House of Leaves

I just finished it, including the boatload of appendices.  I generally liked it, but I found it uneven.  I was really into the parts about The Navidson Record (suspenseful and really interesting to think about) but kinda bored by the Johnny Truant bits.  I had a really hard time sympathizing with him and really getting into his story.  Some of the appendices were similarly boring, but they did have useful clues about the rest of the book.  So this wasn't my favorite, but the Navidson bits definitely made the book worth it for me.

I think your feelings on House of Leaves were similar to mine.
