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.

Blown away!

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.

Good stuff!

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.

A great serial just got better

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

Deceptively Good.

I took a gamble on this book. I listened to the first episode which was free and decided to buy season 1. That was two days ago and I just finished season 2.

The overall story is great and the authors make some crazy decisions during the first two seasons and they definitely make you want more. Some of the characters are written fantastically and details are not spared.

The only issues I had with the first two seasons was the swapping of narrators, most of them are good but two in particular are a bit lacking, you do get use to them after a while but some of the characters stories converge and hearing a different narrator voice a character that was voiced by someone else for the last 10 hours can be a little off putting. That aside, the story is good enough to keep you going and deal with the slight break that occurs when narrators switch.

WARNING, the book can be a bit graphic on some very adult themes, if you can't handle this or are easily offended. I would approach the book with caution. This isn't a constant and there is only two scenes that really stood out to me regardless of the fact that it didn't bother me.

Looking forward to season 3.

Interesting read

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

RC Bray is mono tone and using the same pitch to for narrating both Bran (spelling?) and Louis is absolutely killing me. There's so much conversation between these 2 character but he made it sound like a person is talking to himself. Maxwell Glick's voice is young and he sounds very very different when the narration was switched to him. At least he tried. Sean Platt, and Ray Chase has gotta be the best narrator here among the group. Their narrations managed to keep me stayed on the course and finished the season and not quitting it.

Overall storyline is rather interesting, but over the course of the entire season, we have not a single clue what the heck (not defined yet) are we facing here.
