    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.

    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.

    "An interesting start to the series"

    A really interesting start to the series.

    We start with a set of individuals who have all awoken in thier various abodes to a mystery. Wet get a different narrator for each person - this helps greatly in following the different storylines. All of the narrators do a great job.

    The story line is also interesting. I feel like they maybe gave a bit too much away for the 1st in a series, but I'm really interested to find out what happens.

    "Lost/Stephen King!"

    I loved this story. It reminds me of a classic King novel, like the beginning of The Stand, introducing all the characters and bringing them together.
    Off to get episode 2 now!

    "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 .

    I am still 20 mins from the end so don't know what the cliff hanger will be but will definitely be continuing with this series as more become available - they are already available as E-Books so come on Audible - pull your finger(s) out!
