So theres this book, house of leaves that I discovered just recently in a weird way.
I listen to this band called Circa Survive and on their album Juturna they have a song
titled Meet me In Montuak
and its a 14 minute song , but the actual song only takes up 1:20 seconds of the track and
the rest is silence. I usually skip over it after the song, but i  just let it play and on
8:56 seconds a different song stars, a hidden track. So I listened and I fell in LOVE with
the hidden track so I found the name of the song Which is House of Leaves,and the song is
about that book in a way. so i Looked up the book and apparently it's maddening. It's
written in ergodic lit style and i heard its the mos complicated thing to understand. From
reading reviews alot of people said it made them a bit crazy and they had and still have a
weird feeling. Withing the pages of the book words are colored and flipped around , and
words are written backwards. There are pages where  words are scattered around and placed
in boxes. Whelp Ive never read the book and im really really really interested in it, I
didn't want to search to much on  because i didn't want to spoil it , but alot of people
says it a weird horror story and its hard to place it in a specific genre. well I wanted
to know if any of you guys heard of it or read it.
