I really don't know what made me start this series. I kept saying, okay, I will purchase just one more episode. I guess it's time I have to admit that it does have a certain something.
Unlike most end-of-the-world-zombie-gut-slinging- gore on every page novels, Yesterday's Gone doesn't use that violent drama as the foundation for the storyline. It doesn't hide from violence and blowing blood and guts everywhere, but it does play distant second to the role of relationships and the underlying mystery that makes this book readable.
I have purchased episode 5, so I can no longer say I'm trying it out. It is true, I want to see what happens next. I'm still listening.
Entertaining, clear distinct characters, some narrators have better range than others as far as depicting different characters however overall it's well done and the story continues to lead you on with suspense/ mystery. a bit like The Stand with a splash of War of the Worlds.
All of a sudden, the book just ended, unexpectedly. I had been listening, and waiting for "something" to happen.... Seems like this episode was a bit of a filler. I had to look when it ended to make sure it wasn't just the end of a chapter... I will continue with the next installment, and see where this story goes.
So good I can't stop listening. Great characters story plot ect. And it just keeps you guessing without leaving out so much
