So, I'm a child. House of Leaves has completely creeped me out. I do understand this is the point. I have also been mired reading it long enough to know much of what it's about, checking into its creepy little dark corners (yes, I do make intentional puns here) and I'm pretty satisfied with it, content-wise. Meaning-wise. Yep. But one thing pisses me off. Several times (there is some rapid-page-turning during parts, as well as some gripping pieces which spit a sentence on a page, on purpose), I could swear publishers electrostatically charged the pages so they are harder to pry apart. Technologically it's do-able. I mean, there's no reason they can't do it, it's well-understood. But would they be so evil as to fuck with the hardware of a book??
Seriously, someone tell me this is not happening. For once, I want it told to me that I am paranoid.
