Short Story 13: On the Weekends Sometimes by Ben Greenman


On the Weekends Sometimes by Ben Greenman
Available ONLINE - posted by Harper Perennial on their website Fifty-Two Stories, which promises a new (or classic) short story from their collection, posted every week throughout 2009.
My Rating: 4 on 5!

In this story Boyd has a good friend Pathos, who is married to Anne. Boyd like Anne. Boyd is single and tries hard not to show his feelings in front of Anne, which becomes increasingly difficult as the marriage of Anne and Pathos is already on the rocks.
This was a good read. It was entertaining, I like reading about such situations! The best thing about this story is the way in which the story is told; there are lot of dialogues and that makes it a very easy read and makes the reader to stick around till the end. What happens in the end, is for you to find out!

I read this one for 100 shots of shorts challenge, he is hosting! Join in the challenge here.

i was wondering if the stories we read as children – cinderella and snow white and all – would they be considered as short stories? would LOVE to revisit those…
