One thought on “Doppelganger

  1. Mysti Parker

    I read this short story by Jenny Twist quite a while back when it first appeared in the anthology Bedtime Shadows It still sticks with me to this day because of the vivid speculative plot that I ve come to love from this author.Beginning with a suicide attempt, Christine s less than ideal life suddenly turns a 180 when she wakes up in a huge house, in a strange bed, and finds clothes on the floor belonging to a large, sweaty man From the first few pages, you re left wanting to know how this stor [...]

    Although I m decidedly unlettered in this particular genre Surrealism Fantasy SciFi , Jenny Twist is clearly a mistress of it.I ll venture a declaration here and hope it doesn t sound as foolhardy to you who may be well acquainted with the kind of literature of which The Doppelganger is a perfect specimen as it does to me in venturing it No matter how fantastical or imaginative, a good story remains a good story provided we, as readers, can identify with the characters in it Bizarre though the p [...]

    This short story by Jenny Twist is a sort of What If tale What if I had done this differently What if this hadn t happened What if my partner hadn t cheated on me The story begins with Christine in the bath having taken loads of pills of all descriptions and drunk several bottles of wine in the hope that she would drift off and leave her life behind her Sinking below the water, she thinks that it is all over In fact, it is just beginning She awakes in a totally different life as a completely dif [...]

    We ve all dreamed of starting over, making different choices, having a different life In my own experience, the life I lead now is totally different to the one I would have chosen for myself I love it, but I do miss the things I planned as a teenager No vegetable garden, no dog, no small rural town lifestyle And to be honest, no John Wayne lookalike But that s OK, because having read some memoirs of what he was like, I didn t miss much outside the packaging I ve often thought that young people w [...]

    This is one of those touch of magic stories that plays on your mind and stays with you for a long time Christine is in the bath having taken dozens of pills and drunk several bottles of wine She s hoping for a quick and sleepy suicide but she s lingering longer than she expected Then she wakes in a large white room has she failed, is it a hospital room This is a lovely room with swishing curtains looking out to turquoise water and pale blue sky, a new life is beginning Without giving further awa [...]

    Christine is unhappy and has had enough of her deadbeat husbandThis well written tale hooked me from the start It s clever, realistic and magical at the same time I loved the imagery and how so few words said so much, both about the characters and the setting.Fabulous storytelling and it would be great to read a sequel.Highly recommended.

  7. Christopher Carrolli

    I loved this story when I first read it in Bedtime Shadows In it, Jenny Twist defines for us the meaning of paranormal romance to perfection A must for her fans

  8. Terry Tyler

    This is a most entertaining long short story with the element of dark humour and tongue in cheek that I recognise from Jenny Twist s non fiction articles it s a fab one to snuggle up in bed with for an hour before sleep Favourite quote, about a love rival Daphne had nothing about her no personality, no intelligence Kevin said she was his muse You d think a muse ought to at least be able to do joined up thinking I get that you have to be of an age where one was taught to do joined up writing to g [...]

    Who among us hasn t wondered, what if a different road had been taken It s been the subject of films and a raison d tre for time travel Jenny Twist has created a compelling and at times beautiful contemplation on roads not taken, alternate lives, in this short story It calls to us, addressing the pain of disillusionment and disappointment, awakening hope that change is possible It makes me think of Charles Dickens, giving Scrooge another chance to live a better life Read Doppelganger, and you mi [...]

  10. Su Halfwerk

    Doppelganger gives hope It s about making the right choice when it comes to matters of the heart I connected with Christine, even found myself glancing at my toes as I read the first few paragraphs Christine s reasoning and actions were drawn well with a tight writing style Even at the end, Christine s choice made total sense I hoped to see of what she d do to reach her goal, but you know what I think the story ended at the right spot, allowing me to imagine and insert my own plan of action if [...]

  12. Tara Hall

    I absolutely love this story and read it over and over It caught my attention in the anthology Curious Hearts, where it was first published, and never let go I was drawn right ind loved every moment of it I reveled in the moment when Chrissie told Kevin to Get lost in graphic language My only regret was I wanted to see the reunion between Richard and Chrissie, when she found him in this world I badly needed read STILL NEED an encore, and will never look at sparkling red wine the same way again [...]

  13. John Steiner

    Doppelganger, by Jenny Twist, invokes the often terrible What If s a person is plagued by when reflecting on their life choices Christine s original life only came up roses when the man in her life needed to make an apology for habitually cheating on her as she earns the sole paycheck, manages the home and takes care of the kids However, in the new reality Christine wakes up to, she discovers the intricate details that often escape one s daydreams about the better life they could ve had John Ste [...]

  14. Nancy Silk

    A Very Compelling Short Story This story, which takes place in England, has charming British dialogue It s a short paranormal story of Christine waking up in a room unlike her own She had been a little chunky, an older woman, but as she looks down at her feet, they are no longer broad and chubby but longer and thinner, as well as her now beautiful body How did this happen This is a very intriguing, entertaining, well written story which really captivated me Highly recommend.

  15. Emily

    The premise of this story is very appealing and Jenny s flowing writing makes this an easy and thoroughly enjoyable read.

  16. Lynette Sofras

    I m an avid fan of Jenny Twist s novels and short stories and have never read one I haven t thoroughly enjoyed Doppelganger is no exception It s a delightful piece of fantasy that really strikes a chord Surely we ve all been there at times imagined ourselves living a different life when we want to escape the tedium of this one for a while When Christine s humdrum existence leaves her questioning the point of it, the last thing she expects to find is a light at the end of the tunnel giving her a [...]
