House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski

Posted to What Are You Reading?

I admit I started reading it only because it was written by Poe's (the singer, not the writer) brother, but I'm actually enjoying it. The character Johnny Traunt's footnotes are often graphic, but they remind me of how I write, and some of the same paranoid and raging feelings I have often tried to express. Plot wise is simple, but Danielewski goes in depth about the psychology of the characters.

I prefer it over what the rest of the tenth grade is reading, which is whatever books that are made into movies.
