In The Open Window, A new neighbor named Frampton Nuttel visits a young girl named Vera who entertains him with a ghost story of her aunts’ life. When he observes the "ghost" he leaves in a fright and we find out the girl (Vera) is just very good at making story. Frampton Nuttel is suffering from nervous problems and trying to spend some time in the countryside of Britain. In that storey the readers were in confusion until the last part was read. I really disliked the point that the readers did not understand the flow of the storey. However, it is also awkward that Vera was lying and confusing Nuttel when he has come to her to cure his nervous problem. On the other way, I liked the storey, as it has a very strong effect in the readers and they must be involved until it is not finished. It is one of those short stories, where one or two characters make the story a successful one.
