It might take me a good long while to collect all my thoughts about She’s Come Undone, but I can say this. It’s instantly one of my favorite all-time books. I’m a little pissed that it’s over.
I am about 2/3 of the way through House Of Leaves, and I am decidedly not enjoying it nearly as much as I did the first time I read it, nearly ten years ago. I can’t quite put my finger on what it is that is annoying me. I remember actually being genuinely frightened the first time I read it. Staring at the corners of the walls of my house and incessantly wondering “what if”. Now I feel completely bogged down by the meta academia and scientific tangents. Maybe it’s because it’s summer, and I just want a damn good story, not a labyrinth to follow.
Either way, I find myself desperate to finish, and it kind of makes me sad.
