* Alternatively, it is in some way connected to SilentHill. "Physical manifestation of guilt", anybody?
** I think anybody who played the Catacombs level of ''SilentHill2'' before reading this book had a very distinct mental image of the Labyrinth in this story, regardless of how the book describes it, and possibly wonders if it might be a spiritual cousin of Pyramid Head the explorers hear rampaging in the distant darkness...

''[[EldritchLocation House]] of Leaves'' is not good or evil. It is a piece of nothing wrapped comfortably in narrative. Devour it. Chew on it. Taste the empty, [[WorldHalfEmpty and let your body learn to fight it.]]

[[WMG: The above theory is ''almost'' correct...]]

But the ultimate consequence is wrong. The book is not an infection, but an unstable vaccine. This explains the way those who have encountered [[EldritchAbomination the House]] sometimes recover (Karen, the children) and sometimes are overwhelmed (Holloway). The same is true for the book in-universe: the band at the end clearly found [[BrownNote the book]] meaningful without being destroyed by it, while Johnny barely survived his encounter with it.

* A [[GeniusLoci house]] that constantly changed form depending on someone else's subjective appearance would probably drive Rand completely bonkers, considering her obsession with the "objective." No wonder she wanted to get rid of the thing.

*** ..."He(Ts'ui Pên) must have said once: I am withdrawing to write a book. And another time: I am withdrawing to construct a labyrinth. Every one imagined two works; to no one did it occur that the book and the maze were one and the same thing".-Creator/JorgeLuisBorges...who just happened to write a short story called "The House of Asterion" about [[spoiler: the Minotaur.]] Definitely not a coincidence.
