The Cookie Tin, by Nigel Edwards

A novella (or extended short story) from Greyhart Press.

Rating: 4.5 stars

Genre: Scifi / fantasy

 “Have you ever wondered how someone would feel if they were you?”

“Are you sure?”

I have to be honest here… the cookie tin is not the first short story I’ve read by Nigel Edwards, so I had an idea of what to expect, in short something original and potentially thought provoking.    In this case it’s the idea of how you experience someone else’s emotions if they were thrust on you – a question of interpretation perhaps…?  The story comes across as what i like to call a ‘mysterious fantasy’ in that you don’t quite know what to expect but there are still elements of the sci-fi/fantasy genre thrown in there.

As always it was beautifully written, with no annoying grammatical errors and in good ebook format (at least for the kindle).  The only fault I can come up with is a plot-turn/twist in the middle, which I found a little sudden (and if you’ve read it I’m referring to her choice of ‘test-subject’).  Although this veered away from the predictable flow of events (which I consider a good thing) it still required a leap of faith.  In the end however, it worked well, almost as if you had been thrown into the situation much like the main character had been.

For a short read I’d definitely recommend this one.  😉
