House of leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
I read this book for the first time four years ago, and I have read it many times since. It is unlike any other book out there, I promise you. Best work of postmodernist literature in my opinion. Very dark. Very complex. Danielewski is not just an author; he is well-versed on the concept of semiotics and of the famous deconstructionist Derrida. (If you don't know who Derrida is, check him out.) In other words, this book utilizes crazy page layouts and pictures and notes and much, much more. Meanwhile, pick up this book. Read it. And have your mind blown.
WARNING: if you are easily offended by vulgarity, as in sex drugs violence and explicit language, this book is not for you. the content is extremely mature.
“To get a better idea try this: focus on these words, and
whatever you do don't let your eyes wander past the perimeter of this page. Now
imagine just beyond your peripheral vision, maybe behind you, maybe to the side
of you, maybe even in front of you, but right where you can't see it, something
is quietly closing in on you, so quiet in fact you can only hear it as silence.
Find those pockets without sound. That's where it is. Right at this moment. But
don't look. Keep your eyes here. Now take a deep breath. Go ahead, take an even
deeper one. Only this time as you exhale try to imagine how fast it will
happen, how hard it's gonna hit you, how many times it will stab your jugular
with its teeth or are they nails?, don't worry, that particular detail doesn't
matter, because before you have time to process that you should be moving, you
should be running, you should at the very least be flinging up your arms-you
sure as hell should be getting rid of this book-you won't have time to even
Of course I looked.
I looked so fucking fast I should of ended up wearing one of those neck braces for whiplash.”
A frosty mountain wind nips at my limbs and draws chills up and down my skin. Great white clouds race each other in the world’s bluest sky, as they cast shadows and…
