The story is based around a window hence the name The Open Window It all starts with a young girl named Vera and a guy named Mr Nuttel having a conversation about her aunt who is yet to come onto the scene The little girl asks the guy if he wants to know why her aunt keeps the one unparticular window open in the middle of October This is actually the beginning of the story Three years ago to this exact date her aunts husband and two brothers left on a hunting trip only to never return They have gone on this trip many other times and each time to return to this window So each year she leaves the window open hoping for their return The climax of the short story does not take place until Mr Nuttel spots three gentlemen coming toward the window He grabs his things and is out of there before the aunt and the little girl can even say a word In my opinion there were not really either a protagonist or an antagonist in this story There was no real action for these characters to partake in I also do not think there was really any strong or weak point in the plot because I found this story not to have much of a plot at all I did not enjoy reading this short story However I did like the central idea of the story I just think the author could have put a little more effort into it Romance at short notice was her specialty Pg 819 This was the last line of the story and it came from absolutely nowhere It makes no reference to the story and I dont think it should have been added Three years ago that would be since your sisters time Pg 818 Can we please talk English
