Can humanity survive what it never saw coming?

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?

what's happening

please tell me what's going on, I'm totally confuse. This story needs clarity. Way too many cliff hangers

Season 2 here I come!

Just remember buying the whole season at once will cost you twice as much! Hopefully Audible fixes that soon.

I'd say, "A Must Read," but that's to cliche.

I have to admit, I've never read a serial book, but I'm glad I have! It's an unconventional story where the sci-fi aspect is closer to the present then the future, and could easily be labeled a mystery or thriller. The characters aren't just something to fill the story, but are the story! Clearly three dimensional, and easy to care about! The story isn't the zombie or "rapture" crap we've been assailed with, and enough twists and turns to make you dizzy! Well, I'm on to season 2, and so more beer battered...you know!

Goes from strength to strength

I have to say that this story has just gone from strength to strength. The characters continue to evolve and become more nuanced and interesting as they take on the challenges that are being placed before than. Those who are lost leave an impression that lingers even once they have left the stage. This was a particularly thrilling sequence because it seems that a lot of things are coming to a head. The survivors are finding out things that they had no idea about before while at the same time being in the dark about so much of what is happening around them.

I have been enjoying this series since I started it and listening has just made it that much more enjoyable. The cast is excellent and really gives me good thought images to work with. I can picture them based on their voices and characterizations which says so much about them and the material.

I would wholeheartedly recommend this series.

Crazy Twists and Turns

Definitely some unexpected plot twists here. This was a pretty solid way to finish out the first episode. I'm glad I bought them in pieces with how much cheaper it was. the split up parts did not ruin my experience. If anything it seemed like a longer story.

What the hell!

I was loving the books and then I got to the second half of the first season and you don't pick up where the first half leaves off? What about the cliff hangers? You can't get is so involved and drop us like that! I really feel betrayed! I will not continue listening to a book series that abandons its own story line! I wanted to love this book series but I can not recommend it because of what it did!

Oh! No! What else can happen?

I have to say...I am loving this series! There are so many twists and turns in this story that I never know what will happen.

Absolutely awful!

What disappointed you about Yesterday's Gone: Season 1 - Episode 6?

This was absolutely horrid! The other episodes were good enough that I could ignore the increasingly bad voices, they kept you on the edge of your seat and spread the bad out so it didn't overwhelm the story.
Now I normally scoff at reviews that hate books because bad things happen in them, but there is such a thing as too much. If you save up every bad thing for a single piece of the story, only the bad is going to matter, nothing else. And in an episode where a dog is torn to shreds and a serial killer and rapist are shown in all their depraved glory time upon time, I have been completely turned away from this series.
