Rating: ★★★★★

The literary equivalent of a ‘found footage’ horror film (like The Blair Witch project or Cannibal Holocaust), House of Leaves is spooky and inventive and probably my favourite book I’ve read all year. Its experiments in formalism are clever and complement the story perfectly, helping you engage with the story in a unique way.

I can’t recommend it enough. Just terrific.
