Publisher's Summary

Start the first season of the groundbreaking postapocalyptic serial: Yesterday's Gone: Season One (episodes 1-6).

WARNING: This is a postapocalyptic horror audiobook where bad people do evil things, and as such, this series features disturbing scenes and foul language. While it is all within the context of the story, some listeners may find this content offensive.

Can humanity survive what it never saw coming? On October 15 at 2:15 a.m. Earth vanished. A scattered few woke alone in a world with no rules, other than survival at any cost. A journalist wanders the wretched reality of an empty New York, searching for his wife and son. A serial killer must hunt in a land where prey is now an endangered species. A mother shields her young daughter from danger through every terror-filled breath.

A bullied teen is thrilled to find the world gone missing, until the knock on his door. A fugitive survives a fiery plane crash. Will he be redeemed, or return to the killing he's best at? An eight-year-old boy sets out on a journey to find his missing family, only to find something that will change him forever. These survivors aren't truly alone.... Someone or something is watching them. And waiting...

Strangers unite. Sides are chosen. Can humanity survive what it never saw coming?

    "Top notch post apoc with engaging characters"

    I'm a huge fan of post-apocalyptic fiction, but am so often disappointed with survival scenarios that involve characters I could care less about. I love that Platt and Wright cast a wide net of characters that are so engaging, with killer cliffhangers to the end of their chapters, that you go ravenous to read (or in my case listen) to as many chapters as you can. The audiobook is the way to go. Every narrator is top notch. Make this part of your commute and you'll wish you had to drive across the country to get there. I'm dying trying to wait for books three and beyond to make it to audiobook. I switched over to the Breakers series for now so I can engulf these in quick succession.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "WOW...do not miss this start to an AMAZING series!"
    If you could sum up Yesterday's Gone: Season One in three words, what would they be?

    GIVE ME MORE!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I can't place a favorite character whatsoever, the ensemble cast of narrators brought EACH characters perspectives to life so amazingly. Usually multiple narrators/full-cast audiobooks are very hit or miss, but they def outdid themselves with the talent in this group! BRAVO!


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

    I ONLY really listen to audiobooks, very rarely do I read e-books. The experience of a great narrator/reader totally makes a great book EVEN better. This audiobook further emphasized that point home for me!


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

    Although the book and series is very graphic in nature, and not for everyone, the language and graphic nature itself isn't USED for shock value like many other books & tv-shows these days. Those parts actually drew me into the story even further, adding an extra level of believeability...


    Any additional comments?

    I was so excited to find out Season ONE of this series was coming on audiobook, as I had heard & read so many great reviews at Amazon and from friends about this series. Being an audiobook fan, I finally can experience this great story. Platt & Wright are one hell of a writing team, and this Kindle "serial" series proves just that.

    My biggest hope is they continue to release the other seasons in audiobook VERY SOON (currently up-to season FOUR now)...so Podium Publishing take note! There is a BIG group of audiobook fans like myself that often miss out on great books like this just from being overlooked by publishers! Please don't make that mistake :)

    BOTTOM LINE: If you love tv-shows like Lost or Walking Dead, books like Stephen King's "The Stand", or simply a damn good entertaining story you cannot get enough of....then check out this audiobook! The talent found in this ensemble narration team alone is worth the credit!

    "Fast paced and great plot"
    What did you love best about Yesterday's Gone: Season One?

    The pace was done well and the different characters were great. For as many characters as there were, the depth of them were great. It will definitely make you hug your kids more and spend a bit more time with them, because you never know what may happen.


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

    I don' t read much of the genre.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Edward was a very interesting character, as was Boricio. Both narrations were excellent.


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

    It was too long for that, but it did keep me listening to it at a fast pace.


    Any additional comments?

    Bit too much gloom, I want to continue the series, but with the way it feels and how David Wright is, I imagine it will come to an end with too many of my favorite characters gone - like George R. R. Martin does.

    Story
    "This is not well written"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would change 1 of the narrators and I would ask that the same story be written by a more mature person.


    What was most disappointing about Sean Platt and David Wright ’s story?

    It felt like I was reading a story written by teenagers, there were multiple instances where I felt that the person writing the story hadn't had the experiences they were writing about, and I'm clearly not talking about the whole zombie thing, I mean things like smoking marijuana or even simply understanding how certain people might feel in certain situations. There's one narrator that does the voice of a child, and you would think he'd never spoken to a kid before, way too naive and ridiculously innocent, the way he narrates is obnoxious and it's unfortunately a major role, If not for the language and subject matter it could easily have been written for teens. Actually, I've read books written for teens that were written so much better.


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

    I don't think so.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Depends on who produces and directs it.


    Any additional comments?

    I wouldn't suggest this book to anyone with a decent amount of common sense or maturity.

    "Riveting"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Yesterday's Gone: Season One to be better than the print version?

    I haven't yet read the print version, but might have to grab a copy now. I want my husband to read this wonderful story.


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

    I was hooked from the first moment when Brent picked up Stanley Train. The ending left me shocked and needing to read more, my jaw literally hit the floor. I don't want to say too much about the excellent middle bits because of Spoilers.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Each of the narrators was perfect for the character they were reading. I particularly loved Luca and Borricio.


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

    If I had a long journey then this would be great. I did have to walk slowly as I went about my daily business so I could find out what happened next. It could be distracting to have to rewind when talking with real people.


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful book, and luckily for me I finished it on the day season 2 came out. :)

    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.

    What did you like most about Yesterday's Gone: Season One?

    The twists and turns in the story, the authors wanted to achieve cliffhangers with each season this they did.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Sean Platt and David Wright ? Why or why not?

    Yeah would take a look if the story appealed,will be getting season 2 of this if/when available


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    All the narrators did a decent job special kudos to whoever voiced Boricio


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

    Nah it takes a really good book to do that :D. This was decent listen where you don't have to think too much just sit, listen and enjoy


    Any additional comments?

    A decent listen,it has me curious as to what happens next, so more then happy to continue onto the next season. Besides that ending....they can't leave it like that! I need to know what happens.

    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

    Nope.

    All of the narrators do stellar work. The plot is the problem.

    I enjoyed this. Telling the story from serveral perspectives keeps it fresh and interesting and the narration is done very well.
    The story is interesting and engaging, there are quite a few layers to the mystery and I'm certainly interested to see what happens. It is not overally complicated though and I found it easy enough to follow whilst commuting.

    The only thing I would say is that if you don't like swearing , this is not for you. One of the characters uses a lot of colourful language and imagery. Don't say you weren't warned !

    I haven't heard the narrator before. He's excellent. He does the female voices well - something not all narrators manage.
