Whats the best way to read House of Leaves? Chapter 9 is referenced early on, so should I skip to it or just read it straight through?

Also, I've heard that you don't get the same experience with an ebook version that you would with a physical copy. Is this true or just pretentious garbage?

Read it the same order you would any other book.

Physical copy if you can. There's a reason the title is called House of Leaves.

Are you referencing physical copy vs ebook, or the hipster garbage part?

The typography (which is a pretty essential part of the book) probably doesn't convert well.

get the coloured copy of the book. as the other anons said read it in order and read the physical copy.

It involves a lot of typographical gimmicks like colored text and mirror writing. Ebook formatting tends to be pretty shite so I doubt it carries over all that well.
