At least you are trying to understand it. I don’t have the patience for this book so instead of trying to solve the puzzles, I just cheat by looking them up on the House of Leaves forum page. I can’t help it. I’m a busy college student with a lot on my mind. I don’t have the space in my brain right now to worry about puzzles and codes in a book. The story is really good though so at least I’m still getting something out of this book.
