FAMILY HOLIDAY? YOU’LL LOVE THIS…

Family Holiday? You’ll probably recognize a few characters in Bob Shar’s “Snapped” at Read Short Fiction.

I thought this story was a unique take on sibling rivalry and what goes on in families—but what I also loved about this was the dialogue, especially the kids’ dialogue. Sometimes in stories like this, kids’ dialogue can sound stilted. In this case, Shar has nailed it. What a fun read.

Take a break from the craziness and check it out at http://www.readshortfiction.com/2010/11/snapped-by-bob-shar/
