Mini Assignment #2 – Book Suggestion by Dr. Spencer Reid

My name is Dr.Spencer Reid, I am an FBI BAU Supervisory Special Agent.

I am one to read quite a large spectrum of books, mostly sticking to non-fiction. Reading allows me to learn a lot more about our world and in some cases helps out with cases.

I indulge in some fictional books from time to time for personal enjoyment. One book that I find to be quite intellectually thrilling is House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski.

Description from GoodReads states:

A young family moves into a small home on Ash Tree Lane where they discover something is terribly wrong: their house is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside.

Of course, neither Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Will Navidson nor his companion Karen Green was prepared to face the consequences of that impossibility, until the day their two little children wandered off and their voices eerily began to return another story—of creature darkness, of an ever-growing abyss behind a closet door, and of that unholy growl which soon enough would tear through their walls and consume all their dreams.

Most label the book under thriller, horror, paranormal, mystery, contemporary, and fantasy.

House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski doesn’t follow the typical structure of regular books; text isn’t read from left to right, text is not within columns, or centered, not all pages contain text, etc. That’s what makes the book so thrilling.

House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski will challenge the reader with basic comprehension, breaking through typical reading norms, and push intellectual comprehension. The reader will have to go through the book multiple times, and with each passing through more of the story will be uncovered. I would recommend those who find enjoyment in books like these, to take their time and have fun while uncovering the mysteries written within by Mark Z. Danielewski. Enjoy!
