Read in February, 2009

This is probably one of the most complicated books that I've read in a long time. I'm not even sure I can explain what the book is about, I'm not even going to try, I'm just going to say that it is about a guy reading a story that starts to go crazy. The book is complicated to follow, there are footnotes, the footnotes have footnotes, text is written backwards, upside down, diagonally, there are codes to decipher, and then when you finish the book, you're not entirely sure what you think happened, really happened. The book leaves you with a creepy feeling, and I no longer look at my house the same way.
