Once there was a strange house. Then a man named Navidson who lived in the house with his family made a film about the house. Then a blind man named Zampano wrote a dissertation about the film about the house. Then a guy named Johnny Truant found the manuscript about the film about the house. What you end up reading is the manuscript with Johnny's notes, complete with Zampano's footnotes and other additional material in the back. I had heard a lot about this book, often with it appearing on lists of great horror novels. While parts of this book were creepy, and sometimes it can get into your head, I can't really say this is a "horror" novel. It was almost too much work to read (took me over two months). Sometimes you had to read the book upside down or decode a passage, or flip forward to read a fifty-page section of an appendix because that's what the footnote said to do. The idea of the darkness inside this house was pretty creepy, and a while back I had a weird dream that was definitely influenced by this book. I just wish the story of the house wasn't so filtered.
