    1 thought on “Gingerbread”

    1. Gingerbread is a tale of crime, guilt, and the darkest quality that humans possess – to inflict harm on themselves just to feel what it’s like, just to fill that black hole inside. It begins with a simple story about two kids breaking into a candy factory out of boredom and lack of occupation, risking to get caught by the mysterious Candy Man. At first I was sure it would be just your ordinary factory worker, tired of misbehaving kids. Boy, was I wrong. The story quickly took a sinister tone [...]

    2. You can read my full review of Gingerbread on the CommonBookSense blog page, as well as a mini-interview with the author!*disclaimer: we were provided a copy of this book for an honest review*I went into the pages of this book not really knowing what to expect. "Gingerbread," I thought, "hm, maybe Christmas. you know, the Gingerbread Man?"I'm not really one for short stories. I've only reviewed one other on the blog (you can see it here), and even then I didn't really know what to expect. My who [...]

    3. Victor Davis' Gingerbread is a dark fast-paced thriller set almost entirely within the claustrophobic confines of a shadow filled candy factory. Enticed by the sweet treasures within and fuelled by the pure adrenalin and excitement of the dare, two children break in at sunset to be confronted by the terrifyingly named "Candy Man". Well written and nicely presented inside and out (with an intriguing cover) the style, atmosphere and setting reminded me of Ray Bradbury's classic Halloween Horror "S [...]

    4. A delightfully dark little tale. This short story wonderfully depicts the exhilaration of stepping outside one's safe world and entering the darkness in search of a sweet reward.

    5. Gingerbread is a shining example that, however rare, a short story with no ratings, no reviews, and a modest cover, might also be great. I don't normally read--and probably wouldn't like--"fairy tale" type books, re-telling or otherwise; but I doubt there are many others like this one. The writing talent is undeniable.The descriptions are smart, original, and although you know exactly what was meant, just ambiguous enough to feel like maybe you're the only one who got it--an inside joke between [...]

    6. Gingerbread by Victor A. Davis is a cross between the stories Hansel and Gretel and Peter Rabbit. This story is based off of a dream that Davis had. Eddie, the town misfit, dares his friend Arainy, the good girl, to sneak into the candy factory. Despite knowing the risks and that Eddie has been caught by the Candy Man before, Arainy still does it.First of all do NOT read this story to your children. This is more of an adult fairytale due to the violence that occurs. I chose to read Gingerbread b [...]

    7. Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions. I keep my visions to myself.Like the meaningful words sung by the legendary Fleetwood Mac, Victor A. DAvis' "Gingerbread" is ethereal and born out of the dreams. Putting the essence of a dream into words is no easy task. In fact, it's mostly an unsuccessful task. However, in Davis' sinister reiteration of "Peter Rabbit", it's the chimerical imagery that makes this story better than your average re-imaginings. The plot has two friends, Edgar and Ara [...]

    8. This short story was different from what I would think of as a short story. I enjoyed it. It was a little dark and I like that. Guess I'm crazy sometimes. This story with kids as main characters at first I didn't think it could be very dark but not true. I enjoyed this book very much. I quick read for me. * I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

    9. Gingerbread is a adult short fiction story that takes you to a candy factory. Two children, Edgar and Arainy are trapped in a Peter Rabbit kind of situation. What begins as a trick or treat and being overwhelmed by the delicious smell of of gingerbread, bringing back all kind of childhood memories, ends up in a cruel beating once the factory owner, the Candy Man discovers the two.

    10. Wow this short story is a well crafted, chilling read that stays with you long after you've finished it. It's creepy, with touches of fairy tale and sci fi elements that make it a truly unique read. I loved this!

    11. For a very short story this is amazing. It keeps you hooked until the last page and has so much packed in you feel like you reading a novel.
