Summary

This is a visionary/experimental novella about a young, beautiful woman, murdered and buried nearby in the same ditch as an old homeless man who was beaten and kicked down the hill on the fringe of a park, left for dead, just out of sight. 

The spirit of the old homeless man speaks to her and tries to guide her into the afterlife, explaining to her what happened, and what she must do to let go of the life she had tragically taken from her, with memories of the once-in-a-lifetime experiences that he had lost as well, and brief, raging comments from the escaped murderer.

What do dead people talk about?

This is a deeply thought provoking story about a man and a woman who were murdered and thrown in the same ditch. They murmur the events, feelings & expectations of their lives leading up to their deaths, and ponder their existence as they lie in the ditch and beyond.

The author has a specific creative writing style which is almost more poetry than the strings of narrative surrounding it. Although it is a very short novella, it actually felt much longer as you listen intently to every word, while you investigate & digest the mystery surrounding their deaths. Very well narrated.

I was given this book for free of my own choosing and I voluntarily left this review.

interesting stuff

Maybe not because I am not used to this style of writing! As I had been given this free book, I enjoyed listening to Rodney Falcon, so thank you for allowing me this opportunity to something different.

A Writer who Deserves to be Read

Strange and wondrous, visceral and heartbreaking. The writing is at times reminiscent of Jim Morrison’s poetry. I really am quite in awe at the talent I have just experienced. More, please - author, don’t stop writing, whatever you do..

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Thought provoking

A heartbreakingly beautiful story that highlights how brief life is. Rodney Falcons once was the perfect choice for this book and these characters.

Thoughtful

This is nothing like what I usually listen too. It’s very thoughtful. But probably a bit beyond me! The poetry is lovely especially as it’s Rodney reading it too me!

A look at what happens

This may be short, but there is a lot packed into this story. Not your typically written prose, Austen Szott lets two souls recently murdered speak to each other after death. An old homeless man helps a young woman know what happened to her and find her way with a poetic prose. It's a provocative listen that will leave you thinking long after it's over. Rodney Falcon's narration is riveting, and let's you in on the pain and struggle of these souls. It's not my normal listen of his, and I loved his change of genre. It showcases his talent and let me see him in a different light. Another enjoyable listen.

What?

I still have a few minutes left to listen, but I had to pull the description back up. For the simple fact, I'm not really sure what I'm listening to. Is this a murder? Is this sex? It's too intimate and could go either way. It's artistic to say the least. It's not poetry in the traditional sense, but poetic all the same. Murder/ sex, both so close on the same spectrum. Then whats after? What's after death? About the same that come s after sex. I'm not sure if I'm impressed or confused. Maybe both. Kudos to the author. I'm still scratching my head, wondering why I enjoyed this so much.

Definitely , an intense published work, that has such witty scene creation, mixed with the narrarator doing his best to fit a new style into his abilities, was great...one of my favorites from Austen Szott' s purely unique line of inspirations

Riveting & Thought Provoking! Great Listen🎧

Another original and interesting story by Austen Szott, he is creative with his words and imagination. An old homeless man is beaten and left for dead in a ditch on the outskirts of the park. The following day another body victim is left in the same ditch, a recently murdered woman. The old guy starts conversing with the woman, soul to soul. His conversations are like rants, some are short bursts with visions and thoughts with descriptive details sometimes sounding brilliant others like they are coming from the mind of a madman. This is a short novella, intense and a bit bizarre, different than any other but it sure does make you think and wonder.

I listened to the Audible edition, narrated by the talented Rodney Falcom. He is a wonderful storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thanks for another great & entertaining listen🎧

Heart pounding, and Thought Provoking!

This quick listen was an abstract, poetic look into the heartbreaking and confusing thoughts of two souls who lost their lives too soon and so tragically. It was hard to follow at times but made my heart race as I felt their anguish. Rodney Falcon's narration was haunting and captivating. If you enjoy experimental,thought provoking stories, you will enjoy this listen.

Perfect audio when looking for something short

This is the first time listening to anything from the author and narrator and I was not disappointed! This was perfect for me to listen to while I was on my lunch break. It was short, but not rushed, and kept my interest.

Rodney falcon

Rodney ‘s voice is the best and only notable part of this confusing story of 2 murder victims... too much comparison analogies, not enough substance makes this difficult to follow.. I will not honey hesitate on a book with him as a narrator, and look forward to another book of his.
I did receive this book as a promo, without a solicitation of review, but this is my honest opinion...

Novella

Schedule 1, Anaeveris by Austen Szott is a visionary/experimental novella about a women murdered and buried nearby an old homeless man who was beaten and left for dead. I listened to this book on audio narrated by Rodney Falcon. Rodney Falcon did an amazing job. The story was definitely outside my usual reading genre but I received a free copy of the audiobook from Rodney and wanted to give it a try. I would highly recommend listening to this book while not doing anything else so you can follow the story. I had to keep rewinding because I would miss something while working and listening to it.
