Read full description of the books:
Voluntary Committal is one of the most amazing novellas I've read in 2014. Once again Joe Hill breaths more fresh air into the horror genre! With so many over done cliches filled with vampires, teen slashers and the walking dead, Joe Hill shows us that we can have original plots that take place within a horror setting! One of the many things I admire about Joe Hill is that he gives us characters we can care about and would like to see survive until the end of the adventure. They have flaws, imperfections, likeable personalities, and realistic problems. As Joe Hill so elegantly put it, "You want to cringe every time their life it put in danger." As a avid horror fan I find it charming when someone can actually make me connect with the main protagonists in any horror story.
The basic set up of this precious morsel is the regret and ongoing trauma of a older brother named Nolan. His younger sibling named Morris who has a strange ability to open up doors or gateways to other worlds. Joe Hill does the right thing by keeping these abilities mysterious and varied enough, so you get the genuine creeps throughout the whole 40 page story. We are also introduced to the troubled delinquent Eddie who pulls our main protagonist into a world of regret and trouble. I found all three of these main characters very interesting and very unique.
I give this story a five out of five stars! It's definitely one of my top three favorite stories in 20th Century Ghosts! And for the most hardcore Joe Hill fans, my fan theory is that Morris' ability is really his inscape!
