An inventive, typographically innovative novel that pushed the boundaries of what reading can be and what a book can become.

I enjoyed House of Leaves. I couldn't get through Only Revolutions. I enjoyed this book despite there being a lot of literary "slight of hand" in it with different fonts, graphics, and pages formats throughout. However the intertwining narratives were enough to keep me interested. I hear the author wants to create 29 volumes of this series. I don't know if I'll read them all but I will try. If you haven't read Danielewski I would start with House of Leaves to get an idea of his style. I would skip Only Revolutions, and go straight to this series. The next volume comes out in October.
