The husband and wife, unknowing, sleep in the same building after their shared infidelity.

Great Narration

Never Walk Away, Never Say Goodbye is an excellent eighteen minutes short-story ever. I really enjoyed it. Once again, Rodney Falcon's performance shines.

Just an afternoon at the hotel.

I wonder how often this happens in real life. Husband and wife both cheating and most likely not communicating with each other about what’s happing to make them feel like they need to cheat. This reminded me of a scene out of a movie. You don’t get all the details, just the one scene. Narration was great. I would recommend this book if you just want a short listen that gives you a lot to think about.

Very Short

Austen Szott sure wrote a lot in such a short listen. Infidelity is the storyline in this book. Rodney Falcon performed the book perfectly. I didn't see the end coming.

Infidelity

Infidelity, that's the name of the game both are playing. And it's in the same hotel. So what happen next?

interesting

Strange coincidences that the spouses committing adultry each chose the same hotel and pass like ships in the night unaware of each other. Small world! Internal thoughts. I enjoyed it and wanted more. The narrator did a great job with this short story. I voluntarily listened to this and am giving an honest review.

Ironic Infidelity

Austen Szott is an interesting author, very abstract yet to the point. This short is the infidelity of a married couple and their partners. It's premise is unexpected and catches your interest right away. It's shows how secrets are kept, but not always too far away. Very captivating in it's language, it had me entranced the whole time. Rodney Falcon brings this novella to life with his performance. These shorts have let me see the diverse ability Falcon has with his narration. He gives this story a serious and dramatic portrayal that is entertaining.

never let go, never say goodbye=killed inside

I love Austen's writing style! it really forces you to slow down and visualize what you are reading, with his, "extra descriptive words"...the story becomes much more intense . I have always been able to see the story vividly...but Austens books take it to the next level!
The narrator could've used a better fitting voice for the story.

Interesting Short Story! Great Narration🎧

This is an interesting, short story, Austen Szott is descriptive and has a way with words. Husband and wife unknowingly adulterate, he with a prostitute and she with a young man she met at a retail shop. Interesting on the differences of each affair, the husband’s room faced west toward the sunset. He felt lonely, helpless and bored afterwards. His wife’s room faced east toward the sunrise, she felt happy, glowing and rejuvenated afterwards. The differences in their sexual encounter were like night and day too, the husband not lasting and the wife going at it multiple times with her. The husband and wife stayed in their respective rooms and their lovers left and had a brief encounter in the hotel’s bar, leaving Chelsea before leaving the hotel. A bit of odd story and a little sad, but still an entertaining one.

I listened to the Audible edition, Rodney Falcon is a wonderful narrator and storyteller. He brings the story and it’s characters to life from the pages to your ears. Thanks for this entertaining listen🎧
