House of Leaves, M. Z. Danielewski

Zelf ook een critisch oog op geworpen maar daar kwam niets meer uit dan dat het boek te awesome voor woorden is. Het is op een zeer aparte manier gedrukt waardoor het lezen ingewikkeld maar ook grappig en interessant wordt. Het is wel een kluif om door te komen, naast de drukwijze, is het ook moeilijk geschreven.
