House of Leaves
So, I don't remember there being a thread about this book here(if there was I'm sorry), but I keep hearing people mention it and no one seems to have like it. Was it just me that thought this book was great?
All the little tangents were hard to follow at first, but I just finished reading it for like, the third time, and I like it more and more.
The poems and letters and things were great, too. I really liked this one:
You shall be my roots and
I will be your shade
Though the sun burns my leaves
You shall quench my thirst and
I will feed you fruit
Though time takes my seed
And when I'm lost and can tell nothing
of this earth
You will give me Hope
And my voice you will always have
And my hand you shall always have
For I will shelter you
And I will comfort you
And even when we are nothing left
Even in death
I will remember you.
