A challenging, playful, and endlessly rewarding read, I think House of Leaves will easily stand the test of time as one of my personal favorites. It is interactive on a level I've never seen before outside of children's puzzle books, but at the same time tells one of the best paced, most carefully plotted narratives you're likely to find.

Expect to make an investment in this book (in both time and colored note pads), and when the going gets tough, push through. I promise you there's something golden buried at the heart of the labyrinth.
