i finished the book. it's terribly, cryptic, and only slightly anti-climatical. it's for the best that most things are only hinted at, but i don't see the need to completely over-analyse it. the point is surely that it's mysterious? danielewski's talent is in giving enough information to hint at even more information. it's all very lovecraftian, especially in the telling (dear reader, the book i have discovered is grave, oh! the secrets it reveals... etc.)
