These survivors aren’t alone...

Someone, or something, is watching them.

And waiting...

    The book has a great story but I am less than 150 pages in and am so irritated at the editing errors. They put "wine" instead of "whine" and "site" instead of "sight." They accidentally threw in the wrong character's name in one sentence. I really hope the following "seasons" have a decent editor.

    Fun, fast read.

    I bought the first season on sale because I was looking for something to relieve boredom and thought I could take my time reading it. Six books oughta last a week or so, right? Wrong! I couldn't put it down! The action never stops and the story grabs you right from the beginning, never letting go long enough for you to get to a good stopping point. I finished the first season in a day and then immediately bought the three other seasons that were available and sat down for a literary marathon. Having finished them all, I can honestly say that the only disappoint I feel is that I now have to wait to get the next two seasons to see how it all turns out.

    If you like bad fiction, read something else

    It’s pretty simple, if you like a book that has great storytelling, pay the money and read this book. Serialized fiction is something that I think more people would fall in love with if they would only give it a chance. Here is your chance. You’re going to have to look hard to find a better serialized tale. Have you read the Green Mile? Did you like how there were cliffhangers between the six sections? This book collects season 1, episodes 1-6 of Yesterday’s Gone and is in the serialized format.

    If you like great television told in episodic fashion, give this serial a chance. The story is full of cliffhangers that make you want to turn to the next episode to see what the heck happens next. The characters are rich and the serialized nature leads to a fast paced page turning experience.

    If you have an addictive personality, this may not be for you. Once you read an episode you are jonesing for your next fix. No big deal when you read the whole season in one sitting (like I did), but the serialized nature leaves you experiencing the same thing you run into at the end of a great television show, you have to wait a week for the next episode. Not that there is anything wrong with that at all.

    This is the first time I have felt the urge to leave a review on a book after reading it. While I may recommend other books to friends, this is the first time I have felt the NEED to tell the world you all need to stop for a minute and take a look at what is going on here. Spoiler alert, you will not regret this purchase.

    A perfect read (all1274 pages). This book is a end of the world novel that leaves the reader with more questions than a good way. Originally written as a series of episodes, I think this longer format is much better. The strange twists and turns make you think everything from alien invasion to government conspiracy or perhaps a bad trip into an alternate reality. The characters add great dimension and move the story along with their own subplots. My only problem was with one killer character who somehow (either his personality or dialog) seemed off. To all dystopian readers this is a must have book. It should, however come with a warning...Don't start this book without enough coffee to see it through to the end. Oh wait, it doesn't end...there are six more episodes just waiting to be read. I need to dive back in and find out what happens next...

    I Also Recommend:

    Putting technical errors aside.  I was turned on to this series

    Putting technical errors aside.  I was turned on to this series because of my interest in self publishing.  The authors are extremely passionate about their work and it shows in the storytelling.  That is the best part of this series.  I am not quite finished with the first season but I can already tell that there is a great ongoing story.  My only complaint is with the Boracio character.  Without spoiling the story, one of the most consistent traits of psychotics is that they do not know that they are crazy and Boracio clearly acts as though he knows that he is crazy and even embraces it.  I am sure that the character will develop more as the story progresses but this is making it hard for me to really get behind him at present.  Other than that, it is a great story, easy to read and a great value for the money.

    You can't really go wrong on a $.99 series.

    Putting aside the usual typo's and general bad editing, it isn't a bad series. For $.99 you get quite a few hours of "end of the world" reading. It is amazing to me that writers don't get all of THERE words WRITE....I mean how hard could it be? Obviously, spell check isn't going to flag correct words written wrong, but it stands to reason that an author should have a pretty good grasp of the English language and should be getting simple words right.

    Good story. Characters are developed enough to make you care about them but not overdeveloped to the point that you stop being surprised. I have just finished season 1, over 1200 pages, and I have not figured out exactly what is going on, so I have to buy season 2. I love it when a story makes you want to know what's going to happen next.
    A previous review complained about the editing. Poor editing ruins a story, but there are only a few mistakes in this. I look forward to reading more by these authors.

    I bought the first season and couldn't put it down. It makes me

    I bought the first season and couldn't put it down. It makes me think of The Stand meets The Walking Dead so far, two of my favorites. I just bought the second season and can't wait to read it. Love the series!

    You never really know what your going to get with a series. This one is great. It's lost/dexter/walking dead/the talisman all rolled into one. The great thing about it is It's written like a tv series. Each segment is a episode. Cliffhangers all over the place. A lot of time I would actually say "no way!" Out loud. Great series. I'm on season four and It's just a great read from season to season. Booyah! You done good Sean Platt!
