HORROR STORY by Carmen Maria Machado

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This morning, I spotted a link for this story on my Twitter feed and decided to check it out.

It's not long, just over 1,000 words, but it packs quite a punch.

Essentially, it's the story of a haunted house. About what happens to the couple living there, and how the house is affected by whatever freaky stuff is going on around them...

Like I said, I quite liked this story. The ambiguity about what's going on gives the narrative a surreal quality that kept me glued to the screen until I reached The End. It felt almost nightmarish. The writing is also lovely, the words used--and how they were used--helped paint a creepy story.

One that'll resonate for days.

I'll definitely have to read more stories by this author.
