Weird, just weird and the main characters need to watch more spoof horror movies and not open the door so much on dark stormy nights

The story is EXTREMELY predictable. I nearly turned it off after 5 minutes, but being such a short story, I gave it a chance. When I say the ending was no surprise, it was actually WORSE than the ending I thought was coming. I feel like I read a story from a precocious 9 year old.

Fair at best but did have a surprise ending. One would link the writer would use a little more imagination. The same scenario happened way too many times in the short 40 min book.

The story was dull for me. The ending was predictable, the events happening unexplained, dull climax.

I hate that the story was short it should've been longer. Once the paranormal activities started, my heart was racing the whole time preparing for a scare, but that scare never came. I love getting that feeling, lol!!

During the beginning of the hurricane in Florida, Jennifer, a home health nurse, goes to check one last time on her elderly patient with dementia. Due to the health of her patient, she decides to bear the storm with her patient just in case. However, even as the storm picks up, it seems to be the least of their worries. This was a short but very entertaining read. It was well detailed and immersive however, I did find myself wanting more information towards the end. Why was this happening? We get a little bit of a back story as to what’s going on but not enough to answer many questions including the ending.

Ok. in the beginning, I found myself talking back to the narrator. I really thought this book was a little corny, but then it took wonderful turns, and was not what I expected. For a short story, it was exceptional. Secretly I wanted it to continue. Also, the narrator is perfect in every aspect of the role of a narrator.
