"The nationally best-selling author of House of Leaves and Only Revolutions has crafted a powerfully chilling novella--a ghost story for grownup readers. Late one evening at a party at an East Texas ranch house, five orphans gather to hear a story about a quest for a terrible weapon. Before them lies a long black box with five latches. As the owner of the box settles into a curious tale of revenge, the children grow more and more captivated, even as we grow more and more afraid that a new crime may await them all, especially as clocks in Upshur County approach midnight"--… (más)

I'll fully admit that, within the first few pages, I fully expected to mark this as a DNF. But, by the time I was about a quarter of the way in, it managed to wrap its wiley, ninja-like tendrils around me and pull me in.

And, in the end, though I'm still not a fan of either how it was written, or how it was presented in book form, I quite enjoyed the story.

Enough that, for the first time, I may consider actually reading House of Leaves now. ( )

I'm totally amazed that Danielewski isn't nuts. ( )

I have only myself and where I've been and what I found and what I now bring. And it will frighten you.

This a fascinating/frustrating endeavor.
The book is beautiful -- as an object.


Au Contraire


The slippery meanings of the words within this book are elusive and possibly overwrought. There is a gleaming poetry in MZD, there's just a poverty of such in The Fifty Year Sword. ( )

Decent story. Odd presentation. ( )

Before reviewing this book (but after reading it), I read a handful of reviews others have written. Inspired by those reviews, I'll say this:

I'm not usually that interested in having my story spoon-fed to me. I like to work for my stories, and Danielewski delivers. I don't, however, see the need to act as inscrutable and mysterious as Danielewski's writing. More power to you if that's your thing, but it's not mine. So...

The book starts off with an intro that, in summary, says the story will be told by five narrators, each with a certain tonal influence, and depicted in the story by different colored quotation marks. Neat idea, but in practice the different personalities had (to my eye) either too subtle or too few differences to make them stand out. They ended up blending into a single narrator, which wasn't a detractor, but seemed a shame.
The story itself was as engaging and deep as any of his others, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. ( )
