BOOK REVIEW | Chambers – Brent Jones

Hi everyone!

I’m excited to be reviewing another short story by Brent Jones today.

Escaping abuse at a facility for assisted living, Gordon B. Sutherland, twenty-two, locks himself in a high-rise hotel room with a single-action six shooter. He sets it on a wide desk, next to a telephone, six phone numbers on a scrap piece of paper, and a single round of ammunition.

Six numbers.

Six chambers.

Just one bullet.

Putting his faith in a higher power and a desperate game of Russian roulette, he picks up the receiver, hoping to make peace with those he cherishes most before going with God.

Chambers, a new short story from author Brent Jones, is a gripping tale of compassion and humanity, delivering an ending audiences won’t see coming.

In a very short amount of time, I was completely invested in Gordon and his story. I’m not always emotional when reading, but this story had me tearing up a bit.

With themes of compassion, sadness, and forgiveness, Brent Jones has crafted yet another amazing short story. I was blown away by the ending and I’m still trying to process.

A very quick read, but very powerful. I highly recommend it.



From bad checks to bathroom graffiti, Brent Jones has always been drawn to writing. He won a national creative writing competition at the age of fourteen, although he can’t recall what the story was about. Seventeen years later, he gave up his career to pursue creative writing full-time.

Jones writes from his home in Fort Erie, Canada. He’s happily married, a bearded cyclist, a mediocre guitarist, and the proud owner of two dogs with a God complex.

  1. You’re starting to give me a big head, Jessica!

    Yesterday, I entered a competition, submitting a new (and previously unpublished) short story of mine. As a thanks for all the love you’ve shown me, both in 2018 and 2019, I’m going to email it to you (as a PDF) right now. No one has read it yet! Just check your email in five minutes.

    Thanks for reading and reviewing Chambers, Jessica.
