20th Century Ghosts af Joe Hill

  1. 31
    Fragile Things: Short Fictions and Wonders af Neil Gaiman (mao21234)
    mao21234: Gaiman likes to embed stories in his introductions- as a nod to Gaiman, Hill embeds one in the acknowledgements at the end of the book.
  2. 10
    Pictures From An Expedition af Alexander C. Irvine (msouliere)
    msouliere: Like Joe Hill, and very much in the spirit of Ray Bradbury's short story collections, this book is eclectic and exploratory in nature. Good stuff!

I loved these stories! Joe Hill is an absolute fantastic writer who creates these surreal yet realistic worlds.
"Best New Horror" was a great start to this collection. It was one of the most wonderfully disgusting things I've ever read, with smaller stories within.
I think my favorite story was "20th Century Ghost" with its touching plot and beautiful descriptions of nostalgic films from my childhood.
"You Will Hear the Locust Sing" is a wonderful tribute to Kafka.
I wanted more of the museum in "Last Breath". I hope he expands on the concept in the future.
"My Father's Mask" is such a trip! Like Alice in Wonderland meets "Masque of the Red Death", but all from Joe Hill's mind.
The last and longest story of the collection, "Voluntary Committal", started off a bit slow, but it picked up quickly. When I was through, I felt like it could very well be made into a movie one day.
Over all, these stories were creepy, charming, beautiful, weird, and wonderful! ( )

I picked this up to read one afternoon, and could not put it down. While I will say that a few of the stories in the collection beat you over the head with their Intended Message or devolve into predictable endings, there are others that are weird, wonderful, new treats. This is one to run, not walk, to the bookstore for. (Personal highlights: the wonderful opener "Best New Horror", the dark, sweet title story, the new-spin-on-an-old-story "Abraham's Boys", and the spectacular, bizarre, dreamlike "My Father's Mask".)

2,5/5. No está mal, pero la expectativa creada en el prólogo de la obra, además de la frasecita de la portada, me hicieron crear unas expectativas que el autor no ha sido capaz de cumplir. No son malos relatos, pero tampoco me han vuelto loco; algunos son interesantes, pero en su mayoría siempre hay algo que no me acaba de convencer.

Sin más. ( )

i didn't finish this before it was due back at the library and ultimately, i don't mind; whilst some of the stories i read were phenomenal, they also freaked me the hell out, and that's not something i seek out in my reading anymore. ( )

I thought this was a remarkable collection of short stories, standouts for me were "My Father's Mask", "Voluntary Committal", "The Cape" and "20th Century Ghost". Each story had a certain unique flair and left me wanting more. "My Father's Mask" was truly extraordinary, he needs to continue it. I feel that it was unfinished, I still am thinking about it, hours after reading it.

This is a book that I was meant to read in between books, however it was so good that it demanded my full attention. It's a must read in my books and I'm sad that it is over.

This book is going to haunt me for a while and I think that's what Mr Hill was aiming for. Remarkable.

This would have received five stars if it wasn't for all the bloody baseball references. I also wasn't a fan of "Better Than Home" because of this. Scrap that story and it's perfect! ( )
