This Is Not For You by halley42 This Is Not For You by halley42
It's actually for :iconreasonably-sunny: who introduced me to House of Leaves, mailed me her copy, and was therefore accessory to the hell being quite frankly scared out of me.

Here, Johnny Truant seems to have found the House. Or, maybe, the House found him. Either way, I think he's going to need a bit more than that one match.

Johnny Truant and the House on Elm Tree Lane belong to Mark Z. Danielewski. If you haven't read House of Leaves, I really recommend you do... if your nerves are fairly strong. If not... refer to the title.

Everyone needs to read this. Just don't read it at a time when you need to get a lot of sleep, because... you won't.

This is a book that takes a decent swipe at turning you into the main character as you're reading it- and he's like Boyd in a beanie. I got stuck in my room after finishing it because the light wasn't on in the hallway.

oh, dang, this doesn't get any easier with practice... okay.

It's about a guy called Johnny who finds a manuscript written by the old guy upstairs, who'se just died.

No, wait...

It's also about the old man, who's writing a book about a documentary by a man called Will Navidson...

...it's about a journalist called Will Navidson who's filming a documentary about his family moving into a new house, all fine and dandy until a new door appears, leading to a series of black, empty rooms which don't fit in the house's physical space, and there's something nasty in there...

...or maybe it's something to do with the lady who's writing a series of letters to her son from the mental institute she's confined to...

...and parts of it are in code. And other languages. Or upside down. Or different colours. And there's something behind you. Right now. No, don't look.
