I'm surprised and a little disappointed that there isn't a single review for this excellent book, especially on the site that introduced it and convinced me to read it. Anyway, this is really good book. It has an interesting duality to it, alternately portraying Johnny's mostly crappy life which gets worse as he goes deeper and deeper into Zampano's notes and Navidson's somewhat optimistic move into a new house, which spirals downwards as he investigates the house. The odd page layouts later in the book are interesting and reflect the book's action in a very unique way. The book is well written. In fact, I found myself genuinely caring about the characters after a while. The books reads like a satire of literary analysis and academic snobbery, parodying the ridiculous amount of detail some papers devote to analyzing a small aspect of a film or book. Even though it can cost $20 for a new copy of the full-color edition, I would recommend that you get that one, as it gives you everything. I can't say it enough. This is a great book and though there are a few somewhat boring sections, they don't last too long and if you can get through them, the book becomes better after-wards.
