Bon soir. I love this thread. I started reading "The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle" last night in the bath with my glass of wine. Loving the bizarre familiarity in the way he writes.

I'm reading "House of Leaves" now and I fucking LOVE IT!!!!!! It's gonna take me a month to read it b/c I keep getting tied up finding all the codes and riddles hidden in the footnotes (not to mention P's letter). It's an odd coincidence that I'm reading this after finishing "American Gods" - since both make reference to the World Tree of Norse mythology.

Anyone who liked this book would probably like Nabokov's "Pale Fire" as well. It is also a satire (or maybe it's a parody?) of literary criticism - dealing with the fact that any attempts at literary criticism and analysis are subjective, colored by the critic's personal history and experiences. It's an extreme case in "Pale Fire" as the narrator is so narcissistic that the whole story becomes about him, and the reader must read between the lines to find the "truth" of the matter. Anyway, it's also chock full of puzzles, riddles, and hidden codes which are quite fun to figure out.

Anyway, thank you to whoever recommended this book - I think it was Queen but I'm not sure.

I'm considering reading "Only Revolutions" next but I don't know - constantly turning a book all around to read all that upside down, sideways, etc text is annoying. Although it might be something I could adapt to, like deciphering the words in "Trainspotting." The first chapter was hard and I was constantly aware of the process of reading and translating as I went, but I quickly adapted and lost myself in the book.

I did not love House of Leaves. I did finish it, but I thought the suspense of the actual event never went anywhere, and the superfluous garbage that wasn't about the event seemed like a gimmick to me. Really good premise - I wish he'd done more with it.
