Oh HELL'S Yeah!!! :ozwomp:  I hope you enjoy yourself with it!! Though, fair warning there is some pretty explicit sexual content in this book, specifically in Johnny's edit sections. Just saying in case that's something you might find uncomfortable! I hate Johnny...

Maybe when I finish my reading... I'll make a thread/topic for discussion... unless there already is one... or we use this one... htrrr haha ahaaaa!!! :dive:

hello again!!!!!!

so i've read thru a bit more of house of leaves!!! and i thought i would give some of my thoughts so far

of course, this will contain spoilers, so i will be putting EVERYTHING in a spoiler block. i definitely recommend picking up a copy, though!

without further ado, lets go !!!!

seriously though buy the book
ok so ALREADY things are very confusing. and we haven't even gotten to the super funky stuff yet.

the plot is a bit hard to explain, but i'll try my best! i'm going to create ANOTHER spoiler block because i'll be explicitly explaining the plot, by the way

OPEN TO REVEAL PLOT

the first protag we're introduced to is a man named johnny truant. he gets evicted, but he's not too sad about it, because, and i quote, "[He] could have put up a fight but the place was a nuthouse anyway and [He] was glad to leave."

(did you see what i did with the fonts?? i feel so cool right now)

also i don't really like johnny cuz of some weird stuff he says later on in the intro btw  :tongue:

ANYWAYS

so one of his friends named Lude goes like "hey man i know this old guy with an apartment. his name is zampano. you wanna check it out or smth??" and johnny goes like "yeah sure man"

so they do that. but then zampano dies

whoopsie

apart from a few marks on the floor, all signs point to him simply dying of old age.

but johnny and lude still decide to investigate the scene

while there they find a little writing project that zampano was working on called The Navidson Record.

now, The Navidson Record, written by Zampano, is about a film titled The Navidson Record written by this guy named Will Navidson.

...but according to Johnny Truant, there has never been a film called The Navidson Record.

[close]

one thing you'll notice as you read through the book is that there are SO many fucking fonts used.

this is because different characters are represented by different fonts!

johnny truant types in courier, which looks like this:



zampano types in times, which looks like this:



and finally...there's The Editors.

who are the editors??? i don't know!!! here's what I do know about them, though!

  • they're the ones choosing the fonts for the characters (johnny, zampano, etc)
  • they're the ones publishing House of Leaves (i think)
  • they might be the ones making every instance of house blue but i'm not sure
  • they type in bookman, which looks like this:



i would go into it a bit more, but a: i'm only on page 10, and b: i'm sleepy as HELL man

so that'll be it for now!

if you want to see more analyses like this, let me know!!!  :grin:  :grin:  :grin:
