    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Pros

    1. Who doesn't love a good end of the world romp? How about especially when, the end comes from god knows what. I am banking its not zombies... (hate to say this publicly but I am getting tired of zombies)

    2.It reminds me of a lot of books that I have read and loved, without being predictable. It is easy to follow. The characters are fairly diverse and almost all are likable.

    3.It is free so there was absolutely no way I could lose.

    Cons

    There is only one. The serial killer character felt forced and without dimension. It felt like the authors put together a grab bag of audacious mad libs that ranged from lame to jarring swears. I guess that is why they have the warning upfront about content. Think about this for a second. They Had to put a warning on their book because of how unnecessary and stupid some of the language is.

    Hahahha. I sound like someones mom, but I am not.

    "Bring on episode 2!"

    First of all, Thank you Audible, for giving us this opportunity! Had this not been in the "freebies" list I might have overlooked this GREAT opening episode
    This was a really good first run. Individuals across the country wake up to a seemingly empty world, The story is very much in the style of Stephen King. The author really fleshed out his characters, which to me is very important to a story. There's even a serial killer! Anyway, the big mystery is, of course, What happened. Is it an alien invasion? Some strange world war? Or what?
    I know its not an original concept, but thus far, it's a really good story! I look forward to part 2.

    "BEER BATTERED BULL SH@@"

    ANYONE TOO STUPID TO LOOT WAS JUST SMART ENOUGH TO STARVE
    It's mystery told from six different views. Many of these views are from the bad guys. Episode is correct, as at the end you will still not know what is going on. If you are like me you will certainly be captured and want to continue. I love this sort of thing and will be getting the rest of the episodes. All the narrators are good to excellent and make the whole thing more entertaining.

    Story
    "Grabbed me like the monster in the closet!"

    What happened? Almost everyone has vanished, but to where? How? Most importantly, why?

    The different narrators keep the story fresh, alive and in your mind. This book sample had me scrambling to purchase the full Season 1. I am chomping at the bit to get to the next Season.

    I am a woman who hated "Lost". I thought it was the stupidest premise ever and after the first show, I refused to watch more of it. It didn't grab me, the characters were not believable or likeable as far as I was concerned. Yesterday's Gone should have struck me the same way but it grabbed me with it's unique storyline.

    Having several narrators was the best decision the Author/Publisher could have made, it makes this story really come alive.

    "I'm hooked!"
    Where does FREE Yesterday's Gone: Season 1 - Episode 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'd say it is one of the best audio books ever. It's created very professional. Comes across much like a movie. Love it using different voices for different segments of story. Very smart offering the first episode for free. I for one am on to the next!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of FREE Yesterday's Gone: Season 1 - Episode 1?

    Very interesting meeting the group that knew "the happening" was coming before the actual occurrence. They having dreams for most of their lives and actually preparing ahead of time for it. Want to hear more of their story..


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

    This was a first listen for me with this narrator. Looking forward to listening to more of their performances.


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

    If I were to make a film of this book, I would use the tag line "Where have all the flowers gone".


    Any additional comments?

    Only additional comment I'd like to make is, "Wow, Where's the next episode?"

    "Had to get the next episode, and the next, and ..."
    Where does FREE Yesterday's Gone: Season 1 - Episode 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top ten.


    What other book might you compare FREE Yesterday's Gone: Season 1 - Episode 1 to and why?

    I personally have nothing to compare it to.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Different voices help develop different character personalities, and keep their respectful journal entries separate.


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

    I had to listen from start to finish, then get the next episode.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a free listen, Try it.

    Story
    "An Absolute Masterpiece!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This review is for the entire First Season. I have already recommended the series to friends because it is totally captivating and incredibly entertaining.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Boricio is an easy favorite because of the uniqueness of his character but I was also intrigued by Ed. I suspected early on that there would be a "big reveal" about him and I wasn't disappointed.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    This was the first audiobook I've listened to that had multiple actors. Tamara Marston portrays female, male and juvenile voices to such perfection - it was a joy listening to her perform. Ray Chase's interpretation of Boricio depicts the sheer evil that is Boricio.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    In a word, yes!


    Any additional comments?

    I purchased each episode in Season 1 individually and that was a mistake. Purchase the complete season so that you can listen seamlessly from one episode to another. Every episode ends with a cliffhanger that will leave you on the edge of your seat. I didn't have to think twice when it came to purchasing Season 2 - I bought the complete set.

    "Too many stories being told at the same time."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    someone who enjoys soap operas.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Mountain Man


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The characters were interesting, just too many of them to remember details of every story.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from FREE Yesterday's Gone: Season 1 - Episode 1?

    arranged the stories differently or just cut some out altogether


    Any additional comments?

    I wouldn't be able to stand listening to the complete season of the book.

    "Great story , characters and VERY great narrators!"
    What made the experience of listening to FREE Yesterday's Gone: Season 1 - Episode 1 the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed this stories introduction, I get the sense we are in for an epic. having just finished Swan Song by Robert Mccammon I was ready for that kind of world again, with well written and believable characters acted by professional voice actors, set in a post apocalyptic world.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of FREE Yesterday's Gone: Season 1 - Episode 1?

    The incredibly well written surreal child's eye point of view of the world of the character Luca


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The opening scenes in New York.


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

    Lucas plight alone in this strange empty world


    Any additional comments?

    The choosing of having multiple voice narrators is an excellent move, and works very well.
    It works but thankfully is Unlike a dramatisation , it gives greater reality to each person.
    But I would prefer if male and female characters were actually played by males or females
    As that one thing is usually what can lack when having one voice actor, and it seems a waste and counter productive not using male voices for males and females for females with such a great talented cast.
    I also agree that having Luca play the voice of older characters is wrong
    I was tricked by this at first but then discovered it was Maxwell doing the older voice
    Surely maxwell should be doing the other younger voices, the male teens?
    Anyway apart form that I think the who enterprise is so professionally done I can't really complain, as such attention and effort to get narrators for each role right is so rare.
    So I have nothing but positive things to say about ALL the narrators and as for others saying change them, that is plainly ridiculous! As I have never heard a audio book casted so perfectly .
