I got recommended this piece of trash, I don't understand why people like it. It's entire shtick is just having weird writing.

Are there other works that could be considered “signiconic?”

Is there some kind of riddle that I'm supposed to solve here? I've read it twice. Discovered some interesting details, but nothing of real note. Spoon feed me?

Currently reading House of Leaves. I've seem many people say it's too pseudo-intellectual and relies too much on gimmicks but I'm enjoying it so far. Might re-read Revelation Space as well, really enjoyed that the first time through.

I loved this book and the Fifty-Year-Sword too. But I've heard mixed things about his other books. Anything else of his worth reading?

Thoughts on House of Leaves? It's been a good read so far, albeit a little difficult

We can all agree that this was utter cringe, right?

Is it worth reading? Is it truly experimental or is it just quirky formatting to mask a bad novel?

So I just finished this book- excellent read- and was looking for further reading recommendations. Particularly searching for books to challenge how I think about the world (new years resolution is to expand my literary horizons). So /lit/ help me out

First paragraph
>Actualy, Lude had told me about the old man a month or so before that fateful evening. (Is that right? Fate? It sure as hell wasn't -ful. Or was it exactly that?).

Wew.
Do I put it down?

Just finished reading this and I was blown away by the sheer amount of effort into each page. I'm not one that gets scared by horror easily but that shit unsettled me more than any other piece of media I consumed.
