“Passion has little to do with euphoria and everything to do with patience. It is not about feeling good. It is about endurance. Like patience, passion comes from the same Latin root: pati. It does not mean to flow with exuberance. It means to suffer.”
-House of Leaves
I am not what I used to be
This book is Haunting me. The house is changing, winding round itself and there is no escaping here.
Enclosed within is metafiction.
House of Leaves is science fiction. House of Leaves is horror. House of Leaves is romance. A self aware jaunt into the mind of the author. This maze of experimental structures will sink its teeth into you and follow you home.
Main character Billy is boring. Main character Billy is basic. Main character Billy is the perfect vessel to take us on a tour of China Miéville's wild and mysterious London. Complete with a giant squid, assorted cults, a criminal mastermind, an ancient spirit (who's rather friendly), two goons (who are not), and a smattering of magic users; Kraken truly has everything a lover of 20th century pulp might desire. Join Billy, the glorious average in us all, as he attempts to survive a world not so mundane as it appeared this morning. With so many competing armogeddons you may just find youself watching the sky.
