Critic reviews

"My only complaint about Yesterday's Gone is that it pretty much took over my life for the last week. I can't say I didn't stop listening - I did after all manage to go to work, play with my kid, live my life...but I sure didn't want to put it down. It's extremely well written, engaging, witty and terrifying in turn, and has a plot that will keep you guessing. I'll be downloading season 2 almost immediately so I guess my spare time will continue to be dominated by Messrs. Platt and Wright. I unashamedly tout it as one of the best things I've listened to this year, and unreseverdly recommend it to anyone." (Amazon Reviewer)

Good stuff!

If you could sum up Yesterday's Gone: Season One in three words, what would they be?

Really rather riveting

What was one of the most memorable moments of Yesterday's Gone: Season One?

Most of Boricio's storyline

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No but I thought the use of different narrators for the different POVs was a great touch. Great Boricio casting! Very Morgan Freemanesque

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Brent Foster, the post Times Square scene. Heart wrenching.

Any additional comments?

This made for compelling listening, even if the pace slowed somewhat during the middle. The beginning felt a little overwhelming as all the characters and story arcs were being introduced, and I couldn't help feeling a little frustrated waiting to find out what happens next for certain characters, but knowing what kind of writing this was (I found this after hearing "Write, Publish, Repeat") I stuck with all the characters and eventually it all falls nicely into place.

A great serial just got better

Where does Yesterday's Gone: Season One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This has to rank in the top 10 without a doubt, the multi casting is great & Boricio is just how I imagined him.

What other book might you compare Yesterday's Gone: Season One to, and why?

As post apocalyptic books go this is one of the best I have read and I hope seasons 2 to 4 follow soon

Which scene did you most enjoy?

All the Boricio scenes are great, the portrayal is perfect although the most enjoyable scene has to be the ending

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

A fair amount of humour in a very bleak storyline (supplied mainly by Boricio & Charlie)

Any additional comments?

If you haven't read the ebook of Yesterday's Gone you should get this audio as I read the first series two years ago and I found listening to it was like a whole new experience

Holy crap, wow.

Where does Yesterday's Gone: Season One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the first FICTION audio book I've ever listened to. Before I picked this up, I was skeptical about whether or not I'd be able to get into a fiction audio book while working, but grabbed it on a whim and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to stay engaged with this story while simultaneously swearing at photoshop for six to twelve hour stretches.

What other book might you compare Yesterday's Gone: Season One to and why?

As far as format goes, it's a lot like the A Song of Ice and Fire series in that it switches points of view a lot, and most of the narrators are either unreliable or ignorant, which isn't a bad thing and lends a lot to the atmosphere--I don't want every little detail about the big scaries up front, and this format was fantastic for keeping the mystery going. As far as actual content, I'd compare it to some of Steven King's older stuff? I'm not really sure, because I haven't read King since the 90s, maybe early 2ks and my memory of anything I was reading or enjoying at that time is shoddy at best, making me an unreliable reviewer, haha.

Which scene was your favorite?

Do I seriously have to choose? I think some of the most satisfying parts of the book were when various groups started to meet up and merge. The first part introduced all of these characters and made me like (or even more thrillingly HATE them), and while that was great, when the different threads of story start to come together it hits all the right buttons on my 'things a book needs for me to enjoy the christ out of it' panel.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Misery porn at its finest!

Any additional comments?

I finished this book and went looking for the next part, only to find that it does not yet exist in audio format. I draw comics for a living and need background noise with no visuals to distract me, and this book was perfect. I MUST have the next part, gentlemen. MUST. HAVE. IT.
