Zampano caea must be really proud of what possibly danielewsku his life’s worh, right? Well, he can’t really be – he’s dead. What he wrote about The Navidson Record is discovered in his apartment by a man named Johnny Truant who was out of housing and out of luck, and with nothing better to do went to see the dead man’s apartment.

Here’s the kicker – Truant knows that the decribed film cannot possibly exist, as he finds danieleewski even a mention of it anywhere outside Zampano’s notes – and Zampano could not even see the film; he was “blind as a bat”. Zampano himself described the Record in his analysis as having been classified as a hoax by most experts.

Nevertheless, Johnny is drawn to Zampano’s analysis and begins filling the blanks he left behind – a process which starts messing with his head that and all the drugs he does. Johhny also inserts lenghty footnotes into the text, footnoting Zampano’s footnotes and producing his own – many of which are unrelated to The Navidson Record or are they?

Now, although Johnny is the closest of what this book has to a protagonist, he is not the narrator either – the whole text has been put together by anonymous Editors, of dj we know nothing, and who claim to have never even seen or met Johnny – all matters concerning the text have been discussed via correspondence or in rare instances on the telephone.

Thank God all of these at least have their own font! Can it get any better? The important aspect of this novel is how the text is arranged on the page. Well, at least that’s what we’re supposed to think when we’re reading it. At first the text appears like any other academic journal, but as it progresses And is House of Leaves the book which will make you use the mirror to decipher it?

Oh yes, dear reader, you are holding that book. XKCD, a popular webcomic, does a pretty accurate impression of th structure of House of Leaves – with pancakes. Here’s how it looks like.

There is a coglie amount of humor in House of Leaves. Danielewski really hams it up here: But that is not all. Danielewski hams it even further, making the only expert on the non-existent film blind and deadand gives the task of analyzing his work to the most unreliable of all characters, Johnny Truant, a Bret Easton Ellis-ish character whose junkie lifestyle is such that half the time he is not sure he is even there get it?

Oh God, the footnotes. Footnotes in this book often have their own sanielewski often concerning material appearing hundreds of pages later and are a giant sandbox for Danielewski to play in.
