The Johnsons is a quick frightening ghost story that I stumbled upon and thought I should tell you about. Short stories sometimes leave me feeling underwhelmed with underdeveloped characters or stories that are boring. The Johnsons isn’t one of those.
From the first two or three paragraphs, I immediately knew each character, the setting, and that the entity in the house was very much present. The vividness of the story has left me unsettled and delighted all at the same time.
If you’re looking for a quick read to give you a scare, definitely give The Johnsons a read. I give it 5 out of 5 Stars.
