The train lights cut through
the hazy, wet morning fog.
A groan. The train stops.
anybody read this?
i didn’t pick it to read right nownah i totes had a change mind so yeah i am reading it, but some input would be kind of nice because, well, it seems a tad odd
the way it’s set up
it was mentioned quite a few times in my internet perusing, and a lot of people were talking about how long/hard (i’ve been reading for 7 months…) of a read it is so of course i had to buy it
and i mean, it’s a big book, gotta be at least 500 pages (i didn’t check) but
let me show you
any input you can give me on what i’m getting myself into here would be cool
This is the best book i have ever read, it took months to read it and i couldnt even finish it the second time round, i seriously recomend it though
It looks like a descent into madness.
House of Leaves is SO, SO GOOD. Definitely stick with it, it can get weird and challenging (it’s partially a parody of academic criticism in addition to a horror story, in addition to a love story…it’s complicated). But it’s brilliant, and I love it (10/10 stars).
Three years ago, researchers fired whisky to the International Space Station as part of an experiment to see how the conditions in space change flavours. Next month, the whisky will return to Earth.
Scotland’s contribution to space research. Good job.
So the following has been going around on social media for a while. I already posted this list to Facebook, but I’ll share it here, too.
“List 10 books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take more than a few minutes, and don’t think too hard. It’s not about the “right book” or great works of literature, just ones that have affected you in some way. Doesn’t have to be in order.”
