    1 thought on “An Honest Day's Work”

    1. I don't understand how Mr. Jones gets you so emotionally involved in his characters so quickly, and in this, a short story, but he does. So who teaches who here? The protagonist or the antagonist? Grips you immediately, blasts your own moralistic sentiments, then leaves you haunted. Damn

    2. Gripping readThis story showcases two honest men. A Short and powerful reminder things are not always what they seem. Well done.

    3. A small town baker finds his faith tested after making a deal with a drifter—a deal unpopular with some of his regulars.

    4. Jim Cooke is a baker that has his own business for 30 years in a little town. One day a homeless man comes in and asks to use the bathroom. While this is going on, a regular customer of Jim, Todd, throws a fit about Jim’s behavior. Jim then offers the homeless man, Bob some food. Bob wants to work off the food and Jim gives him some flyers to hand out. The next day Todd throws a huge fit when he learns about this and demands that he wants free food for handing out flyers too.Jim has a good hea [...]

    5. A short, albeit powerful story that'll grab you from the first page.There's nothing about the story itself I can discuss here without giving any more of it away than what you can gather from the description - but I can say thisIt probably won't take more than 15-20 mins to get through An Honest Day's Work, but Brent will pull you into the characters, make you care about them, get you thinking, and will leave you wanting more.

    6. Just a short story An interesting story of a baker, his customers, and a homeless man.Short stories are so hard to judge. Character development is difficult, plot has to come quick and hard for the reader to understand the story.I was drawn into the story pretty quickly. The ending left me a little perplexed, but I suppose that’s a good thing in this case. It makes a person think.

    7. 'All my life I had professed faith in an all-loving, all-knowing God, but it turned out I couldn't see the Devil right in front of me.'A good and truthful tale involving the age old adage 'don't judge a book by its cover' sometimes a Horror can be a Fairy Tale, and sometime a Fairy Tale can be a Horror.

    8. Another great story from Author Brent Jones! I love how his stories have tons of value but it's not over done or obvious until you're thinking about it later. And this one definitely left me thinking! Great, short read that has tons of character.
