What the Critics Say

"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)

Disappointed

It's gonna be short and to the point.
R.C Bray is as always fantastic. If he'd been able to narrate the whole lot himself it would only get low marks for a so-so storyline.
The lady and the guy who voice Mary and Charlie are both pretty good too.
But my God,Edward.I was actually kinda enjoying Edwards voice til it revealed he was only 40. I'd just assumed he was 65ish. But that was nothing compared to 'Jade and Ken' they were as laughable as they were painful to hear.
Narration aside,the actual content was pretty meh for me. The author clearly has no kids or spends very little time with kids. Luca is 8??? He is written as a 4 year old. My 9 year old son would beg me to keep him in if Luca was our neighbour. I don't know of any 8 year olds with a few years of schooling under them who would be so utterly infantile as Luca is written.
So it's fair to say I had more than a few gripes with this collection and I'm gutted I wasted a credit on it. If it wasn't for R.C Bray I would simply give it 1 star and leave no review.
Be warned,this is more of a teen terror read than a proper adult apocalypse.

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.
