    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!

    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.

    Would you listen to Yesterday's Gone: Season One again? Why?

    Yes, I at first found the different storylines a little hard to follow but got into it. I will listen again as the season is worth the second listen.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyable, I like the format and recommend to my fellow audible fans on the genre

    If you could sum up Yesterday's Gone: Season One in three words, what would they be?

    Wow. Just Wow.


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

    The entire book is memorable.


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

    The voices, the power behind the words, the expression. I listened to a free sample of this book and was hooked.


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

    Why was I left behind?


    Any additional comments?

    I am looking forward to more. Lots more. This type of book normally isn't my genre, but it reached out and dragged me in involuntarily as if I were one of those left behind. I had no choice except to buy the season, I wouldn't rest until I continued listening.

    "Buy this audiobook, then get Season 2"

    I'm not a huge science fiction fan, but I really enjoy end of the world reads. This book, however, was awesome! The only thing better is Season 2. The authors have five seasons out now, and the sixth will be the finale. Here's hoping that Podium gets all of them produced and here on Audible!

    "A slow to start but soon to ensnare story"
    Where does Yesterday's Gone: Season One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Yesterday's Gone S1 is a fairly solid entry into the apocalypse genre . I would rank this book in the top 3rd of my collection.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    There are some gaps that are left unexplained, perhaps to be delivered in season 2. Overall though as the story progresses the many narrators pull a well spoken story into a cohesive and strong collection.


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

    Ray Chase as Borico Wolf. I instantly was entranced by Ray's amazing voice, and I am now mostly interested in a crazed sociopaths story line.


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

    When darkness comes, can you choose the right allies?


    Any additional comments?

    Give this story a chance. Once the book wrapped up I went for season 2 on audible and felt pangs of anguish that S02 was not readily available to me! Keep up the work Platt & Wright!

    "Anxiously awaiting the second season!"
    If you could sum up Yesterday's Gone: Season One in three words, what would they be?

    Intriguing,edge-of-your-seat thrill ride!


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

    I truly enjoyed the whole storyline! However, for me the moment that most stuck in my mind was when two of the characters reach Times Square and are astounded by the enormity of their new reality.


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

    There are several narrators and their performances are carried out really well. I especially like the way that Buricio's character is read. He is made to be, clearly, one creepy psycho!


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

    I wanted to listen to the whole book, but I knew that I was going to have to wait for the nest installment so I tried to take it slow.


    Any additional comments?

    If the second season is as good as the first, then I hope the third season will be available soon!

    "Interesting but not riviting"
    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    I was surprised that having so many narrators worked pretty well. When all the characters get together and all the narrators also, it will be interesting to 'hear' how they do.


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

    My extreme reaction was: It's another 'World has ended" book. Nothing special. Not really an original story. Reminds me of "Lost".


    Any additional comments?

    I do not like the way they divided up the books and also saying "Season". These are books, not a tv show.
    So it's on my "if nothing else comes up, i'll continue" list.
    It's an experiment and I give it a solid 3.

    "First review after 300+ books"
    What did you like best about Yesterday's Gone: Season One? What did you like least?

    The story drags it could not hold me. After reading the reviews I thought I would give it a try and was disappointed. The narrators did their best but at time over acted trying it impressed interesting but they tried to hard.

    I kept waiting for it to be the story that was promised but it's just another zombie take off.

    "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.

    "Farfetched nonsense but enjoyable"
    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
